Perfect color for your photos.
Color.io is an online color grading application that puts photographers in complete control of color. Powered by industry leading color science and a processing engine with built-in analog film response models, photographic look development has never been more powerful.
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.
Preview color transforms in three dimensions in real time.
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 modelling 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.
The same color. Everywhere.
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.
for more than 600 cameras.
Color.io allows you to develop raw photos from over 600 cameras directly in your browser. A powerful VisionLog™ RAW interpreter paired with a custom wide-gamut ACES © IDT enables cinema color management for digital photography with a logarithmically encoded base image - an ideal starting point for grading in SDR and HDR.
Images developed from camera .dng originals and 16-bit .tiff composites using VisionLog ACES IDT workflow in Color.io.
Color.io debayers and interprets raw image data in a wide-gamut color space with a logarithmic gamma called VisionLog. The resulting image contains all shadow and highlight information and is an ideal starting point for creative color grading and look development. Cinema Raw describes the non-destructive conversion from VisionLog Raw through ACES to the output device transform.
