Quick Start Instructions

The initial value of the Enhance Detail slider is the number of intensity levels there are in the image. Move the Enhance Detail slider to the left, its value gets smaller and detail is increasingly revealed. You can reduce the value as low as 3. To disable this slider move it back to its highest value.

The Smooth Detail slider value is initially 1. As you move this slider to the right the value increases and detail is smoothed. To disable this slider move it back to 1.

Use both sliders to pull out contrast patterns in the image.

There is a slider to mix in a % of the original image. There is a slider to eliminate a % of any color shifts.

Click on Split Channels and enhance each RGB channel separately.

More on how the Enhance Detail slider lets you peer into the highlights and shadows of your image simultaneously and effectively.
