Do some of your images have that dull, flat and fuzzy look to them? Even with the advances of camera technology, it’s still easy to shoot a bad picture. Whether you take pictures with your iOS or Android device, a point-and-shoot, or a DSLR camera, Athentech has an excellent complement to your photography arsenal – Perfectly Clear.
Perfectly Clear is an image autocorrection technology that can be applied to a photo or batch of photos and will instantly clean up a lot of unwanted noise, smooth out rough features, and correct lighting among other features. The technology behind these auto-correction functions is already used in multiple photo kiosks and labs around the world and Athentech has packaged them into a plugin and app for consumers to use on their mobile devices and computers. While Perfectly Clear has been previously available as a plug-in for Photoshop and Lightroom and as an app for iOS devices, it has also recently released a highly anticipated app for the Android platform.
What does it do?
With one click, Perfectly Clear applies 12 different corrections to your images including:
- Perfect Exposure
- Color Vibrancy
- Noise Removal
- Tint Removal
- Depth (Contrast)
- Skin Tone
- Light Diffusion
- Red-eye Removal
- Color Fidelity
- Color – Vivid
- Dynamic Range
If you want more control over the changes or want to further tweak your image, there are easy to use slider controls where you can further adjust exposure, tint, and sharpening.
How does it work?
Perfectly Clear is designed to simulate the human eye. Instead of fine-tuning one particular element, it looks at all the elements of the image and focuses on the light, optimizing and correcting each pixel.
Is it easy to use?
On mobile devices, the app is extremely easy and fast to operate. Just open the app, load a picture and it applies the auto-corrections almost instantly. You’ll see a line down the middle of the picture that you can slide left and right which shows you the dull before and eye-popping after corrections and also gives you additional sliders to tweak it even more.
The Photoshop and Lightroom apps are just as easy and show the user before and after images side by side so you can see the difference after applying the speedy auto-corrections.
Who is it for?
While Perfectly Clear doesn’t offer the detailed fine-tuning that professional photographers spend hours applying to their work, it is the perfect complement for consumers and prosumers alike who just want to clean up and beautify their images or even batch post-process all their images for additional fine-tuning later.

(*Note: The mobile device apps also offer other correction features such as noise correction for an additional $0.99 via in-app pricing )
