If you have photos that look too dim (faded, with softened colors as a result of incorrect scanner settings or poor scan source, shooting with cameras of low quality) and want to fix their quality and make them “brighter” for printing or publishing on a website or just for your home collection, you can correct many images with similar defects (received from the same source or created with the same scanner) with the help of Image Converter Plus. All you have to do is select correct settings for one photo from the batch.

Do the following:

Step 1:

  • Launch Image Converter Plus.

Step 2:

  • Go to “Photos” tab, select and photos you want to process.

Step 3:

  • Go to “Profiles” tab, click “Add operation” in “Operation before save: Add operation” line and select “Brightness/Contrast”.

Step 4:

  • Press “Show Preview” button and then “Generate” button to monitor conversion.

Step 5:

  • Click “+” mark located to the left from “Add operation” line to open the group of settings for added operations.

Step 6:

  • In “Brightness/Contrast”, select the needed contrast value (usually within 10 – 50 range), and check the result in “Result File” window by pressing “Generate” button. Once you are satisfied with the result, move to step 8.

Step 7:

  • If step 6 results in satisfactory brightness, but colors remain faded, change “Brightness” value (from -5 to -20. The lower is the value, the more saturated are the colors). Then, repeat step 6.

Step 8:

  • If the image is satisfactory, do the following:

Step 9:

  • Specify settings for the destination file format (optimal values are specified by default).

Step 10:

  • Specify the folder to save converted images to.

Step 11:

  • Press “Start” button to start conversion.
