Retouch your scanned photos automatically
Old photos usually fade or yellow. Why does this happen? It's mainly down to 3 things: 1) UV radiation. Ultraviolet frequencies are a part of natural sunlight. These rays are damaging, they will cause your photos to fade out over time. Protect your old prints from light, keep them under cover all the time! 2) Acidic paper. Some photos have been printed on material that will deteriorate without any interference over time. This usually causes orangeish tint in your photo. 3) Fungal growth. You can't avoid these tiny lifeforms - they will cause brownish discoloration to your photos.
Whatever happened to your colors, AutoSplitter offers automatic photo correction features which efficiently fights against all these aging effects. Revitalize colors feature will bring your old, faded or yellowed photos back to life. Even black and white photos are going to be much more vivid after revitalization. You can also change contrast and saturation values of your scanned photos. Increased contrast will make photos more lively, while increased saturation will make colors pop out even more.

Add text captions to your scanned photos
Responding to popular request you can now add text captions under your scanned photos. Caption font, color and background color can be changed to suit your taste.
Scan multiple photos at once, then caption them just before saving to disc. Text captions are a useful tool to preserve and relive even more memories. You can add dates, locations and names of friends and relatives who have been captured in the photo.

Please update your scanner's driver software package if you experience compatibility issues. Open files of TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PNG or BMP. Save all of these except BMP.

This comes handy in case you would ever want to reproduce your scans in print.
