AKVIS Enhancer is image enhancement software that improves detail on an image, no matter what was the cause of the unsharpness. The program detects detail in underexposed, overexposed and mid tone areas of a photo with uneven exposure. It brings into focus blurred images. The program supports HDRI technology.
AKVIS Enhancer works in three modes: Enhancer, Focus, and HDRI. In the Enhancer and Focus modes you can improve a picture using one single shot; in the HDR mode you need a series of shots, but the result is impressive.
* 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 Focus mode the program improves sharpness of blurred images. It happens that the camera fails to focus on the object of shooting and it comes out unsharp. This mode can save such out-of-focus images. You can refocus the whole image or bring only certain element of the image into focus.
* In HDR mode the program combines 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.
The Enhancer and HDR modes are 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 program is available in two versions: as an independent program (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor. The plug-in version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro etc.
