Elpical launches version 11 of Claro

Elpical Software consistently focus on bringing improved image analysis and quality enhancements. Claro v11 is a testament to that dedication!


New and improved functionality includes:

Portrait recognition
In version 11 Claro is able to classify portrait images as such. This leads to optimised skin-tone treatment and adjustments in noise filtering and local contrast for highlights, leading to better portraits.

Banding removal
Claro now detects and removes banding issues in blue skies that may occur in heavily compressed images.

JPEG compression artefacts
Claro offers new and improved detection and removal of various types of JPEG artefacts.

Improved exposure correction
Claro has improved detection of under and over exposed images and offers an even higher success rate in correcting these problems.

Added localised treatment of key areas in images
Claro offers more controls to include or exclude certain areas in images like skin tones and blue skies to algorithms like the local contrast for highlights feature and the colour filter.

New plugin for Adobe InDesign
The new plugin offers the ability to enhance images inside InDesign documents. The plugin identifies the size of the picture box and the visible area of the images and takes this into account. The enhanced images fit exactly into the picture box at the exact resolution. The new plugin offers enhanced user experience and allows documents to be closed while images are in process.

Newsrooms will love this!
If a major news event occurs, newsrooms will have the ability to tag images shot within a specified range of the location where the event took place. Especially with user generated content coming into the newsroom, it is a huge benefit to be able to immediately identify images shot within a certain proximity of the event.

IT departments will love this!
The new installers of both the Claro server (Windows and Mac OS X) as well as the InDesign plugin and Photoshop Inspector are completely independent of pre-installed runtime environments.

Claro 11 is immediately available. Please contact Workflowz for more information.
