1. I changed the color tints defining algorithm.
2. The effect has now the third type of action - removing color as the background.
Illustrative example. Let us suppose that we have a picture with soft edges.
Suppose that we want to change the background color to black. So will look a picture, if you use the "magic wand" tool. Soft edges are lost.
Let's use effect “cut color”. UI have new action «remove color as the background».
The result is below
Add below a new layer with a black background.
