Magic Bullet Looks and still images

For some reason I haven't thought using Magic Bullet Looks for still images. Looks is primarily meant for heavy color correction in video softwares. It can easily turn your video to dream sequence or C.S.I. style flashback. But what I just noticed is that Looks includes LooksBuilder which is standalone program for manipulating stills. Only limitation is how much memory you have in graphic card. Maximum image size for my three year old iMac seemed to be 2048*2048.

So I quickly took some pictures in my home neighbourhood and used Looks for color correction and it worked perfectly. Only downside is that it's too easy to over manipulate pictures. It's just so easy and fun =D
