Perm, Russian Federation (PressExposure) May 15, 2007 -- If one takes a photo of a black cat in a dark room the result can be far from ideal. Or if you make a photo of a beautiful view but the automatic settings focus on the sky and the shot comes out with uneven exposure â the sky is beautiful but the scenery is underexposed and one can hardly understand what is on. With the standard tools of exposure correction you run the risk of spoiling the parts of the image that were good.
AKVIS Enhancer is image enhancement software that improves detail in underexposed, overexposed and mid tone areas of a photo. The program has an individual approach to every part of the photo; it intensifies the difference between adjacent pixels having different color gradations and treats every part individually. Other similar programs may achieve acceptable results by manipulating two to four shots of the same scene; AKVIS Enhancer applies advanced algorithms to a single shot for spectacular outcome.
Most images can be improved at default settings. For further adjustment you have four parameters at your disposal: Details in Shadows, Details in Highlights, Level of Detail and Lightness.
The program offers batch mode that allows improving a series of photos automatically. Batch processing is time saving when you have to correct a number of photos taken with the same camera settings in similar circumstances.
By popular request in version 6.0 the possibility to save user presets has been added. Besides, new to version 6.0: compatibility with Photoshop CS3 on Intel Mac, compatibility with Windows Vista, added new interface language - Italian.
The update for registered users is free. The users who tried the previous version of the plug-in and have their version expired, now have an opportunity to test the software again.
For a free trial, AKVIS offers 10 days of fully functional use. Details are available at http://akvis.com/en/enhancer/download-photo-enhancement.php
