Hello guys!

I was developing this for a while, a software that lets you quickly and easily change mood or color palette of the image, or bring colors of the foreground object to background matte.

It's here! Based on my MagicPicker's engine. Also now it supports Photoshops/Illustrator CC2019,CC2017,2015, Affinity, Lightroom, iPad - many platforms.

Here's the more detailed video - MagicTints Features video tour.

The list of features:
- Bring multiple images/layers to the color and aesthetics of existing image 
- Switch lighting conditions or mood of any concept art, photo or texture
- Bring objects to background/matte color in 1 click
- Keep original micro-contrast, dynamic range, subtle details 
- Forget LUTs. No late night tuning. Works in seconds
- Smartest color correction ever! Accuracy on subpixel level. Machine Learning core handles 8K+ resolutions
- Supports Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Lightroom CC, XD CC, Affinity Photo, Sketch, iOS, Windows, macOS, Android (standalone)
- uses MagicPicker UI engine for faster speeds
- more

Please contact me if you have any suggestions or questions, I'm always open to implementing new stuff since I made MagicPicker (oh gosh, 11 years ago).

    macOS Catalina issues

    Some Mac users reported that MagicTints 1.1 may not work on macOS 10.15 Catalina with Adobe Creative Cloud. If you updated to macOS 10.15 and color correction and matching doesn't work, if you experience the following errors: "MagicTints1.jsx cannot be opened because developer cannot be verified” and “Could not color match the following layers…”  then here's an easy fix!
    Please follow my blog post:

    After the fix MagicTints will work on Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign but you will need Adobe Photoshop CC to apply it.
