Home Photo Studio 2.15: Now Featuring HDR-Like Effect!

February 24, 2010: AMS Software announces the release of a new version of Home Photo Studio, a convenient program for creative photo enhancement. Besides ample opportunities for photo editing, creating original greeting cards and decorating ordinary pictures with the help of numerous frames, tools, masks, filters and effects (such as 3D and plastic effects), Home Photo Studio 2.15 now supports unique HDR-like (High Dynamic Range) effect, which makes digital images really vivid and impressive.

Home Photo Studio was originally developed for uncomplicated photo editing, and, though new advanced features are constantly added, the program always remains easy-to-use and convenient. As for its effects and filters, they are easy to apply and produce the result instantly, changing a common picture beyond recognition and making it special.

Among the recently added features there is one-picture High Dynamic Range effect, a remarkable feature for producing an HDR-like image from a single photo. Usually an HDR image requires two pictures of the same object or landscape with different luminance; and creation of such an image involves time, skill and professional photo editing software.

Home Photo Studio is used by most users for creating original greeting cards, as the number of templates, frames and clipart images is quite extraordinary. Besides, effects and filters give free play to imagination and ensure creative photo enhancement: the user can add natural phenomena (such as stars, clouds, rain, snow and lightning), noise and blur, stylize a picture (ancient photo effect, pencil drawing, lithograph, etc.), adjust brightness and saturation and make complex combinations. The transparence of the effects can be adjusted, as well as the area to be processed (the top, the bottom, the center, the borders, etc.).

By the way, the Deluxe edition of Home Photo Studio is rich with extra advanced features: creation of 3D compositions, automatic creation of collages, plastic effects and import of PNG / Photoshop™ templates.
