Pictographics Press Release
BullZeye™ 3 is a high speed color correction, sharpening, and noise reduction batch processing tool based on Pictographics’ CandelaColor EditLab technology.
May 23, 2006—Burnsville, MN, USA, Pictographics International Corporation has partnered with the world renowned professional photographer Gary Fong to create the BullZeye 3 High-Speed Image Corrector. BullZeye 3 is a stand-alone color correction, sharpening and noise reduction application that inspects, selects, and corrects digital pictures in one batchable step. With just one simple utility, professional photographers can produce lab-accurate color images with remarkable precision. BullZeye is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers, including OSX, and includes Gary Fong’s BullZeye 3 Tutorial. BullZeye 3 is available at Gary Fong’s web site, www.garyfong.com , http://store.garyfonginc.com/newbullzeye3.html.
According to Gary Fong, “With just one simple utility, you can produce lab-accurate images with remarkable precision. Using Pictographics technology, this program eliminates many tedious repetitive tasks usually found while working in Photoshop. With BullZeye 3, there is no need for Photoshop or complex calibration devices to achieve lab accurate color, since it performs color correction by sampling multiple areas of neutral color saturation found in the grey, white or black areas of a color image. Once it corrects the offending color cast in the neutral areas, the rest of the image then looks perfect. And, because the monitor and subjective color opinion never enters this workflow, you will have amazingly accurate images.”
“As the founder of one of the nation’s largest digital photo lab operations (Pictage, Inc), as well as a busy professional photographer, I needed something that could get past the subjectivity of color balance and accurately nail down color with complete precision. Pictographics technology is the best available anywhere… their approach is brilliant”, says Gary Fong. He goes on to say, “As we’re now processing thousands of images per week, it was a welcome collaboration to develop BullZeye 3. BullZeye 3 is an application that inspects, selects and corrects all in one viewing step, and keeps the original images safe. Whether you are a beginner or serious imaging professional, BullZeye3 saves you an immense amount of time and ensures optimum image quality.”
BullZeye 3 is a customized version of the award winning iCorrect EditLab Pro color correction and editing software marketed by PictoColor Corporation (www.pictocolor.com) and is designed specifically for the high speed color correction requirements of professional photographers. Wayne Huelskoetter, Pictographics President, said, “Gary Fong is a participant in Pictographics Technology Licensing, OEM, and Private Label Program whereby companies can quickly and easily provide their customers with very sophisticated color correction tools in a simple and easy to use form to Make the Color Right™.
