KODAK PROFESSIONAL SHO Plug-In

Optimizes contrast and exposure

By optimizing contrast and exposure to reveal details hidden in highlights and shadows, this plug-in corrects exposure problems in images with backlit subjects and uneven flash illumination, as well as partial shade. Control can be automatic or custom. This plug-in works only on 8-bit color images.

It lets you manipulate both shadow detail lighting and highlight darkening—giving you separate control of the amount of detail to reveal in each area, as well as color saturation.

Works with the SHO Plug-In to reveal details hidden in the shadows and highlights. It emphasizes skin tones and detail areas in the center (or focal point) of your image. It de-emphasizes the outer edges of the image by applying a subtle vignette, leaving the dark and light areas near the edges untouched.
