Akvis Enhancer 1.2

Plug-in helps enhance detail without manipulating exposure

Big Picture
Akvis has released Enhancer 1.2, detail-enhancement plug-in compatible with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Corel Painter and PhotoPaint, and others. The software brings out details by strengthening the difference between adjacent pixels have different color gradations, revealing more details in the shadow areas as well as in the mid-tone areas and any overexposed areas.

The plug-in is available for both Mac OS X and Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/NT. Price: $69, downloadable directly from the company.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Akvis was founded in 2004. In addition to Ehancer, the company offers Retoucher image-restoration software, Chameleon image-combination software, and Stamp photo-retouching software. (Akvis: www.akvis.com)
