Hour 19. Photoshop Plug-Ins and Add-Ons > Vivid Details Test Strip

Vivid Details Test Strip

If you really like tweaking colors, Vivid Details Test Strip is the plug-in you'll enjoy most of all. Like Intellihance, it's used for color correction. But Test Strip allows, in fact demands, that you be the judge of when the color's right. When you open Test Strip, you'll see a window like the one shown in Figure 19.18.

Much like a photographer's test strip from the darkroom, Test Strip gives you samples of your image with various kinds of corrections applied. Color Balance comes first. You can use the slider to adjust the amount of color added or subtracted. Click the version that looks right, and move on to the next setting, which lets you change the amount of a single color within the photo. Too red? Take out a percent or two, adjust Brightness and Contrast, and finally change the saturation, if you like one of the options. The final choice on the Test Strip tool bar lets you see before and after versions of your picture, so you can see how much of a change you've made before you click the button to apply it.
