What Can Perfectly Clear Do?

The corrections that make every photo Perfectly Clear… since 2001

Automatic intelligent photo correction

Businesses love the way our corrections perfect photos automatically— but you’re in control of which corrections you run and how.

You can use one of our presets for automatic color correction, or you can create your own custom look from these individual corrections.

Perfectly Clear Core Corrections

Start with our Perfectly Clear Core Corrections to fix any issues your photo might have from under exposure to noise reduction in images to photo color correction. Due to the physical hardware limitations of cameras (single lens, small sensors, and more), our cameras don’t capture an image exactly the way we saw it. Our Core Corrections detect what’s wrong and fix it automatically!

Each pixel has its own "camera", so you get an image with 12 Million* aperture and ISO settings.

Perfect Exposure

Due to the single aperture and wide dynamic range, underexposure and overexposure frequently occurs. What sets Perfectly Clear apart from the rest is our real color correction that corrects every pixel independently like it was taken by it’s own aperture. No clipping or color distortion occur, meaning we brighten the image without losing any precious details.

Image Color Correction & Restoration

Due to the linear nature of digital cameras, photos often are lacking in color vibrancy like a newspaper that's been sitting out in the sun. We automatically detect this and bring back the vibrant colors you saw with your eye. Sometimes image restoration tools apply the same saturation adjustments to every pixel which results in a color balance that looks off. Our image color correction is intelligent. Rather than applying the same color correction over the entire photo, we look at each pixel individually and adjust it accordingly. The result is photo color correction that mimics how the human eye would see it. With our batch image color correction, you’ll have perfect photos that look just like real life.

Sharpening

Most sharpening algorithms make images look flat and hard. Our picture enhancement technology only strengthens the strong signals after the analyses of each image. Soft focus areas remain soft, and we add more depth to images with landscape backgrounds. Our sharpening is also optimized for print, so a different amount of sharpening will be applied on screen versus what is printed for a more accurate result.

Depth & Super Contrast

Make your photos really pop! Perfectly Clear’s Super Contrast technology brings your photos back to life. Applying the right contrast settings creates depth, making a 2D image appear 3D. This is different than traditional contrast because it separates the foreground from the background, making the subject appear ready to pop off the page.

Abnormal Tint

We can fix abnormal tint and we can automatically detect if there is a tint issue. We also make sure that our tint correction keeps the whites white, so if you are photographing something like a wedding dress, it will make the right photo color correction.

Infrared

Unfortunately, cameras capture infrared whereas as eyes don’t. This often results in faces and skin appearing red. Our photo quality enhancement technology fixes those red tones on skin without washing out any other red in the image such as bold lipstick or clothing

LOOKs, based on 3D LUTs (also known as Lookup Tables), offer an intelligent filter for your photos. These are more than just your usual preset— our LOOKs remap the colors and tone of your images. Some of our looks include:

BW Film Stocks

Our BW Film Stock LOOKs were created to mimic the different types of black and white film.

Finishing Tools

If you’re looking for more manual photo corrections, our Finishing Tools are for you. Here, you’ll find the usual manual controls such as tint, contrast, saturation, and more. These are great to add to your own workflow, or we can build them into your products for your customers to use.

Supporting and Enabling Technology to make your products smarter

We’re always innovating and improving our automatic photo enhancement technology. Not only does Perfectly Clear automatically edit photos, we are continuously adding new features that revolutionize the photo editing world

Face Detection

We’ll locate each face and detect if the subject is blinking or smiling. We use this for our auto head sizing technology, Face Aware Exposure, and much more. You can license this technology to provide face coordinates for your use. You can also flag images in a product if the subject isn’t smiling or has their eyes closed.

Batch Image Resizing and Upscaling

This technology can make small images larger and large images smaller without damaging them. If you need to resize an image larger, you’ll lose pixels. The image will look blurry, and the customer will be unhappy. We added image resizing to our tech stack that creates more pixels to fill in the empty spots, resulting in a less blurry image.

This batch image resizing feature is especially important for labs; many consumers will upload images directly from social media that are very small in size. Our image quality increaser will keep your customers happy, and you’ll have a lot less reprints and a better ordering experience because there is no need to caution the user about printing the photo.

Clip Art Detection

If there’s clipart, illustrations, or avatars going through your system, you don’t want them edited. Perfectly Clear will skip right over them!

Background Balancing

One of the most difficult parts about a yearbook shoot is that you need all the backgrounds to look similar so they create a cohesive look as you flip through the pages. This can be achieved by expensive green screens or outsourcing the editing overseas. With the Background Balancing feature, all backgrounds can be “balanced” for just 10 cents an image!

Introducing Background Balancing

Auto Head Crop & Centering

Perfectly Clear now makes headshots a breeze with a new auto head cropping feature. Auto Head Cropping & Centering can detect the face in the photo and ensure the perfect crop every time. 

This is an additional feature that can be added to any Perfectly Clear license. Contact us today!

In summary, AI Scene Detection identifies the scene or lighting condition of the image, then applies a preset that was designed specifically for each type of image. By processing over 50.5 billion photos per year, we’ve been able to identify common themes and build an AI platform to leverage all this amassed intelligence.
