If you take 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 - 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. But AKVIS Enhancer offers an individual approach to every part of the photo. AKVIS Enhancer is image enhancement software that detects detail in underexposed, overexposed and mid tone areas of a photo. Starting with version 7.0, the program supports HDRI technology. AKVIS Enhancer works in two modes: Enhancer and HDRI. In the Enhancer mode you can improve a picture using one single shot; in the HDR mode (only for the standalone edition!) you need a series of shots, but the result is impressing. In Enhancer mode the program brings out details on one single shot 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. In HDR mode one needs to combine a series of images to get one HDR picture. This technology allows expanding the dynamic range of an image and shows details in both shadows and highlights. Read more about HDRI. The tool is useful in cases when a photo has an uneven exposure. 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. The tool 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. The program is available in two versions ? as an independent program (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor. The Batch mode support available in the plug-in version allows you to automatically process a series of images. Just create an Action in Photoshop and apply the plug-in with the same settings to a folder full of images. It saves you time! The plug-in version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro etc.
