This fairly innocent-looking filter can be a good addition to your photo-enhancement arsenal. It increases contrast and detail in the midtones or shadows where they have disappeared into low-contrast insignificance.It almost seems to create new lighting and shadows in areas where there is just blandness in the original.Try it on your poorly exposed photos – or even well-exposed ones for that additional "kick". Works miracles in bringing out detail where it has been lost. It works almost anywhere where there is lack of contrast in an image.Use the Gamma control to determine which midtone areas are affected the most: low Gamma affects light midtones (light shadows) most, high Gamma low midtones (dark shadows).Added in V2: Use Sparse Blur Option for large images, they process much faster that way.
