This is one of my favourite Akvis programs and they have now added a stand-alone application that also supports the HDRI technology that allows expanding the dynamic range of an image. So apart from the excellent enhancer mode the stand-alone application supports the HDRI (High Dynamic Range Image) technology that allows expanding the dynamic range of an image. This involves taking photos of the same subject at different exposures and then opening the images in stand alone Enhancer in HDR mode and previewing the resultant image which will have been composed using the different exposures to obtain the best result. All aspects are customisable.

In enhancer mode you will be surprised at the improvement in quality in images you thought were OK, it really does what it says, it really enhances your images. Akvis also provide comprehensive tutorials on their site which are well worth a look if only to see what can be done with this software.

Excellent software again from Akvis and highly recommended. Note that the Home/plugin version does not support the HDRI mode.
