AKVIS Enhancer is an image enhancement software for revealing details on a picture. Enhancer allows detecting details from underexposed, overexposed and mid tone areas of a photo without manipulating exposure. The tool is useful in cases when a photo lacks detail. For example, when a picture has been taken with the background overexposed and consequently the foreground is hardly discernible, which is especially annoying when you take a picture of a person; or when a photo lacks dramatic effect due to vagueness of the scene. If you try to reveal details in highlighted or overshadowed areas using exposure correction (for example, Levels) you run the risk of spoiling the parts of the image that you want to leave unchanged.
The idea behind Enhancer is entirely different. AKVIS Enhancer brings out details by intensifying color transition. It means that Enhancer strengthens the difference between adjacent pixels having different color gradations and therefore allows revealing not only details in the shadow but even details in the overexposed and mid tone areas.
Earlier it was possible (and such image enhancement programs exist) to achieve the same result by manipulating with 2-4 shots of the same scene. AKVIS Enhancer does it all out of one shot thanks to the advanced algorithm of photo correction. AKVIS Enhancer is useful not only for correction of family and art photos, but can be effective as well in technical use. Publishers of technical literature can apply Enhancer to show equipment illustrations in detail; doctors can use Enhancer to increase the level of detail on roentgenograms, etc. AKVIS Enhancer is a plug-in. It works under image processing programs that support plugins. It is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Photo-Paint, etc.
What's new in this version:
Fundamentally revised and reworked Improve Detail mode in AKVIS Enhancer. In this mode, the program brings out details in an image in both shadows and highlights. It is a powerful feature for strengthening detail in pictures and lightening dark photos. The new version includes an updated list of the ready to use presets created with the improved algorithm. It's now possible to import and export presets of all three modes. This feature can be used for backup and shar...
