Review

Despite its name, SHARPEN projects professional can do much more for your photo collection than just making your pictures look sharper and crisper. It is capable not only of performing automatic selective processes that will make certain details look sharper while preserving the necessary smoothness and natural touch required for others, but also of letting you enhance your photos manually with a whole set of color, blur, sensor, and white balance correction tools.

Instead of just sharpening the entire image in a linear way, the program’s algorithms and profiles will apply the right amount of sharpness to those elements that do need it, while leaving others untouched. This is what sets SHARPEN projects professional apart from the many sharpening and enhancing tools available in the market. It analyses every picture separately, and by studying each pixel and those around it, decides which elements will be sharpened and to what extent. In the end, it is this combination of different levels of sharpness and smoothness that makes a picture stand out from the rest. Besides, this new version of the program has incorporated a new algorithm that will turn all your blurry pictures into stunningly clear images in a snap, helping you recover those pictures you discarded in the past for not being crisp enough. Known as “Adaptive Multi-scale Deconvolution”, this correction algorithm analyses the closest 100 pixels around each pixel in order to decide the level of sharpness to be applied. more
