AKVIS Magnifier allows resizing images without loss in quality. Whether creating poster-size images or adding resolution for a better printing quality, the program will make your enlarged image look crisp and clear!
AKVIS Magnifier is an efficient tool for increasing image resolution. If you attempt to blow up a picture (increase its resolution) using the standard Resize command of a photo editor, you will notice that the resulting photo is blurred and pixelated. The reason is that the input photo didn’t contain enough information for the new size. Magnifier will cope with this problem and deliver good results!
Resizing pictures with Magnifier yields a much higher quality than simple bicubic interpolation. Depending on particular needs, the software can be adjusted to produce images that look exactly as required for a given purpose. The program allows enlarging an image to a super-high resolution of up to 300,000 x 300,000 pixels, making a 90 gigapixel poster!
Featuring advanced resizing algorithms, Magnifier enlarges digital pictures to super-high resolution for producing stunning wall-sized prints. The algorithm keeps edges smooth, sharp and clearly defined, while improving image appearance by removing unwanted noise and compression artifacts.
AKVIS Magnifier makes it easy for anyone to produce professional-looking photos. It is easily configurable and allows fine-tuning the resulting image. You can apply the program to enlarge images taken from Internet or photos taken with a low-resolution camera, or a post-crop result.
The image processing parameters are grouped in two sections: Downsize and Upsize. The parameters become active accordingly the desired image size. When resizing an image, the program restores edges and details, removes artifacts.
The software supports Batch Processing that lets you automatically resize a series of photos. You can apply the program with the same settings to a folder full of images.
This photo resizing software is available in two editions: as a standalone program and as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.
To call the Magnifier plugin in Photoshop select the menu item File -> Automate -> AKVIS Magnifier.
