SilverFast HDR offers tools for automatic image optimization and color cast removal. You can easily adapt individual colors or the overall color impression. Tools for image sharpening and removal of defects make the HDR software a performant allrounder.

If you want to get the maximum out of the digital images coming from your camera or other sources, SilverFast supports you with numerous automatic functions. SilverFast HDR helps you to restore the original quality of the scanned images. The JobManager facilitates your work by allowing you to process series of images manually or with optimizations that you copy from one image to the other images.

As integral part of the SilverFast RAW data concept, SilverFast offers optimal quality from end to end. You work lossless and non-destructive with full bit depth at all times, keeping your original images untouched and with the option to return to their initial state. Instead of processing your images over and over again with every tool, SilverFast stores your optimizations in the first place. They are then applied in an optimal sequence during the final processing. Thus, you don't have to worry about the right sequence for the application of the tools.

SilverFast JobManager
The JobManager is a valuable SilverFast tool for efficient batch processing. In this case, batch processing means multiple scan frames are scanned automatically in sequence; a useful functionality, when multiple photos, slides or negatives are placed on a scanner's flatbed. In SilverFast HDR, the JobManager is even more effective. Any number of previously scanned RAW image files can be optimized in batch mode automatically one after the other.

SilverFast ColorServer
Using the SilverFast ColorServer you will process and optimize your images fully automatically. You create an input folder and a set of image processing rules. SilverFast monitors this folder and applies your rules to all image files, which get stored in this folder. The results can be found in an associated output folder, while your originals are moved into an archive folder.

Compared to a manual adjustment of processing parameters for each individual image you can save a lot of work and time using the ColorServer.
