Photo-D is a comprehensive, rule-based Intelligent Expert System (IES) that automatically optimizes and enhances digital image files, preparing them for printing or viewing. The software, easy enough for anyone to use, uses sophisticated fuzzy logic and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, and emulates the decision-making expertise of a traditional color expert or digital imaging professional to analyze, correct, and produce high-quality image files. Photo-D software acquires sets of photos and analyzes them as a "human" graphic arts expert would by looking for problems associated with under- or over-exposure, contrast, brightness, color and details, and then corrects the problems automatically to obtain optimal, quality results. The new Photo-D version for the Graphic Arts transforms images from their original color space, as defined by the digital camera (or scanner), to the destination (output/print) color space, using the corresponding ICC Profiles in various rendering intents. The resulting image, therefore, includes the embedded ICC Profile; ensuring a smooth transition into the next stage of the graphic arts workflow. Photo-D also keeps the metadata of the original image even after automatic processing.
