Enhanced - In this box you see general information about used colour
correction. To enable, disable or change correction settings please use

Color enhance options allow you to change the colors of your layers to
improve the final output. Sometimes this is the only way to get good
looking mosaic, especially when mosaic was made using limited count of
tiles in the library. You can use Color correction simultaneously
with Blending to get excellent results. Try playing with different
The Color correction option "shifts" the colors in a layer to match the
average colors of the same area in the background. This is a
similar procedure to correcting the "white balance" of an image that
you may have seen in other graphics programs. For example, it may make
the layer seem more blue, if the underlying area is quite blue. When a
high percentage of correction is used, you may lose some details from
the layer image (especially in very dark or very bright areas), but
generally this method is very effective, and can be quite subtle, even
for values of 50% and upwards.
Blend tile color option blends the output mosaic with the sampled
version of the original main theme image. At low values (between 0 and 25%), this can
drastically improve the final output image without it being too obvious
that you have cheated. Above 30% the detail in the tiles begins to be
lost in favor of the original image. This option can work extremely
well between 10% and 20% especially when combined with a Color
correction of between 20% to 50%
