Akvis Software has released Akvis Enhancer 9.5 for Mac and Windows
systems. The program allows improving detail on an image, no matter
what was the cause of the unsharpness. The standalone version
supports HDRI technology.

The new release supports Exif data (the data registered by the camera
when shooting, e.g. the date, the settings, etc.) and ensures that
these data won’t get lost after the processing. The software offers
three modes.

In Enhancer mode the program brings out details on one single shot by
intensifying color transition. The Focus mode improves blurred images
by bringing into focus the whole image or only certain parts of it.

The HDR mode is only available in the Standalone version of Enhancer.
The HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging) technology expands the dynamic
range of an image and shows details in both shadows and highlights.

Akvis Enhancer is available in two versions — as a standalone
application and as a plug-in to a photo editor. The plug-in version
of Enhancer has only Enhancer and Focus modes. It supports Photoshop
batch processing that allows applying the same settings to a series
of images. The plug-in version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop,
Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo, Photo-Paint,
PhotoImpact, etc.

For a free trial, AKVIS offers 10 days of fully functional use.
Details are available at the Akvis web site (http://www.akvis.com).
Akvis Enhancer runs on Mac OS X 10.4.9 and higher and Microsoft
Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista.

AKVIS Enhancer Plugin sells for US$69 USD. Enhancer Standalone with
HDRI support sells for $81. The program also comes bundled with
AKVIS Noise Buster (noise reduction software) with a discount of $35/
