“Purple Haze” reduction in Perfectly Clear

Athentech Perfectly Clear for iPhoneOne of my go-to utilities since my original iPhone 2G days is Perfectly Clear by Athentech. It’s a Dynamic Range Correction (DRC) app that automatically performs lab-quality corrections that help improve the contrast, exposure and vibrance of an image. It’s also the best software fix currently available for the iPhone 5 “purple haze” problem.

Perfectly Clear is on sale now for only $0.99 – that’s a big savings of $2 off. This discount is for a limited time only, so grab it now. App Store link is after the jump. >>>

Why I Recommend Perfectly Clear

Perfectly Clear has been in My Camera Bag post since I bought it years ago and will still be there when the post gets updated soon. Even with the great camera in the iPhone 5, I still use Perfectly Clear often to clean up photos and get them ready for any other processing I may do.

Not to cannibalize Athentech’s sales, but this is the same image processing engine behind their Photoshop plugin, which costs a heluva lot more than a buck or three.

Even an iPhone 5 or 4S will occasionally take pictures that need help. With one click, it corrects color balance, punches up the vibrance, sharpens images, and helps enhance and balance shadow areas. The built-in Noise Reduction is among the best I’ve found on the iOS platform. Perfectly Clear also reduces — often dramatically — or fixes “Purple Haze,” the purple tint effect found sometimes with the iPhone 5 camera.

With newer iPhones, you may not always see noticeable results, but many times the results are better overall balance and more visually pleasing color. Perfectly Clear is a quick and easy fix to add punch to flat images and get photos looking like you expect them to.

It’s now got a maximum image size for iPhone5 and iPad3 of 24.5 MP — that’s about a 4948×4948 px image.

I still recommend Perfectly Clear to owners of new iPhones. For older iPhones, it’s a highly recommended, even essential, purchase.

Perfectly Clear is normally $2.99 in the App Store. It’s a Universal app that’s designed to run great on both iPhone and iPad. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
