Hi Bob!
I'm not sure you understood the purpose of Digital SHO. The purpose of
Digital SHO is to reveal the shadows without blowing the highlights. We have
had many people try to get the same results at tradeshows where we give
demonstrations. Usually after much effort with masking and other effort they
get a result that is inferior to Digital SHO. Granted you can reveal the
detail in shadows simply with curves, but the highlights go away. As far as
I know, there isn't another program that can do what Digital SHO can do.

We've had a lot of very enthusiastic users from artists to police
departments rave about the results. You might want to take a look at some
examples from users on our website at:
http://www.asf.com/gallery/users/sho/index.shtml, to see what it is capable
of doing.

Jack,

I've just downloaded your Digital SHO and tried it. I'm not impressed. It
only works in 8bit, is very slow, and doesn't preview on the actual image.
If I've got to convert to 8bit, it is as quick to make a duplicate layer,
invert, desat, and Gblur it, and then use various amounts of Overlay, Hard
Light or Soft light to see the actual results on the image. I'm afraid that
it also give better results IMO.

I love the Digital ICE on my Nikon Scanner, but this one it not for me.

Bob Frost.

Hello Tom!
Have you tried Digital SHO to dig the detail out of the shadows? It does a
rather incredible job of showing detail without blowing the highlights. I
realize this isn't really the question you are asking in that you have to
have shadow detail available in the scan in order for Digital SHO to do its
job. However, if you have shadows and highlights and you want to show both
of them in a single image this program does wonders.

You can download a sample version of the program at www.asf.com.
