Advanced Local Contrast Enhancer
ALCE is a Photoshop Extension performing a routine that boosts the image's Local Contrast, adding shape and a distinct 3D look, that might even remind HDR tone mapping.
ALCE's main parameter is the Radius: the smaller, the "more Local" is the contrast boost. Version 3 features a new and powerful Multiple Radii routine.
ALCE's algorithm, while boosting contrast, protects from clipping (loss of detail) important and delicate tonal range areas such as the Shadows and the Highlights.
You can easily record ALCE into an Action for batch processing large amount of files. It works with either single and the Multiple Radii routine.
Everything you need to know about ALCE 3 in nine minutes of weird fun. Believe me.
