EyeQ Announces Patent-Pending Background Balancing Technology for School Yearbooks

Press release from the issuing company

Background Balancing improves yearbooks with minimal effort

Calgary, Alb. – EyeQ, creator of Perfectly Clear automatic image correction, announced new patent-pending technology called Background Balancing that automatically improves yearbook portrait pages.

Background Balancing automatically balances the backgrounds of school portraits to ensure the entire page of a yearbook remains cohesive, consistent, and visually pleasing. Paired with the automatic photo editing and retouching technology of Perfectly Clear, this technology saves time and money while making yearbooks look better than ever.

“We’ve had numerous companies come to us and say that the number one problem with yearbooks is the distracting backgrounds,” says Brad Malcolm, co-founder and CEO of EyeQ. “Manual color correction is very tedious, time-consuming, and expensive. Using our image-correction expertise, EyeQ has automated this process, which will make a huge difference in production cost savings. In the end, it’s all about developing new innovations that our customers are looking for, especially something as big as this.”

Background Balancing is the solution for those photographers not using green screen in school portrait photography. The exposure and color of the background varies from photo to photo and needs to be edited for the yearbook. As part of Perfectly Clear QuickDesk, the popular workflow tool for photo labs and photographers, Background Balancing adds consistency to a formerly expensive, time-consuming chore.

“Traditionally, this is done by editing every photo for color, tone, and light retouching, then reviewing all the images to balance the backgrounds so they all match,” says Jeff Stephens, co-founder and CTO. “This is very time consuming, so QuickDesk will now do this for you, automatically. This is a problem our team has been working on for the past year, and we’ve taken a novel approach to solving this and are pleased to be able to introduce this one of a kind solution.”

In recognition of the current stressful and challenging circumstances, EyeQ is currently offering two months of QuickDesk and QuickServer at 50% discount and two months of Background Balancing at no cost.
