Great pictures tell stories and communicate feelings. A well chosen palette enhances those feelings and helps tell your story. We hope to provide a simple but powerful way to communicate your intent, your story. You can use ColorStream to enhance the color that you captured, then send your image to anyone you like. If you are working with any Deluxe company on a motion picture DI, send the image to your colorist.

To start using ColorStream, import images from your existing photo gallery or shoot images with your camera directly in the app. Tap an image to edit the Lift, Gamma, Gain or Saturation from the controls to your right. For finer control, double tap any color button and the entire screen will function as a work surface. Don't like your adjustments? Shake the iPad to reset your corrections.

• Import photos from your gallery, shoot with the app, or paste them from your email.
• Change lift, gamma, gain, and overall saturation to 6 digits of accuracy.
• Precise color correction using full screen mode.
• Shake and confirm to remove corrections.
• Email your images from within the app.

You can also:
• Annotate directly on your snapshots.
• Export your corrections as ASC CDL files.
• Add tags and titles to quickly sort through your project.
• Apply dozens of professional looks (iPad only).
• Preview on even more emulated displays (iPad only).

The app is free and so are the updates. We are adding curves, brightness, contrast and more. We believe a picture that is worth a thousand words has a lot of potential, have fun exploring.

What's New

So… we took a little break to work on… stuff… However, we learned very quickly that lots of you use ColorStream on your iPhone instead of your iPad, so this time we have an update for all you iPhone users out there!

• New Projects view on iPhone

Does what it's supposed to do


I don't know how else to put it. This app is simply genius.

Fantastic color tool

This is a really great tool for generating and previewing looks to give to your colorist. The workflow gives you a great way to collaborate with ongoing projects. I am most likely to use this as a photo editing app when I want a bit more control over the look. However, I only have a couple of gripes: Some documentation in the editing portion of the app would be helpful; the help widget only appears on the home screen. No undo. You must manually adjust the color and annotations. There is no way to undo a change, or revert to the original or a saved version of the project. This is a brand new app, so I'm sure changes are coming. It seems relatively stable, and being able to export multiple things at a time is AWESOME. Looking forward to seeing this get some more development.
