Bi-Color performs tone based image processing. It can simulate the effect of colored filters placed in front of a camera lens or light source - blue filters, for example, are often used to add moodiness to a scene. It can also do sepia (old-look) or other color toning, enhanced grayscale conversions, or conversion of full color images into one or two color process images such as often used to produce book covers.
The ability to define the process color range allows precise control over brightness, level compression, as well as color. R/G/B weighting can be used to isolate a color channel or individually balance them.
R/G/B weighted Bi-Colorization (positive or negative).
