Load & Apply Channels

From any colorspace: on the fly and at warp speed!
Say that you're working with an RGB and you need to load the a channel from Lab for a Layer Mask. It's just one click away.

Channels and Masks Preview

CPT can render a preview of the channels from all colorspaces at the same time, either creating a separate contact-sheet like document, or with a full screen preview of each single channel - and their effect on masks.

Up to 32 Channels

At your fingertips, without the need of duplicating/converting, channels from:

  • RGB
  • CMYK (Default + Dan Margulis’ Bogus Black w/ 3 GCR choices)
  • Lab
  • HSB

... and their inverse!
