Tria Image Processing, Version 2.8.09

Downloading and Ordering information are at the bottom of this page.

Quarktet proudly announces the release of the Tria Image Processing Program, enabling rapid blind deconvolution of just about any image. Tria contains a specialized set of image processing algorithms that enable fast and effective deconvolutions, as well as many standard image processing tools. A full list of features and functions are listed on the features page.

The main attraction is the ability to use the patented SeDDaRA blind deconvolution technique, in a straight-forward and easy manner, to remove unidentified blur from digital images. The interface is easy-to-use, and designed for both professionals and amateurs. Also included are the Caron blind deconvolution process (an approximation of SeDDaRA), and a simple, fast and effective pseudo-inverse deconvolution process. Simply put, no other program offers these methods.  (And those that come close, offer them for a quite a bit more money.)

The program accepts both gray-scale and color images. Formats include bitmaps (8 and 24), jpegs, TIFFs (8,16,24,32,48,and 96-bit), FITS (8,16,and 32-bit, with FITS color), raw data files, and even delimited text files. In addition to the deconvolution tools, images can be resized, cropped, combined using image math, Fourier transformed, and displayed as complex images. Point spread functions can be cleaned and centered.  We also have developed a unique image comparison window for visual inspection of the results. No programming skills are required.

Version 2.0 provided a new automated image registration function that can align (translation and rotation) one image to another with sub-pixel accuracy.  The image viewer has multiple ways to change the contrast, provides interpolated and non-interpolated zooms, region-of-interesting contrasting, easy line-out plots, easy cropping, optional grids, customizable false color, and the option of changing the pixel scale.  (We designed the image viewer to be the best way to view higher-bit (greater than 8 or 24) images.) 

Version 2.3 delivers improved memory management (for larger image processing), flat-fielding, and batch processing for image math, filtering, and geometric transforms. Version 2.4 updates the program platform to Frameworks 3.5, and adds a totally revamped line-out and histogram graph (see below).  Batch processing, image metrics and a 64-bit version are included with version 2.5. Version 2.6 adds batch averaging, spot analysis tools, and improved SeDDaRA performance. Version 2.7 adds png, gif, and wmf formats and added two astro-image processing tools.  Version 2.8 adds several new image filters, improved image opening, and customizable image equations.

Tria contains a full help menu complete with step-through examples and processing hints. We designed the program with the concept that advanced image processing techniques can be used by those who may not be knowledgeable in the art, but still seek the desired result.

The program is available on the Tria Download page. The functions and features are listed on the features page.  We recommend that you rigorously try the demo before deciding to purchase. 

Compare Tool
Our unique comparison tool enables quick comparisons of unprocessed and processed images.

Tria V2.8 is now available at a reduced price of $320. For purchase, please choose a payment option:

1) Send your payment by credit card. (A PayPal account is not required.)

2) Send your U.S. check or money order to

Shipping is currently free. Maryland residents will need to add the 6% sales tax.

You will receive a package with installation instructions, a hardware key, and download information. 
Also, inform us if you will be using Vista 64-bit, this may require additional support.
