Welcome to the Exposure Magic Home Page

The Special K Software Exposure Magic program eliminates a world wide problem that has been present since the inception of photography. Do you often find that the composition you want to photograph has different areas that require different lighting conditions and exposures? This particularly occurs with natural scenery. This software application combines different pictures taken with different exposures into a single Perfectly Exposed Image. That means that you can capture your images with different areas in the image well exposed, and the software will deconvolute the images into the one single perfect image.

To construct this Montage from a number of other images, a variety of sophisticated algorithms are used. The software has the versatility to allow the used to evaluate different algorithms and smoothing options.

The latest version has enhanced logic and is MUCH FASTER. It also allows the printing and editing of LARGER PICTURES.
