A color grading app for photography workflows.
Color.io is a color grading and film look creation tool specifically designed for photography workflows. With advanced film-derived color science and grading controls, getting a true film look for RAW images has never been more accessible.
A simpler way to stunning color.
Color.io is a look development tool powered by analog color science that makes it easier than ever to create cinema-grade color and texture for your photos.
True film color (and texture) emulation.
Color.io is a standalone raw image editor and film look development tool that offers advanced color grading features for photographers, cinematographers, and artists of all skill levels. Craft signature looks with a color engine that has been engineered for exceptional color stability and smoothness. Easily create custom LUTs that plug right into your post processing workflows - from DaVinci Resolve to Adobe Photoshop and many other applications.
Color.io is not just another film emulation plugin. It's a standalone app where every control is driven by an engine that models the non-linear light response of film. The result is painterly color that hardly ever breaks, even when you push the gamut to the extreme. Learn More
