Have you ever been so spellbound by something you see that you can hardly take your eyes off it? Maybe it’s a snow-capped mountain, an urban cityscape or a sunset over the ocean. Whatever it is, you are so fascinated by its grandeur, nuances and vibrance. Without diverting your gaze, you raise your camera and press the shutter so you can hang onto this moment forever.
But then … your excitement fades as you realize the digital version pales in comparison to the real thing. If only there was a way to make the image fully reflect your photographic vision in brilliant contrast, depth, and color.
Unlike our eyes, a camera lens can’t compensate for all the tonal values we see right in front of us. If you shoot something bright, you’ll lose all the details in the shadows, if you shoot something dark, the highlights will be blown out. You can try to correct contrast, details, and vibrancy yourself, but it’s difficult to make images pop like you want.
Thankfully, with Topaz Adjust you can give your images the soul and character you envisioned in the field.
Every eye-catching image has these three characteristics: contrast, detail and color. You’ll be hooked after trying Topaz Adjust just once — you’ll get better results in less time. It’s like having a magic genie in your digital darkroom!
Adaptive exposure allows you to balance your image’s tonal values, enhancing local contrast and dynamic range as well as recovering detail from blown out highlights or blocked up shadows.
Using more adaptive exposure will typically enhance the perceived dynamic range of your photo and make it look more “punchy”. You can modify the number of regions that the algorithm in Adjust uses to calculate local tonality. The higher the setting, the more variations in tone enhanced depth.
Detail enhancement technology analyzes your whole image to enhance small details without boosting noise. Because of this, the results are far better than a simple sharpening or local contrast adjustment.
You can create powerful images when you use this with Adjust’s adaptive exposure technology. You can control whether Adjust processes detail and exposure together or separately. Processing them together results in a gritty and grungy look, while processing them separately minimizes artifacts like halos and noise.
Adjust’s adaptive color technology gives you a way to create great color effects without overdoing it. Make your images look true to life or add HDR effects to blur the lines between reality and illusion.
Based on the same principles as its adaptive exposure technology, Adjust analyzes the entire image to determine how to enhance color in a way that would look best. Your images will have bold and striking colors, without looking “unnatural” in the way that it would if you cranked saturation to 100.
