Image enhancement, patent identification

Post Posted: Wed Mar 08, 2017 1:16 am

Hello friends, I am working with images trying to improve the magnification and quality, question apart from photoshop, is there something not so expensive that I can use?

> trying to improve the magnification and quality

It doesn't work like it does in the movies.

X-Files had it right however.

Enhance <click> Enhance <click> Enhance <click>
And I have heard agencies say the solution was just a bigger monitor.


But for real,
Pretty all the image enhancement software I know of is paralleled with Photoshop.

Ocean Systems dTective
Foray

I played around with Starwitness Editor. Its a bit more technical and processing workflow based.


Photoshop now is subscription based. Like $20 to $80 a month depending on the license and package.



But video/image enhancement, you can only work with what you got. Sure you can smooth out the pixilation and adjust levels to make it more intelligible. But scaling an image will scale the individual pixels as well.

You always want the original format if possible. Work in a Lossless and no compression workflow. Retain an original copy of the image or video.
