Hank Dietz of the University of Kentucky, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and James F. Hardymon Chair in Networking, and no doubt some assistants, has developed and posted a test interface for their DeOrbit tool. DeOrbit was built specifically to reduce the artificial appearance of the white orbs notoriously present in Fuji X10 images. The DeOrbit tool does this by recognizing saturated regions, synthesizing credible detail for these regions, and then brightening toward the center of each region.
The tool will be released as public domain full C source code, but is made available now to collect more test cases for improving it. As a result, please be aware any images submitted to it will be logged and may be used as test cases for improving the program further before release of the stand-alone version. The link to the DeOrbit tool is here.
