ACDSee Light EQ™ Technology

És l’equivalent a Ombres/il·luminació del fotoshop.

This technology makes it possible to adjust lighting in specific areas in images without affecting others. You can simultaneously lighten areas that are too dark, and darken areas that are too bright. If the foreground subject is backlit, you can easily lighten that subject up without blowing out the background. For a quick adjustment, this Light EQ™ technology can be found in Edit mode’s 1-Step lighting tool, which makes it possible for users to merely open an image and have it intuitively improved automatically.

Light EQ™ technology also powers View mode’s Auto EQ. This tool allows for users to press the Auto EQ button and view their image with an automatic exposure boost, commitment-free. What does commitment-free mean? It means that you can see what your image would look like with responsive lighting correction without saving the correction or even entering Edit mode. This makes it easy to determine which images in your collection could benefit from adjustment as you browse, expediting your cataloging and organizing process.

At seventeen

“AT SEVENTEEN”

By Janis Ian

I learned the truth at seventeen
That love was meant for beauty queens
And high school girls with clear skinned smiles
Who married young and then retired
The valentines I never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
Were spent on one more beautiful
At seventeen I learned the truth…

And those of us with ravaged faces
Lacking in the social graces
Desperately remained at home
Inventing lovers on the phone
Who called to say “come dance with me”
And murmured vague obscenities
It isn’t all it seems at seventeen…

A brown eyed girl in hand me downs
Whose name I never could pronounce
Said: “Pity please the ones who serve
They only get what they deserve”
The rich relationed hometown queen
Marries into what she needs
With a guarantee of company
And haven for the elderly…

So remember those who win the game
Lose the love they sought to gain
In debitures of quality and dubious integrity
Their small-town eyes will gape at you
In dull surprise when payment due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen…

To those of us who knew the pain
Of valentines that never came
And those whose names were never called
When choosing sides for basketball
It was long ago and far away
the world was younger than today
when dreams were all they gave for free
to ugly duckling girls like me…

We all play the game, and when we dare
We cheat ourselves at solitaire
Inventing lovers on the phone
Repenting other lives unknown
That call and say: “Come on, dance with me”
And murmur vague obscenities
At ugly girls like me, at seventeen…
