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.

Features:

  • Clear magnification.
  • No pixelation.
  • No more...

Requirements

OS X 10.7 or later

I'm very disappointed with this app. I cannot get it to stay installed. I installed it once and now it has disappeared.

When I did have it open I was unable to get to an image to work on it. There is no "drag and drop" feature - which is what I had expected. Meanwhile, it should have stayed installed and I can't find it in the downloads as it came in under a numerical assignment and not by its title.

As far as I am concerned this app needs a lot more thought.

joseph: The app is not intneded to teach you how to navigate the operating system!!!!it's just an app to enlarge photos ,you should learn that on you own,why don't you concentrate on how to operate your computer forst before you start downloading software???it makes sens???no???

Isn't that called "zooming" in iPhoto and everything else...? Because that's what it looks like on the website - the one with no information and one hugely informative testimonial: "Whoa", apparently uttered by an actor.
