Selective Adjustment Using U Point Control Points
One example of a third-party selective correction tool is the Viveza Photoshop plug-in manufactured by Nik Software . This program is based on the U Point technology used by Nikon in its Capture NX RAW editor, and by Nik in its own Color Efex, Silver Efex, and Nik Sharpener Pro tools.
