About Elpical Claro

Automatic image enhancement in its most user-friendly form ever

Example of a optimization

Whether you publish newspapers, magazines, catalogs, or digital content: you need to process high volumes of images at a fast pace while maintaining specific style and quality standards. It is for this reason that Elpical has developed highly professional server based automatic image enhancement, image workflow and image management solutions. Using our Claro software will save you money, time and stress!

Achieve consistency with Claro | Although it seems contradictory, automatic image enhancement actually requires an individual approach. After all, what is good for one image is not necessarily good for another. Claro Individual Image Analysis inspects every individual image thoroughly, looking for such parameters as sharpness, brightness, contrast, color balance, and skin tones among others. This extensive individual analysis is fundamental to Elpical’s image enhancement technology. This allows publishing software Claro to achieve consistent high-quality results, even when the origin and quality of the original images vary significantly.

Stay in control with Claro | Stay in control of your workflow with the Elpical Claro Inspector for Photoshop®, which allows you to route critical images (automatic detection) to Adobe Photoshop for side-by-side comparisons and further manual tweaking.

Publish in a cross-media landscape | You often have the need to need to produce images for multiple media (print, website and mobile platforms). These tend to have different image processing requirements, which means you have to create a variety of versions for each original image; high-res CMYK version for print, 72DPI RGB files for the web and various sizes for the mobile platform. With Claro software you can easily and automatically create all of the required versions in one go.

You can always rely on Claro | Many publishers dealing with a large number of images on a daily basis already rely heavily on the availability of their Claro processes to ensure continuity in daily production. These clients often depend on multiple Claro servers to do the job. With automatic load-balancing and failover features in a centralized production environment, customers can get the reliability they need with multiple Claro servers operating in cluster mode. In this pool of Claro servers processes run continuously, even if one Claro system would fail. This ensures you will always have access to your software and your work will never have to be delayed due to technical issues.
