New effects & filters

Duo tone effect in new PhotoKey 8 Pro

White balance skin tones

The automatic skin tone filter first detects any faces in the image using intelligent facial recognition technology. After analyzing skin tone and ambient light, PhotoKey adjusts the hue, saturation and exposure of the entire image, giving you a more natural result.

Duo Tone

Produce striking results by superimposing one half-tone color over another. Popularized by Spotify, this effect brings out middle tones and highlights to create truly striking images.

Color vibrance

Used extensively in comic book and cosplay projects, PhotoKey’s color vibrance tools give you a rich and instant boost of hue and saturation.

Vignette exposure

This alternative vignette effect adjusts the exposure of the edges of the frame for a subtler and more natural result. Brighten your vignette to create a halo effect, or use the tool to tone down unwanted vignette in your original image.
