Photomizer - Image editing of the next generation - Engelmann Media turns lousy pictures into excellent photos

(MMD Newswire) July 31, 2009 -- Photomizer is the fully automatic photo studio for the trouser pocket. The small program is a sly dog when it comes to pixels. It analyzes digital photos, which quite often show wrong colours, faulty exposure and insufficient definition. Afterwards the photo is "photomized" - and immediately gains in quality, definition and luminosity. This picture optimization for everyone can likewise be used in batch mode.

Annoying, tiresome, makes you tear your hair: even expensive digital cameras are often not able to capture reality 1:1 on a photo. Sometimes the default settings of the camera are not suitable, sometimes the wrong aperture is used. When viewing the photos back at home you nearly faint time and again. The ocean is no longer green but grey. Blue skies look as if it is going to rain and anyway, there is a fog on all subjects, which cannot be removed with the standard tools. Many users try to improve the photos with the slide control of a run-of-the-mill image editing, but actually make them worse. In the end, completely botched photos of important moments are in the recycle bin of the computer.

No question, you need a pro. Photomizer 1.0 of Engelmann Media knows all about the weaknesses of digital photography.

Tim Stoepler of Engelmann Media GmbH: "The Photomizer tries to reconstruct the picture that the photographer saw when he took the photo. And in fact, it works. After optimization with the program, users often report that the photo now exactly portrays the situation as they have stored it in their memory."

Photomizer 1.0: Feed per drag and drop, reap in batch mode

You only have to feed the program with your own photo files, import them per drag and drop to the program view and then you can start. The photos are fully automatically optimized. False exposures are adjusted, colours corrected and shades are lighted up. The program recognizes the important parts of a subject and uses its intelligence to light up and optimize faces for example. This means: not the whole photo is changed but only those image attributes, which require editing and disturb the perfect overall impression

When storing the optimized photos, the user determines target format, resolution and the required computation algorithm. It goes without saying that the target folder too, can be determined. If you want, you can rotate single photos.

Photomizer 1.0: Scaling for the picture frame

Photomizer - besides its exclusive filters for picture optimization - provides some additional functions that are no less impressive, unusual and innovative.

Very innovative for instance is the scaling optimizer. It is able to adjust the resolution of your photos so that they fit perfectly into a hardware picture frame. Normally, the photos are simply forced into the frame resolution and black bars are added to the sides if the picture does not "fit". The scaling optimizer can calculate the photos without black bars. Missing picture information is simply created anew and the technique also works for photos that are to be shown on TV. Pictures can be calculated up to a cinema resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels.

Some of the most important program functions:

- Automatic object recognition: manipulates only those image parts, which help optimize the overall impression!
- Fully automatic re-adjustment of tonality!
- Fully automatic re-sharpening!
- Fully automatic contrast optimization!
- Touching-up of image through higher definition!
- Colour-intensive photos through re-sharpening of matt colours!
- Manipulation of colours to get more cheerful images!
- Fully automatic system for hue control and saturation!
- Fully automatic system for white balance.
- Fully automatic system for bright/dark correction.
- Elimination of fog and other weather influences.
- Elimination of undesired colour casts.
- Supported output formats: JPG and BMP
- Fully automatic batch mode for manipulation of picture series!
- Additional option for manual image optimization of each picture!
- Reading of EXIF and GEO data from pictures

The Photomizer works generally non-destructive: The original pictures will be not touched at all! All files will be save using different filenames!

Seeing is believing - even more in photography. Test the Photomizer with your own images of e.g. blurred or foggy landscapes, photos that were taken in the snow or when diving, scanned old slides and be surprised.
