[prMac.com] Haaltert, Belgium - Phoenxsoftware today is pleased to announce the release of FlashPhix 2.2 for iPhone and iPod touch devices. This new major version adds amazing features to control the color of a picture's lighting which comes in addition to the ability to control light and dark tones separately. The great set of features turns FlashPhix into a perfect mobile Lightroom replacement and even enables iPhoneographers to apply spectacular and adjustable filters to their shots.
FlashPhix 2.2 is an app with highly customizable effects which enables people to control the lighting of images to the uttermost detail. This highly advanced lighting app enables you to take the Lightroom experience on the road and directly edit pictures shot with your iPhone. And this all at full resolution in a simple and sleek interface with an app optimized for great performance and low memory/power consumption.
The features of FlashPhix range from simple features for the average user to an advanced lighting system for professional photographers or hobbyist iPhone photographers. Everyone is able to operate it to their level of knowledge and people are even tempted to experiment with the more advanced features. For the new feature, “Channels”, which enables people to enable or disable certain RGB channels in the lighting of an image, are even step by step workshops available.
The normal lighting feature enables everyone to simply alter the global exposure of an image with one simple slider and a live preview of the made changes. In that way under-or overexposed pictures can be fixed within a matter of seconds.
The advanced lighting feature enables the more advanced user to alter the intensity of shadows and light tones separately with two sliders and now also with three buttons in which you can enable or disable certain color channels. In this way you can compensate or purposely create color glitches. For example, when you want a forest to get a blue glow, but you don’t want to edit the bright sky, you simply disable the red and green channels and slide the “shadows” slider to the right and the trees will turn blue and the sky will be left untouched. There’s also a global slider in this feature to shift what FlashPhix sees as light and as dark tones.
The final feature is the most easy one, the magic lighting button simply analyzes an image and applies the necessary change automatically in a matter of a few seconds. You can just lay back and FlashPhix will correct your picture’s exposure and contrast.
