Controls that respond like film.
Tap into your images full potential with powerful tools that have been designed for natural, photographic color that deeply integrates into your images so that even extreme edits never look artificial.
Exceptional color (and texture) emulation.
Deeply transform your images without ever making them look overedited or badly filtered. Color.io enables cinema-grade color science for digital photography, develops raw images from over 600 cameras and exports ACES color managed LUTs directly into Photoshop and most other apps. A powerful VisionLog™ RAW interpreter paired with a custom wide-gamut ACES © IDT serve as an exceptional foundation for color grading images unlike ever before.
Raw development in Color.io is powered by VisionLog - an ultra-wide-gamut, log-encoded color space compatible with built-in ACES © color managed. The VisionLog curve has a wider dynamic range than a standard linear encoding, which means that it can capture all detail in both the highlights and shadows of an image - a perfect starting point for grading.
Real Film Halation.
Color.io comes with optical film halation simulation that recreates the effect of very bright light causing orange-red highlight flaring on analog film. It's an important characteristic of many film stocks that can not be created through color grading alone.

Grade hundreds of images at the same time. Multiple documents, batch export - you got it!
Rather than overlaying grain textures like most other software, Color.io deconstructs your image and rebuilds it pixel-by-pixel using synthetically generated film grain. This results in an incredibly organic look because the underlying pixel structure of digital images is entirely reconstructed to match the grain distribution, density, rotation, size, and color gradation of real film.
Analog color science. For deeper pixels.
Color.io combines analog color modeling with the ease and flexibility of digital color grading. Powered by the VisionColor Halide™ Engine and a revolutionary ACES © color managed workflow, it is now easier than ever to bring out highly dense colors from your images.
Start in Color.io. Finish anywhere.
Export 3D LUTs to use your color grades in third party workflows. LUTs are like universal presets that ensure the grades you create in Color.io look the same across applications, photos, videos, 3D renders, game engines and more. Color.io LUTs work everywhere and are also fully ACES color managed if you need it.
