AKVIS Refocus improves sharpness of out-of-focus images. The program can process the entire photo, or bring into focus only the selected part to make the subject stand out against the background.
Even if a photo looks sharp enough, there is always room for improvement. To create a special effect and draw attention to certain details, you can use selective focus.
In digital photography the selective focus technique is used to shoot portraits, macro, and close-up photographs. For this purpose, one switches to aperture mode and adjusts the settings till the subject is in focus.
In AKVIS Refocus you can use two pencils to separate the subject from the background and adjust the settings to get the selective focus effect. There are also AKVIS presets which provide different degrees of sharpness.
To achieve a more realistic selective focus effect, you can sharpen one part of the photo and blur the rest. The Defocus feature that allows blurring the background is available only for Home Deluxe and Business licenses.
AKVIS Refocus is also helpful with landscape photos. When shooting an object or a landscape at a distance, you may notice that the picture looks hazy. AKVIS Refocus will make the photo more distinct and thus more impressive.
AKVIS Refocus is available in two versions - as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin to a photo editor.
