Akvis Enhancer has been updated to version 7.0 improving detail in underexposed, overexposed and mid-tone areas of a photo. The new version also offers HDRI support to allow expansion of the dynamic range of an image.
Akvis Enhancer 7.0 is available as a stand-alone application and as a Photoshop plug-in. Customers with the Home License for Enhancer plug-in can update it for free. To be able to use the stand-alone version with HDRI technology, the Home users can upgrade to Deluxe license, the Business users to new Business license.
Akvis says Enhancer 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 company adds that 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.
It can be downloaded for free and tried for ten days; $69 to purchase.
