|LaserSoft Imaging AG releases SilverFast 6 with SRD™, a unique Scratch and Dust Removal Function for scanned images.|
Kiel, Germany, 12th of August 2002
LaserSoft Imaging now incorporates SilverFast SRD™, an advanced scratch and dust removal function, into its award-winning SilverFast scanning and image enhancement software product line. SRD™ provides users with the capability to easily remove dust and scratches from images either during scanning or from scanned raw data files. Unlike other scratch and dust removal products, SRD™ works with black and white images as well as colour image files. A real-time preview permits users to determine the best possible setting for removing scratch and dust artefacts. SRD™ will be integrated into all versions of SilverFast 6 including SilverFast Ai, SilverFast HDR and SilverFast SE.
Other features of SilverFast 6 include Selective Colour Correction with Multi-Layers and Masking for handling complex images, ACR™, known as Adaptive Colour Restoration, to bring back faded or normalize over-saturated colours, SC2G™ a sophisticated function for converting colour images to greyscale, and GANE™ a tool for eliminating grain and noise while preserving image detail.
In addition to these exciting new features, SilverFast has implemented a new help system utilizing Apple QuickTime® movies. The movies let users visualize how corrections can be applied to an image. Besides an introductory QuickTime® movie each main dialog has it's own instructional QuickTime® movie that can be called while inside a dialog. "For the first time, a large 1:1 sized movie is exactly where the user needs it: inside the respective dialog" says Karl-Heinz Zahorsky, President & Founder of LaserSoft Imaging. SilverFast 6 will be available after the 16th of August 2002. Demo-versions and upgrades can be downloaded from http://www.SilverFast.com.
