This program is designed to improve the quality of photos taken with cameraphones.

STOIK Cameraphone Enhancer uses sophisticated proprietary algorithm to analyze quality of photos and applies different sets of specially designed filters to process different types of photos. This approach guarantees that while photos with pronounced defects will be effectively corrected with powerful filtering, the good quality photos will be less affected. And the best of all, the program is fully AUTOMATIC.

Thanks to the fully automatic algorithm, the interface of the program is very simple - you have just few necessary buttons to open, save, view, zoom and pan photos, one 'Enhance' button to apply enhancement processing, buttons for Undo/Redo and for moving to next or previous image in folder.

The operation is very simple:

  1. Click Open to load photo
  2. Click 'Enhance',
  3. Click Save, and if necessary, click Next button to load next image file from the folder.

Help section of the program gives you advise on what types of photos can be enhanced with the program.

It is very important to keep in mind that program is designed to correct typical defects found in cameraphone photos. Do not use it for processing high-quality hi-res graphics and photos.

What photos can be enhanced

Cameraphones photos quite often are of poor quality and require enhancement with the use of advanced image editing and retouching software. This software usually is very complex and expensive. STOIK Cameraphone Enhancer is designed for those who has better things to do than to spend hours on filtering and manual retouching of single photo with conventional software tools (and other things to buy on the money the professional retouching software may cost you too).

This program provides automatic detection and correction of image contrast, brightness, color, white balance, and noise problems. It enhances colors of noisy images without amplification of the noise. It reduces the noise typical for photos taken with cameraphones where lens apertures are small, light exposure is insufficient, and compression levels (also leading to higher noise) are high.

Typical defects which are corrected by STOIK Cameraphone Enhancer:

Color defects:

  • low contrast;
  • color disbalance;
  • poor white balance;
  • insufficient brightness ;
  • low frequency color artifacts.

Color defects are corrected without amplification of noise.

Noise defects

  • CCD noise.
  • JPEG-induced blocking and noise amplification .
  • Moire defects such as linear noise patterns.

Noise defects are corrected without degradation of contour sharpness

... Through our partnership with Stoik Imaging, we believe we now have the premier fully automatic noise-removal technology to address this issue.
