Tutorial: AKVIS Enhancer

Show Detail in Shadows


The author of the example is Sanjeev Saha, New Delhi, India. He writes:

AKVIS Enhancer improves an image and gives a new look to a snap taken in the dark or without flash. It seems that the only right decision is to move your dark photos to the trash. But do not hurry! Let's try to improve them.

Here are some photos which the author picked from (photos sharing site). The result after using AKVIS Enhancer impressed him. None of the photo editor's tools can perform the same result.

  • Step 1. Open this image in your photo editor. The author used AliveColors.

    You can use the plugin with any other compatible image editor or take the standalone version of Enhancer which can be used independently.

    You see nothing except the shadows and the window.

    So let’s use AKVIS Enhancer to see how this photo can be improved.

  • Step 2. Call AKVIS Enhancer from the main menu of the photo editor (Effects -> AKVIS -> Enhancer).
  • Step 3. Set the values of the parameters of Improve Detail mode.
  • Step 4. Press the button to apply the result.

    You can see the difference between these two images!
