Akvis has released Version 5.5 of Akvis Magnifier. Available as a plug-in or a standalone program, the software is claimed to “deliver good results” when ‘uprezzing’ a photo to create poster-sized enlargements. “Resizing pictures with Akvis Magnifier yields a much higher quality image than simple bicubic interpolation,” the company says. Version 5.5 adds compatibility with the upcoming Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop Elements 11 (plug-in version), fixes a bug which caused the program to crash when using the graphics processing unit on a computer running MacOS X Lion 10.7.3, and improves colour processing when loading raw images. Registered users of Magnifier can update their version free of charge.
