The “Wow! Factor”, by our newer app, is the magic combination of sharpening and smoothing that helps you add shape and personality to your images. Like our other tools, Wow! is designed for photographers who are not keen on spending hours in Photoshop, but need to raise above the crowd. Our presets already start from an advanced result, then you add your unique creative vision and style. Check out the young lady image below. See the improvement of shape, nostrils, mouth.

Wow! Tonal Equalizer.
Powerful. Sophisticated. Easy
Any image is made of fine detail and coarser areas. Controlling these is the key to the winning look which has “The Wow! Factor”; traditional sharpening, for instance, adds detail. But what if you need to remove detail at a certain scale? In the unique Wow! panel, you can do it through five dedicated sliders whose values can be either positive or negative. A few more intuitive controls like opacity and preview are all you’re ever going to need.
