The debian-l10n-english mailing list is more suitable for this
purpose, indeed.

There are a few things to (imho) fix:
- leading capital in the synopsis (discouraged)
- too long synopsis
- make sentences
- avoid adressing users ("you")
- use of en_US
- double spaces after sentence dots
- slightly lower the "advertisment style" of the second sentence and
avoid comparing with other tools

Here is what I come with as of now (dunno what "hue" is...a typo?)

Description: photo filter for saturation control and color effects
 This package provides a tool for selective color, saturation and hue
 shift photo adjustments. 
 One of the unique feature of Tintii is being able to automatically
 detect the major colors in a photo, making adjustments quicker and
 easier than manual adjustments.
