Tutorial: AKVIS Enhancer

A poet and doves


The photo has been taken by our colleague during her stay in St.Petersburg. Her attention was drawn to the pigeons that settled down on the monument of the most renowned Russian poet Alexandre Pushkin. The pigeons made themselves comfortable using his outstretched arm as a perch. The picture came out underexposed, therefore Pushkin's figure and the cheeky pigeons form one silhouette.

We will apply AKVIS Enhancer to improve the level of detail of the photo and "separate the wheat from the chaff".

    Before Enhancer After Enhancer
  • Step 1. Open the photo in AKVIS Enhancer.
    Monument to Pushkin: Unerexposed Photo
  • Step 2. Select Improve Detail mode. The image will be processed at the default values.
  • Step 3. As the photo is dark we should clarify only the dark areas of the picture. Select one of the built-in presets or adjust the settings to your liking.
    Photo After Exposure Compensation

    After this simple correction the light areas of the photo have not changed (for example, the clouds), while the dark areas have become lighter and one can discern all the details of the monument. The tree behind the monument has become lighter and now it has a natural green color.
