AKVIS Refocus improves sharpness of out-of-focus images. The program can process the entire photo, or bring into focus only the selected part to make the subject stand out against the background.

Even if a photo looks sharp enough, there is always room for improvement. To create a special effect and draw attention to certain details, you can use selective focus.

In digital photography the selective focus technique is used to shoot portraits, macro, and close-up photographs. For this purpose, one switches to aperture mode and adjusts the settings till the subject is in focus.

The all new "Iris Blur mode" is amazing and easy to adjust to one's need by changing orientation and form.
It only seems to miss the "undo"(present in other modes).

I did try to redo the tutorial "The Gift of Flowers" on http://akvis.com/en/refocus-tutorial/examples/flowers.php with exact the same settings like recommended. My result is far away from that result-pic shown in the tutorial. If you take a closer look to their compare the akvis-result with the original unprocessed picture with 200% you clearly see, that this can't be the same pic. Tons of more details in the structure of the petals are never ever a result of a "refocus" or any other filter in the real world ;-)

I do not know which images you think but I see the difference betwenn them:
I saved both images and explored with 200% and 300% - the difference is even more visible. ;)
Actually, you write the opposite things, I do not understand what you mean.
Either you did not like the result or you mean that the result is identical the source image. If second, it's not the truth.

Also, sure that even larger copies do not have original size because they were prepared for web, resized.



This example was really made by our technical writer with AKVIS Refocus. And she used the image _larger_ x4_ than you can see on our web site.
(We bought the image on Fotolia and we can not share the full sized version.)

To get the exact same result on the same photo you need the same size.

The program is a time saver, but I am not ready to pay $39.00 for it. I think 19.95 would be more fair price.
