Breathe New Life into Old Photos this Holiday Season – with Vivid-Pix Software


Vivid-Pix, a software company with a focus on photography, intends to make the Holidays a little more merry by announcing that its patented and proprietary technology is available in an easy-to-use trio of 1-click, Picture-Fix consumer software products: RESTORE, SCUBA and LAND & SEA. RESTORE is available this Holiday Season for the first time.

LAND & SEA is also available now on iTunes for GoAnywhere mobile device convenience.Each Vivid-Pix product is specifically designed to fix image defects common to a particular type of imagery: enhancing old or faded photos, underwater photography and everyday photography. All three Vivid-Pix software applications make ideal gifts during this holiday season. Especially for family tree researchers or anyone with albums or shoeboxes of treasured old photos, RESTORE makes a great gift.

LAND & SEA and SCUBA appeal to others, like serious or novice photographers, as well as people with a zest for travel whether their cameras of choice are a high-end Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) type, a cell phone, a wearable camera for adventure sports or anything in-between.All three Picture-Fix products share Vivid-Pix’s patented and proprietary image-enhancement technology that empowers users to greatly improve their photos by automatically eliminating unwanted color casts with a single-click and providing slider controls to fine-tune other enhancements as desired.

RESTORE is designed to automatically enhance color, black-and-white, and sepia faded images due to age, light, heat or humidity, which are typical of defects found in old prints and slides. RESTORE’s workflow is simple: A user selects one or more images from his or her collection, and the software presents nine color, lightness, sharpness and contrast-enhanced variations. The user then selects the one that looks best, fine-tunes as desired, and saves the improved photo.The enhanced images are saved separately from the original images, which are not altered. Saved files are ready to be printed in a photo book or sent to family or friends as an email attachment or posted to an online family tree, gallery, social media site or archived. Photo prints or slides must first be digitized, which can be done by the user or through a local retailer or mail order scanning service.

RESTORE also improves cell phone and other types of digital camera photos.SCUBA is designed specifically for dive depth photography. By applying its patented imaging technology, SCUBA eliminates the loss of contrast and color shifting that is typical of underwater photography to minimize the unwanted color effects brought about by increased dive depth, loss of light, clarity, and sharpness. Additionally, all Vivid-Pix software’s provide a convenient cropping tool to eliminate distractions and ensure that the primary subject remains the center of interest in the final image.

Combined with its ability to improve pool and snorkel photos, LAND & SEA is perfect for vacation and travel photos. Its easy-to-use 1-click improvements to ordinary, real-world photos make images look extraordinary. Even today’s best digital cameras or smartphone cameras can create pesky photographic issues like an image looking too dark or too light, colors that look wrong, an annoying tilted horizon, or tiny subjects when the subject appears too far away.

These common problems can all be corrected quickly and easily with LAND & SEA’s powerful and accessible tools, without needing to buy and learn to use the kind of complex image editing software that is used by professional photographers.LAND & SEA empowers users to control image rotation, lightness, contrast, sharpness and color correction automatically or manually. Once a user is satisfied with the image, LAND & SEA allows them to save it as a full resolution file or as a “low resolution” HD file for emailing or sharing on social media or both file sizes, easily eliminating unnecessarily large file transfers.
