Releases Shadow Illuminator™
shadows are reality in many photos. Shadow Illuminator
is a way to deal with some of it." -- Outback
PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania– October
11, 2004 – Intrigue Technologies,
Inc., a developer of adaptive imaging sensors and
today announced the release of Shadow Illuminator™ a
software plug-in compatible with Adobe Photoshop
popular image editing software applications. Shadow Illuminator™ is
an image processing software that intelligently compensates
for illumination problems
in digital pictures. Shadow Illuminator™ is distributed
on-line at www.intrigueplugins.com.
Free trial downloads are available.
Shadow Illuminator™ patent
pending technology is based on the physics of how optical
images are formed.
Shadow Illuminator™ “looks” at the
scene content, estimates the illumination conditions,
and digitally adds lights to dark areas. Not only are
the shadows brightened, but also the details in the
shadows are enhanced as if they were properly lighted.
The Shadow Illuminator™ has
been developed to enable robots to approach the
visual capabilities of the human eye. Users will find
that the results of Shadow Illuminator™ resembles
what their eyes would see if they viewed the scene
directly instead of indirectly through a camera.
enhancement tools manipulate pixels’ intensity
and colors regardless of the image content, thus
relying on a human to determine what correction and
where needs to be done to an image," said Vladimir
Brajovic, President of Intrigue Technologies, Inc. "As
those that do this on
a daily basis know this could be a lengthy and tedious
process. Shadow Illuminator™ will save time for
both professionals and hobbyists."
