Helicon Focus and Focus Stacking. The digital revolution of the last few years made professional photo hardware widely available and affordable. Now it's the advanced technology that makes the difference. Plain single shots are bit by bit giving place to improved and more sophisticated technologies like HDR and EDoF.
Accurate rendition of colors
Processing of images with 16 bit precision preserves all the hues and details, exceeding dynamic range of camera sensors. Color profiles support enables accurate color reproduction and correct keeping of color information in the output file.
Efficient and easy RAW development
Handling RAW files have never been easier! Open RAW files in Helicon Focus or export them from Lightroom. Fully adjustable development controls, built-in and manufacturer’s codecs will satisfy even the most demanding user.
State-of-the-art processing algorithms
Helicon Focus became a de facto standard in focus stacking. Elaborate computing algorithms are standing behind each processed stack. Unique team of R&D engineers and software developers is constantly on the forefront of innovations and is always inspired to attempt the impossible.
Advanced interpolation options
Helicon Focus uses the most advanced resampling algorithms to preserve every detail.
Helicon Focus keeps pace with all modern advances, exploiting the capacity of the last-gen processors to the utmost. The software utilizes all cores for image processing, allowing to cut down the rendering time.
Stack length is no more a limit
Even long stacks of hundreds of high-resolution images are not a problem for Helicon Focus. With this software even a usual laptop in the field will be able to handle huge stacks of RAW files.
64 bit support
Got a top notch work station? Helicon Focus will use 100% of its memory and processor power!
Getting the maximum of your processor
Helicon Focus automatically detects the processor type and all available features of modern processors. All the data manipulations are managed with modern processor instructions (SSE, SSE2, AVX, FMA3).
With this feature of Helicon Focus you can process RAW files in native color space and save result as DNG file.
With Helicon Focus you get truly unique retouching brushes just at your fingertips. Once the stacking’s over, finish the result with retouching tools that no usual image editor has. No trivial solutions – only focus stacking specials. Copy areas from aligned source images or combine areas from several outputs – with Helicon Focus you get enhanced retouching capacity with streamlined interface.
If you are the one who likes everything to look perfect, use a special grid to do the fine and precise retouching of the 100% scale high-resolution image. Go cell by cell not to miss a thing.
Make everyone understand how small the subject you shot is – add a scale bar to the resulting image.
