Lobster 2.4

Separate colour and Tone.
Total control.

Get inside your images
Lobster works in Adobe Photoshop™ to divide your RGB file into 4 separate layers of Luminosity (or Tonality) and Chromaticity.

This gives you unprecedented accuracy and flexibility when editing RGB files in many different areas. Please read Exercises in Curves to verify this.

Lobster’s four unique layers allow you to “divide and conquer” your RGB image editing in ways you may have never seen before.

Make Photoshop Sing
Lobster extends and fine tunes the use of many of Adobe Photoshop's most important image editing tools as they interact with your RGB files.
Lobster's power ranges from providing 100% accuracy (RGB Curves and Levels) to new options for colour editing.
If you believe you can already achieve these things without Lobster, Main Features of Lobster will help explain!

Total Control, It's Your Image
The composite RGB values of the Lobster layers remain the EXACTLY the same as your original - until you begin your Luminosity and Chromaticity editing.
This claim can be verified by readings from the Info palette set to 8 bit per channel readout.
This is true for even the brightest and most saturated of RGB values – you should attempt to verify this on any other product that claims to duplicate Lobster. We have not found one yet!
Please note Lobster works with 8 and 16 bit RGB files only.
