Multiscale Tone Mapping

Make your HDR images look great with Astra Image's multiscale tone mapping. Easily bring out details and adjust the brightness of your HDR photos.


Powerful Non-Linear Adjustments.

From simple to advanced, Astra Image's easy-to-use professional adjustment tools will help you to make amazing photos. With exposure, multi-zone contrast and tone, color, and much more.

Easy and intuitive.

All adjustments are done in real-time, so you can fine-tune quickly and easily. Want to reset? That's easy too.


Robust detail-preserving denoising.

Remove noise and keep the details. Astra Image's denoise tool is very simple to use, but produces amazing results.

Two independent channels.

Color and luminance can be denoised separately, allowing you to tailor to the exact noise that is in your photo.

Edge-Aware Filtering

So much more that "Surface Blur".

Astra Image goes beyond the "surface blur" tool and has full edge-aware filtering. This not only gives you more control, it also produces much better smoothing.

More Filtering Power.

With the addition of a guide image, you can do advanced image processing like flash / no flash denoising. And Astra Image makes it simple.

Smart Decolor

Convert color to stunning monochrome.

This is no simple color to monochrome tool. Astra Image uses a state-of-the-art algorithm to remove color while preserving contrast. Great for producing dramatic black-and-white images from your color photos.

Great for printing too.

Want to print your color photo in black-and-white? Using the Astra Image Smart Decolor tool will give you a great result. Works really well for printing maps too.
