I would like to have a chance to add to mostly all colour correction filters switcher to light/mid/dark area. The nice try in color balance tool and selective collor. The same should be done for saturation, vibration, brighness/contrast and etc. It's provide more powerful control.

What do you mean by which product?

I'm using Photoshop and PhotoLooks plugin. They have wonderful tone with a 3 color regulators for low, mid and hi colors range. I think it's a really cool to be able to do the same for Vibrance (if I want to apply it only to the mid tones) or to Hue/Saturation (if I want to shift only bright area). It's really needed. I do some post effects and some time I need to shift color or desaturate only dark area. I can do thousand clicks or just by select "Shadow" in HUE/Saturation filter.

You do know that you can use layer masks (included those calculated by the color range option in the mask properties panel) to limit the effect of your adjustment layers, right?
