2 PhotoCopy

pho•to•copy (foh-tuh-kop-ee): Software that creates a photographic reproduction of a printed or graphic work made with a process in which a new image is formed by the action of proprietary image analysis, color, texture and light. Whether it's still or moving images, the key attributes are copied from one image and applied to another.

We have painstakingly analyzed the brightness, color, tone, detail, grain and texture of some of the world's greatest movies, paintings, photographs and historical photographic processes. The DNA of these masterpieces can now be applied to your very own images with PhotoCopy. The color, tone and brightness of the original work are replicated while the texture, grain and detail are simulated.

Have some images that you would like to copy and apply their attributes to other images? No problem. Just create, save and apply these custom presets to other images.

Make any picture look interesting. Good, bad, ugly—PhotoCopy doesn't care. You supply the image, we supply the secret sauce. Combine the two and create a new work of art.
