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 professionals.
