AKVIS Retoucher is an efficient program for photo restoration and photo retouching. Retoucher not only removes dust, scratches, stains and other defects that appear on damaged photos but is also able to reconstruct missing parts of a photo using the information of the surrounding areas.

The work is done automatically; you only have to indicate areas to be restored, push the button, and there you are – the surface becomes smooth and imperfections disappear. It looks like magic when you observe the scratches vanishing before your very eyes.

Retoucher is also a handy tool for improving photo composition. It is possible to remove date stamps, small irrelevant details (wires, refuse bins, etc) and even bigger objects (i.e. people who entered the shot by accident, cars in the background, etc.). If you need to increase the canvas size (from one side or proportionally) to bring the main object into focus, i.e. to center it, Retoucher will help you to extend image patterns to the blank areas of the canvas.

Polygraphists will find Retoucher useful in doing the prepress processing job. They often have a problem with extending the borders of a layout that does not have space for cropping. Retoucher saves much time by doing this quickly and efficiently.

Use Retoucher for the following purposes:

•Restoring old and damaged photos from your family archive by removing scratches, stains and other defects;
•Improving the composition of your photos by removing the date stamp, distracting details (wires, refuse bins, etc.) and by extending the photo canvas (increase the image canvas and the plug-in will recreate the image patterns in the blank areas)
•Reconstructing missing parts of the photo (restoring a torn photo, extending the borders of a layout that does not have space for cropping).

Retoucher is available as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin for a photo editor. The functionality of the program depends on the license type.
