Thank you for your review
Hecta is an app for OS X which magnifies photographs without pixelation or blur. Photographers, designers, journalists -- and you -- can zoom in on the smallest detail with clarity and precision. Hecta uses a unique algorithm to magnify your photographs, called the Whittaker-Shannon interpolation formula. This is the formula commonly used in the field of satellite imaging. Other image editing software, including iPhoto, use algorithms known as polynomial interpolation -- which results in pixelated, blurry images.
