Plug-in for automatic photo restoration
The AKVIS RetoucherThe AKVIS Retoucher image processing plug-in restores damaged photographs to optimal condition with minimal effort and amazing results. Surface defects such as scratches, water spots, flakes and stains can be removed automatically, without the time-consuming aspects of manual editing. Moreover, the software is able to reconstruct the lacking parts of the photo using the information of the surrounding areas. You can restore a torn photo or a photo with some parts missing.
AKVIS Retoucher is a handy tool for improving the composition of your photos. You can remove date stamps, logos, small irrelevant details (wires, refuse bins, etc). If you need to increase the canvas size (from one side or proportionally) to bring the main object into focus, i.e. to center it, AKVIS Retoucher will help you to extend image patterns to the blank areas of the canvas.
Polygraphists will find AKVIS Retoucher useful in doing the prepress processing job. They often have the problem of growing the borders of a layout that does not have space for cropping. AKVIS Retoucher saves much time by doing this quickly and efficiently. The application is very straightforward and can be used by any amateur photographer who has never performed retouching/image restoration before. The program comes with a game-like tutorial, so any person can master the program within minutes. The new version supports 16 bits/channel.
AKVIS Retoucher 2.1 is available as a Windows plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Photo-Paint, Jasc Paint Shop Pro, Ulead Photoimpact, Picture Publisher pro and other digital imaging software that supports third-party plugins. The software works under Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP, NT and Mac OS X.
