Creative Color Effects
PhotoKit Color provides a comprehensive suite of effects that let you recreate creative effects like black and white split toning and cross processing.

With PhotoKit Color, you can enhance specific colors in your photographs. You can make skin tones less red or lighter. With the Blue Enhance effect you can darken a blue sky and enhance the cloud contrast. And with the RSA Gray Balance set, you can automatically remove color-casts from almost any type of image.
