First Look: Nik Viveza


This display shows the values of the Control Point currently selected in the list above.


Use this button to replace the color being controlled by a selected Control Point with another color of your choosing. This makes quick work of changing the color of your subject's clothing, for example.


Use the Loupe to view close-ups of any area of the image. The Loupe tracks your cursor position.


If you'd like to use the Photoshop Brush tool to further refine the edges of your adjustments, click Brush instead of OK. Viveza returns you to Photoshop with its adjustments on a new layer, with a layer mask that you can use as you would normally in Photoshop.
