Feb 26, 2013 — AKVIS announces the release of AKVIS Refocus v.3.0 for Windows and Macintosh. The software improves sharpness of out of focus images. Version 3.0 offers brand new image processing modes Tilt-Shift and Iris Blur. Now it's possible to add lens blur effects to your photos!
Digital cameras are a good companion for capturing everyday moments - they are handy and offer automatic settings that save you time. However, sometimes the camera fails to focus on the subject automatically and it comes out unsharp. AKVIS Refocus will take care of such images.
The software improves sharpness of out of focus images. The program can process the entire photo or bring into focus only the selected part to make the subject stand out against the background.
Now it's also possible to add bokeh and lens blur effects to your photos!
The software keeps up-to-date on cutting edge technologies and offers brand new image processing modes Tilt-Shift and Iris Blur.
The features of the previous versions are now available in the Refocus mode.
AKVIS Refocus v.3.0 works in three modes:
Refocus mode makes blurred photos sharp and clear. You can re-focus the entire image or only selected parts.
Even if a photo looks sharp enough, there is always room for improvement. To draw attention to certain details, it's possible to use selective focus. Using special tools you can separate the subject from the background; to achieve a more realistic selective focus effect you can sharpen one part of the photo and blur the rest.
Also, in the new version:
Registered users of Refocus can upgrade to version 3.0 for free by downloading and installing the new version.
AKVIS Refocus runs on Windows XP/Vista/Win7/Win 8 and on Mac OS X 10.4-10.8, both 32 bit and 64 bit. The software can be used as a standalone program and as a plug-in to image editors. The plugin edition is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro, etc.
AKVIS Refocus sells for $ 39 USD at akvis.com.
