Photo software that speaks photography
Yours is a world of physical things, like aperture and camera lenses, and you deserve photography software that speaks your language. That’s where PhotoLooks 2 comes in. We take care of the mechanics of post-processing color — like crushing blacks and adjusting curves — to let you settle into a powerful, professional way of making your amazing photos look even better. That balancing act between the technical and the aesthetic? PhotoLooks helps you win it.
Colors that look beautiful and accurate
PhotoLooks 2 lets you control color in the way you’ve always wanted, with new tools that make sure important colors are accurate as well as beautiful. Skin Overlay and Memory Colors line up skin colors with proper fleshtones, while Cosmo smoothes and evens your subject’s complexion. The Colorista 3-Way Wheels separate colors into Shadows, Highlights and Midtones, giving you a time-tested filmmakers’ technique. PhotoLooks make sure the skin color of your bride looks rosy, not blushing.
A workflow as stunning as your photos
With PhotoLooks 2, you get more ways to make people and places look stunning. The new interface is even simpler and more powerful, with a modernized feel and cleaner tool appearance. Over 100 updated presets are based on real-world lighting and tested in commercial projects, so you can quickly add a stylized look while preserving every essential detail. As your photography changes and grows, we make sure PhotoLooks grows with you.

We polished up the interface you love
We kept the powerful PhotoLooks 1 workflow that you love, but redesigned its interface with a more polished, intuitive appearance. PhotoLooks 2 also has a lot of efficiency changes that make life easier, like turning on/off the Tool Chain or hiding the Color Scopes to maximize your workspace.
Finding a look couldn’t be easier
Use the Look Theater to quickly browse 100+ redesigned presets that include new PhotoLooks 2 features. Each preset was inspired by both classical photography and popular films, and tested in real-world projects. Our huge library ranges from practical lighting scenarios to stylized Hollywood treatments.
‘Golden hour’ is anytime you like
Go beyond presets and create your own sophisticated looks. PhotoLooks has a powerful Tool Chain that uses lighting, color, exposure and lens effects to imitate the real-world path of light through a camera. What does this mean? You are bathing your photos with believable, beautiful light and color.
Get skintones smooth and precise
New tools make your skintones perfect. Skin Overlay is a grid that identifies incorrect skin colors. Memory Colors is a powerful histogram scope that compares skin colors to proper fleshtones. And our Cosmo tool makes your subject’s complexion look smooth, even if it didn’t start out that way.
Individual control over every color
With the new Colorista 3-Way Wheels, your colors are separated into Shadows, Highlights and Midtones, so you can adjust every tone and shade individually. It’s more powerful than a complicated process like Photoshop’s Curves, and gives you color control that doesn’t exist anywhere else.
Your video just got more photographic
Are you a video editor? Now you can work seamlessly between PhotoLooks 2 and its sister video tool, Looks 2. Use PhotoLooks alongside Looks when doing a frame-by-frame composite, working on a JPG sequence, or grading a location still to communicate the look of a film.
Throw a parade... an RGB Parade
Whether you’re working with photos or video stills, the six scopes are incredibly useful. They analyze color to tell you what is true-to-life and what needs to be changed. Joining RGB Parade and Slice Graph are our new friends Hue/Saturation, Hue/Lightness, Memory Colors and Skin Overlay.
Looks that work where you do
PhotoLooks is quite versatile. It plugs into Photoshop, Aperture and Lightroom, giving you the freedom to use all your favorite host apps, and supports the Photoshop CS6 video timeline. There is also a stand-alone PhotoLooks.app which works efficiently outside of the big boys.
Go large and fast with GPU or CPU
Speed up your photo enhancement, even on images that are 30K pixels wide. PhotoLooks works with SD, HD, 2K and 4K images on standard hardware, and gets radically faster with the latest NVIDIA GPU cards. Switch to CPU rendering to handle larger files and improve render speed.
The power of HDR and 32-bit
HDR processing and 32-bit support give you instant visual feedback and more realistic effects, while making sure that extreme color values aren’t clipped. PhotoLooks compresses the bright values of HDR images to make them viewable and printable, without losing a speck (oops, pixel) of data.
PhotoLooks recommends specific graphics card capabilities to provide acceleration of the PhotoLooks preview in LooksBuilder. Without the correct card, the software will run, but the speed will be much slower.
Magic Bullet PhotoLooks supports a wide range of cards from both ATI or NVIDIA. For ATI cards, we require a 9600 XT or greater, or an X series card starting with the X700 series. Cards with greater model numbers and at least 128 MB of RAM can run the Looks engine.
For NVIDIA cards, we support the 7300 model and higher or QuadroFX 1300 and up. Cards with higher model numbers and a minimum of 128 MB of RAM can run PhotoLooks. For users working with larger images, we require that the video card have at least 256 MB of RAM. In all cases, we suggest using the latest video drivers for your graphics card.
With LooksBuilder, you can try Looks as a real-time color correction adding and removing tools without the need to worry about slowing down your workflow. LooksBuilder creates a proxy version of your image to make it quicker to work. When you click Ok, the app returns control to Photoshop and Photoshop uses the CPU exclusively to render the final image. This method allows for fast interaction for trying out presets while giving you the ability to render images of virtually unlimited size in Photoshop.
PhotoLooks runs in Adobe Photoshop only and supports the following versions.
Adobe Photoshop CS6, CS5.1, CS5, CS4
Adobe Lightroom 4, 3
Note that PhotoLooks does NOT support Photoshop Elements or other products that support the Photoshop plug-in specification.
