Capturing a REALLY SHARP digital image depends on the following...
a) A high quality lens with minimum optical aberration and defects.
b) A fast shutter speed to combat camera shake.
c) Able to focus accurately on your intended subject.
However, sometime; you thought that you have fulfilled all those three requirements BUT your picture still look "a little soft". Especially when you view it at 100%!
Let us examine those three conditions again...
a) 99.99% of photographers, including you and me, CANNOT afford a $4,000 lens with minimum optical aberration and defects. Most of us use the kit lens, at less than $300, you get what you pay for ;)
b) Fast shutter speeds? No problem, or we can use a tripod!
c) With modern digital camera, accurate focussing is a given.
To counter condition a), enter PICCURE+
According to them...
"piccure+ is a new software program capable of correcting optical aberrations that cause a lack of sharpness in your images. With piccure+, it is possible to recover much sharper images."
Sound very impressive and being one of the "tester" in the last few months, I find the software impressive too. How come, then, they were getting some negative feed back after last week's launch?
I decided to give piccure+ another go, to find out once and for all if it is a good image sharpener.
