Sharpness redefined: Next generation lens correction
We have released version 2.5 with significantly improved processing speed. Click here for more information. piccure+ is now compatible with Adobe® Photoshop®/Lightroom® CC 2015. Simply download the latest installers and run them again. This will not affect your license. (June 17th, 2015) piccure+ is fully compatible with Win 10 (Aug 4th, 2015)
Correct optical aberrations and camera shake like never before
piccure+ is a new application capable of correcting optical aberrations and camera shake that cause a lack of sharpness in your images. It integrates seamlessly as a plugin (filter) into Adobe® Photoshop®, Photoshop® Elements and Lightroom®. It can also be called directly from within DxO Optics Pro® and PhaseOne CaptureOne®. piccure+ also works as standalone including RAW converter – everything for just 99 USD*.
piccure+ uses a novel method that essentially inverts the optical processes that cause images to look blurry. With the help of piccure+, your equipment can now be upgraded with a mouse click. piccure+ is useful for both expensive fast lenses as well as economic zoom lenses. You will often be able to match the sharpness of lenses costing several thousands of dollars with equipment costing a mere fraction of that amount, and finally get that “crisp” touch with your prime lens wide open. No other solution gives your equipment a similar upgrade. The improvements get more substantial with increasing image size: many lenses cannot match today’s sensor resolution of up to 36 or even 50 megapixels. Only with the latest and best lenses, and ideally with a camera mounted on a tripod will you directly benefit from these large sensor resolutions. In all other cases, piccure+ can help you make full use of your sensor.
Don’t lose 40-80% of your sensor resolution to lens softness
piccure+ is primarily aimed towards professional photographers shooting 20+ MP RAW images. However, many photographers don’t know that they lose 40-80% of their sensor resolution to lens softness. Even the latest lenses often cannot match the resolution of modern camera sensors. DxOLabs (famous for their camera and lens tests) evaluated many of the most recent Nikon lenses with the following results (sensor resolution vs. Perceptual MPix).

Currently, piccure+ is the most advanced tool in the field of computational photography and essentially defines the state of the art. Lenses are bound by the laws of optics and lens designers have to strike a difficult balance by trading off image quality with conflicting goals such as price, speed, and weight of a lens. Additional imperfections occur due to manufacturing tolerances. The end result is usually sub-optimal image quality. We tackle this problem using computational photography and machine learning. piccure+ helps you when your lens operates at the edge of its design capabilities and can give you a significant quality improvement. Its effect will be greatest for large optical aberrations.
The quality of fine detail sharpening is amongst the best I’ve seen. In many examples, it just looks as if I’m now seeing the limits of sensor resolution much more clearly.
I found Piccure+ an excellent tool for those of you craving “a greater grip on reality.” It was able to enhance a number of images in my collection that I’d abandoned because the results I could obtain through Photoshop or Lightroom just didn’t live up to my expectations.
piccure+ does real math with your original images as they come out of camera to make them sharper and cleaner. There isn’t a serious photographer out there, who cannot benefit from piccure+
In practice I found that piccure worked very well, often better and more quickly than the shake reduction in Photoshop CC […] It’s definately a valuable tool to have available in your toolbox
Piccure Plugin Magically Reduces Camera Shake, Beats Adobe to the Punch.
Piccure shines, letting you polish away the little blurs that mar an otherwise perfect shot.
I was quite surprised indeed, nice job the actual render time was super quick even on Highest quality about 4 seconds.
From my test I can see PICCURE did an incredible job of removing camera shake induced artifacts and blurriness!
Awesome results. I shoot gigapans often at extreme distances and am sometimes plagued by shutter induced shake with 300-400mm lenses even when mounted on a solid tripod. […] Anyway your product is a godsend. Thanks.
However, of most importance – the corrections range from very good to amazing! I have been blown away by how well a fuzzy picture can be corrected!
There was not a better time for me to have found this plugin. I honestly think it’s a gift from god.[…] A lot of my friends are going to be extremely happy.
Of the anti shake plug ins I have used this is the best and the fastest. I think you are on the right track.
How is it any different from the competition?
|There are two main differences: 1) piccure+ fixes errors specifically for the image at hand. There are significant copy-to-copy variations in both lenses and camera bodies. This limits the effectiveness of “lens profiles” that are only specific to your lens model, but not to the actual lens you got, let alone to your camera body. 2) piccure+ uses a process called deconvolution to reverse the blur. This is much more complex than the classical “unsharp masking” operations and can correct complex blurs (e.g. coma, spherical aberrations). It’s extremely difficult to do well.|
Currently, piccure+ is the only solution capable of correcting spatially varying optical aberrations by means of blind deconvolution. Other tools may promise you deconvolution but they do not account for the variation of optical aberrations across the image. With piccure+, you get the most advanced tool currently on the market to correct those aberrations.
