AKVIS Software has released an update to AKVIS Enhancer, an image enhancement program that improves image detail, fixes dark, hazy, or out of focus photos, and can create HDR images. AKVIS Enhancer works in four modes: Enhancer, Focus, Smart Correction, and HDR mode. In first three modes you can improve a picture using one single shot; in the HDR mode you need a series of shots, but the result is impressive, the company says. The program is available in two versions – as an independent program (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor. Version 11.0 adds a new interface design, gains Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 / Snow Leopard / Windows 7 support, and the plug-in version now supports the Smart Filter function in Photoshop CS3 / CS4. 64-bit support has also been added to the plug-in version. Registered users of Version 10 can upgrade to Version 11 for free, while to owners of older versions, upgrades to v.10-11 are available for $29. The full price of AKVIS Enhancer is $69.
