Intelligent Software For Photographers
We make innovative software for creative photographers. The art of photography is infinite with the right tools: go beyond the limits.
Focus stacking software: a post-processing technique that extends the depth of field in your photographs.To use this technique, you take several images of the same scene, focusing your lens on a different part of the object for each shot. Then you can use Helicon Focus to blend all the sharp areas together and
produce a completely sharp image.
Tethered photography for Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras: automates focus (DoF) bracketing, which allows precise and uniform steps, advanced exposure bracketing and time-lapse shooting—even all these combined if necessary. Tethered photography makes focus stacking more accurate, reproducible, and higher quality than can be achieved with manual shots.
A complete image editing package. The problem-oriented interface and contextual help system mean you’ll be up and running in no time at all: image
editing has never been easier! With smart tools for cropping, straightening, brightness, contrast, white balance and other routines, the software is very
easy to learn to use. And the task-oriented retouching brushes let you create superb portraits in minutes.
View, manipulate and export 3D models generated by Helicon Focus, plus export parallel and cross-view stereo pairs, different types of anaglyph images, web animations, and even videos. With focus stacking and Helicon 3D Viewer you can add an extra dimension to your photography without much effort.
Clone objects from one photograph onto another and swap heads and faces to create perfect group portraits and funny collages. The color-sensitive
selection brush with real-time preview allows you to select very complex contours for cloning, such as wild hair. After selecting the object for cloning, you can rotate, move, and scale it in the target image.
"The software is surprisingly easy to use and produces stunning results with the default settings. Helicon Focus will also allow the power user to alter the output based on a number of settings."
"Without too much fuss Helicon focus has created an image more than a little impossible a few years ago. I have been a professional film-maker and photographer for more than twenty years and I have never been more impressed by a software."
Helicon Focus is a fantastic program from Helicon Soft that was originally designed for macro photography, but it can also be applied to other types of images, such as landscapes, gardens, still-life photography, and even architecture.
