Image enhancement

Auto Image Enhancement makes various adjustments to the image data to visually enhance the image.

Key image enhancement steps include exposure and color cast correction , which change the brightness and color throughout the image. In the exposure it comes to light as well as underexposed images that more details are visible. The color cast correction comes into play when, for example, a picture taken with artificial light and therefore has a strong yellow cast. Well exposed images with good white balance need less corrections accordingly.

After these so-called global corrections, follow local image adjustments. For example, dark areas of the image and shadows in the image are lighter and make faces more visible against the light. Similarly, very bright image areas as well as white clouds are darkened a small more pleasant. Finally, the sharpness of image can still be adjusted depending on the image area.

Depending on the image class, further image enhancement steps may be taken, such as the automatic correction of red-eye or the removal of noise in images taken with high sensitivity. 

Although many corrections are also a matter of personal taste, for example, exposure and color cast correction, as well as shadow lightening, in most cases result in a significant improvement of many images.

For example, if you create photo book , we recommend that you always turn off automatic image enhancement on edited images.


Self-made PNGs

If you use PNGs that you have created and are using transparency, we recommend that you always turn off image enhancement.
