PercepTool 3

Working with the nine filters individually or in combination gives us a process for re-creating that original perception of light. The 47-page instruction manual is comprehensive, well written, and illustrates the process for each filter. It’s best used while simultaneously working with your images. A help guide is also available within each filter. PercepTool works on both color and black-and-white files.
