The real power of PhotoTools 2.6 is its ability to stack multiple effects, just like using multiple filters over your camera lens. You can stack up to sixteen effects on top of each other, creating your own unique look. You have complete control over the strength of each effect and can seamlessly blend them together, just like adjusting opacity in Photoshop. By stacking and combining effects, you can create an endless variety of custom effects and corrections.
PhotoTools 2.6 gives you all the control you need when you add an effect. Many effects have options that control their color or look. Every effect's strength can be controlled with the fade slider from subtle to strong. You can also use the MaskingBrush to selectively apply effects. You can paint an effect in or protect an area from being affected. The FocusBug style mask controls from FocalPoint as well. With this control, dubbed the MaskingBug, you can position effects in round or square areas quickly to create vignettes or graduated effects.
The onOne Panel in Adobe Photoshop allows you to quickly launch PhotoTools without having to navigate through Photoshop's menus. It also gives you access to your favorite presets right from the panel as well. This will save time by allowing you to apply your most frequently used effects right inside of Photoshop.
The onOne Exchange is a community website managed by onOne Software that enables users of PhotoTools 2.6 to download free presets for their own use. Presets are easily imported into PhotoTools 2.6 directly from the File menu.
