Improve Detail Mode
In Improve Detail mode, the program brings out details in an image, in both shadows and highlights.
Image Correction in Improve Detail mode
(Move your mouse over the image to see the original version)
Follow the instructions below to process the image in Improve Detail mode:
- Step 1. Once this mode is selected the photo is automatically processed with the last used parameter values (the first time - with the default values). The result is shown in the After tab.
- Step 2. Adjust the value of the Preview Size parameter.
This parameter sets the image size at the preliminary processing stage and can have the following values: 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8. At value = 1, the program processes the image in its original size. At value = 1/2, it is reduced twice, at value = 1/4 by 4 times, at value = 1/8 by 8 times. The processing time is reduced accordingly.
It is an auxiliary parameter and does not influence the real size of the image. The original image (its height and width) will stay the same.
This option lets you speed up the pre-processing stage when trying different settings to obtain the best result. It is useful on photos which do not require close attention to every detail, when it is enough to see the general outcome.
Note: Once you have changed the image correction parameters, it is recommended to process the image with Preview Size = 1 to make sure that the best settings are chosen.
- Step 3. Adjust the image correction parameters. All changes are applied automatically.
