Asiva Photo is a vector-based digital image enhancement program featuring 16-bit per component processing and output for all corrections or effects. By vector-based we mean that all corrections are saved as digital instructions, as well as working on a scaled image if memory is insufficient.
All 16-bit per component processing gives you 256 times the bandwidth and precision of 8-bit.Make corrections, enhancements and apply filters precisely, without time-consuming masks.Control how filters (Operations) are applied to and image using adjustable maps (curves) on the Hue, Saturation and Luminance components. Set an Operation's roll-off on the maps so the effect appears completely natural. Blend colors gradually into one another.Organize and arrange your Operations in an Operation Sequence.Turn Operations on and off at will for instant comparison. Change the order of Operations in a Sequence and save your Sequence or Operation(s) independently of the source image. Use them on any other image or for archival purposes.Multiple ways to apply any operation: globally, regionally with a rectangle or ellipse tool, or by using the powerful brush tool to apply pixel-accurate effects. All Operations can be removed in any combination with these tools.Work with a proxy image and render your corrections to the final full-resolution image only when your creative work is done. This allows you to work quickly and see changes almost instantly in the process.All Operations are saved or stored as vector-based sets of instructions. You don't have to worry about loss of resolution when applying the same Operation or Sequence of Operations to different sized images.
What's new in this version:
Additions and Corrections Found in Version 1.3.4: Image input window sizing and location have been fixed for both Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and Mac OS 9.2.2. The most severe problem was under Panther, where the image window appeared underneath the main menu bar and could not be moved. Although not really a problem, size and positioning have been optimized for 9.2.2 as well.Additions and Corrections Found in Version 1.3.3: Fixed color inconsistency problems for
