With Palette Effects you are not hopping into a Photoshop Extension that gives you push button satisfaction, save that for the other convoluted panels. With Palette Effects you are working with a non-destructive workflow reliant system that is backed by the color theory principles of the great painters. The education + the panel will accelerate your post-production knowledge and the once trifling “Color Theory” will become second nature!
Palette Effects 2.0 is optimized for a systematic approach to color grading and stylization. It follows Blake's time-tested workflow of Tone, Color, Effects.
The Effects in Palette Effects are unique and can only be found in this panel. Each Effect uses Color Theory principles to help you add emotion to your images quickly.
One-Stop Color Grades
Palette Effects is the only Photoshop extension that allows for quick color grading using colors you need with powerful blend modes for seamless color grading.
Instant Blend If
Blend if is the most powerful feature in Photoshop as it allows you to blend any effect with accuracy and efficiency. Palette Effects is equipped with one-click blend if adjustments that take the guesswork out of Blend if!
Instant Color Wheel
Palette Effects will build an interactive Color Wheel inside Photoshop while you work. It is imperative that one understands Color Theory and the Color Wheel is the foundation for it all.
The Grading Palette
The heart and soul of Palette Effects. It was built by a painter to mimic the painter's palette. All the colors you need to grade your images are included with intuitive pre-set blend modes.
The Grading Palette is not only for efficient color grading. It offers analytical tools to assist in your color grading efforts.
If you take your photo too far, Palette Effects can address your canvas and make an educated decision to recover tones and colors. It is a fail safe of sorts to ensure you maintain tonal and color accuracy.
Palette Effects can make a custom mask from any color in your image. With the click of a button, you can build very effective masks for fine-tuned color grading.
Color Grading Columns
Each column in Palette Effects is pre-set with a Blend Mode for the colors in the rows. These buttons allow for efficient and predictable color grades to help you build a style with ease!
Simple To Use
No matter if you want to create a BW conversion, try one of the breathtaking lens effects or learn how to color grade an image – the panel provides you with a tool. No button clicking and predefined looks – you always find a layer stack that sets you up for success but also leaves you with all the freedom to tweak and adjust the effect to your liking.
No mistakes – this panel is not for the faint of heart. What Blake offers here is an ingenious piece of work created by an artistic genius – and not very easy to digest.
For that reason, the panel comes with a bundle of profound, laser focussed education – a vital and very valuable part of the whole comprehensive package.
I especially appreciate the newly included parts of color theory, I love the glows, new haze and lens effects, feel still slightly overwhelmed by all the new stuff and I’m very happy with the first new post-processing results.
The video tutorials provided me with all the knowledge to use the panel – and now it is on me to continue practicing.
