Photo-D Solutions: An Overview
Photo-D is a comprehensive, rule-based Intelligent Expert System (IES)
that automatically optimizes and enhances digital image files,
preparing them for printing or viewing. Using sophisticated
fuzzy logic and artificial
intelligence (AI) algorithms, Photo-D, in effect, emulates
the decision-making expertise of a traditional colour expert, or
digital imaging professional, to analyse, correct and produce
high-quality image files. From these files, anyone from a
photo lab technician to a photo hobbyist; from a publishing house to a
minilab at the corner drug store can create exceptional
images that are accurate in every way.
Photo-D software acquires sets of photos and analyses them as a
human graphic arts expert would. Photo-D looks
for problems associated with under- or over-exposure, contrast,
brightness, colour and details, and then corrects the problems
automatically to obtain optimal, quality results. Red-eye can be
corrected to natural eye colour automatically. The original and
corrected photos are then displayed side.
Photo-D eliminates infinite man-hours spent
fixing images in Photoshop or other image editing
programs. It is an affordable technology built by a former chief colour
scientist at Scitex; so its applicability to graphic arts workflows, in
particular, is extremely high.
The technology gives digital photography professionals, designers, and
prepress professionals in the digital imaging and graphic arts markets
a sophisticated, high volume, automatic digital image correction
solution that not only speeds up processing, but also makes more
digital pictures useable with just a click of the mouse.
With workflow capabilities such as predefined Hot Folders, and quick
production of thousands of pictures per hour that is customizable to
fit users needs, Photo-D is a user-friendly solution for
