Reshade today announced a new version of its photo enlargement software for Windows. According to the company spokesperson the new Reshade Image Enlarger v1.5 offers several essential functional improvements.
One of the distinctive new features added is edge smoothing, or in layman’s terms image smearing. This is an important aspect of any image correction tool improving photo quality by removing defects such as scratches and dust. These kinds of defects become more of a problem especially when magnifying an image.
Additionally the algorithm has been improved. As one of the engineers stated “when there are a lot of parameters involved there’s always room for improvement”, so the new version features a re-tweaking and optimization delivering even better quality than the previous.
The application includes an advanced image up-scaling method that makes possible very large magnification factors (over 20x) without losing image clarity. The software allows for better quality high resolution images to be generated from low resolution originals. This makes the application very useful in fields of work where high resolution prints are a necessity. Reshade photo enlargement software is especially useful in particular for forensics where keeping every detail in the original photo is of utmost importance. Doing this across all magnification levels is an added bonus that the software provides.
As Vlad Hosu, CEO of Reshade states “The new version will bring an added bonus to the quality of the enlarged photos. The edge control interpolation mechanism has been improved delivering better results. Add this to the quality improvements resulting from the new smooth feature and you get a greatly enhanced application. Photographers will be mostly the ones benefiting from this upgrade.”
Reshade is now offering a 50% to 70% discount on their online image resizer premium account to accommodate the needs of their customers, at a lower cost. A premium account option offers more features than their regular account option, which allows customer to resize images online for free. Customers can choose from either option, depending on their needs at the time of purchase.
Some of the newest features offered by this online image resizer, through their premium account option, enable customers to:
- Avoid zoom limits – This is an upgradable option from the 300% zoom limit when you resize pictures online free. This ‘no limit’ feature is also extended to free subsequent resizes of the same image.
- Achieve a better resolution – A higher resizing limit allows for a higher resolution and a better quality image. Images can be resized up to 6000×3750px on premium accounts. This counters the resizing limit of 1920×1200px on free accounts.
- Get free resizes of the same image at lower resolutions – When you purchase a premium online image resize, reprints at lower resolutions are free. While all resizes under 1920×1200px are already free, this will also include any resize that is between 1920×1200px and your purchased resized image. So if you order a premium resize of 4000×2500px, future resizes of the same image will be free as long as they are under 4000×2500px, even if they are supposed to cost credits.
- Better quality on smaller subsequent resizes of the same image – When you resize an image to one of the higher resolutions offered through a premium account, all subsequent smaller resizes of that image will display better quality than before they were adjusted to accommodate the larger size. The larger the difference is between the two sizes, the higher quality the smaller subsequent resize will be.
Regular prices for their online image resizer are set at $9.90 for 10 credits, $24.75 for 25 credits, and $49.50 for 50 credits. With the new discounts, customers can get credits at $4.95 for 10 credits (a 50% discount,) $9.90 for 25 credits (a 60% discount) and $14.85 for 50 credits (a 70% discount.)

Launched in January 2007, Reshade’s photo enlarger application operates under the banner “quality preserving image enlargement”. The highly accurate algorithm used has a unique ability to enlarge photos at all zoom levels and maintain photo realism, while competitors only handle limited zoom ranges.
Reshade Windows application targets professional photographers and companies that require high definition enlarged photos, nature pictures and satellite images. The product is especially useful for professionals who wish to enlarge photos taken with cell phone cameras, as picture quality suffers most without a capable picture enlarger. The online image resizer is free but the software provides better quality and more options.
While Photoshop plug-in ability and image cropping is still under development for the product, Reshade compensates generously with its pricing and the highest image resizing quality. Currently there is no better priced product for the target market, and Reshade is marking the milestone by making the deal an even more attractive one for its clientèle.
“I started with trying to solve a personal problem: using small images as wallpapers. I worked with Photoshop a lot, but no single solution I devised applied to all new images I wanted to use”, says the founder of Reshade, Vlad Hosu. “This was the main reason for selling the stand-alone product widely requested by users once Reshade was available online”.
