Q-Research has rolled out a suite of tools to enable users to enhance and manipulate images online in real time.
VisualGenetics is a suite of Java based applets that users can license individually or internet content providers (ISPs) can license as a package. It provides image editing tools such as cropping, rotation, flipping, painting, warping, red-eye reduction, and various forms of image layering and blending.
The product was developed to consume minimum bandwidth and enables customers to enhance low resolution images viewed using their browser and to see what such changes will look like.
Users simply compare the original image with the amended image that is generated by the program, rating how much better or worse they think it is. Based on this feedback, selected enhancements are applied to the original image and saved to the server on which the image is stored.
Del Clark, president of the specialist in digital image enhancement technology, said: "VisualGenetics is designed for consumers who are looking for a quick, easy way to enhance and edit their digital images, along with the convenience and storage capacity of the internet."
