better photos instantly
WHAT IS ORASIS?
Orasis is a 1-shot HDR app. It takes a single image and automatically transforms it to a well-exposed, natural-looking photo, simulating the way your eyes perceived the scenery at the moment the photo was taken. The name "Orasis" comes from the Greek word Όρασις, which means Vision.
Based on a decade of academic research, Orasis uses a unique image processing algorithm that:
Enhances dark and bright image regions.
Reveals information that was not visible before.
Does not affect the good parts of an image!
To the best of our knowledge this is a unique combination of features not offered by any other existing app.
Check out the following before/after comparisons and see how Orasis can improve your travel photos! All the photos below are a direct output of Orasis. No additional post-processing was applied on them.

Let the AI choose the best parameters for you
Auto AI mode
There are so many parameters to change in order to make a photo look great. That's why we have trained a specialised AI to do this for you! Orasis features a neural network trained with thousands of photos in order to predict the best parameters for each case. When you load a new image, it analyses it and automatically makes the best adjustments for you. Of course, you can further make your own adjustments if you want.
STATE OF THE ART IMAGE ENHANCEMENT
Unique correction algorithm
Orasis is the outcome of years of academic research. It can enhance shadows or bright areas, without affecting well-exposed image regions, without compromizing local details, or without introducing visible artefacts. We are not aware of any other mobile application out there that can improve back-light conditions like this. If you know such app, please do let us know! We would like to compare it with Orasis.
Just a few taps
Orasis is all about simplicity, aiming to improve your photos with as little taps as possible. Orasis is not a complicated image processing suite like Photoshop. We don't believe in making your mobile device a mirror image of your desktop computer. Load photo, fine-tune the automatic AI result, save. All you need is around 5 seconds in order to get a beautiful photo! It's that simple.
ORASIS IN THE APPSTORE
Orasis is available in 3 versions:
Orasis lite is the free version of Orasis. It has the full functionality of OrasisHD, but it only allows saving images in high resolution up to 10 times. After that, images are saved in 640x480 pixels. Additionally, it displays advertisements every time an image is saved or shared. Orasis lite is good for testing the app without having to directly buy the full version.
Orasis consistently has an average user rating of 4.5/5 stars across all countries in the AppStore! It was very difficult for us to chose among so many possitive reviews. Here are just a few of them.
"A Professional Image! This photo app digs into the shadows of an image and finds the colors there and presents an overall image that remains perfectly exposed while showing the photographer all that is available in the image. Subtle, but important for a real pro."
John Longenecker (Academy Award Winner) July 2012, iTunes
"This app on automatic does an amazing job of adjusting every photo I have tried it on. ... Other auto adjusters that I have seen did not come close to matching Orasis's combination of effectiveness and subtlety -- the photos this app produced looked like what prompted me to take the photo in the first place."

"Surprisingly pleasing results nearly every time! I am not given to using hyperbole; nevertheless, I feel compelled to state that the output of this app is Revelatory! I expect to continue to process even photos that seem already excellent through Orasis. Unexpectedly, it has made some excellent photos even better."

"I've tried a lot of apps that say they can quick fix dark photos, but Orasis delivers. I used the free version first (you should also), then purchased. If it didn't do what it said it would do, I wouldn't have purchased. Great job."
Noidzone - Aug 17 2016, iTunes
"I'm not one to often write reviews, but this app deserves much praise for its ability to rescue photos from the infamous faces in too-dark foreground that even Apples HDR camera doesn't expose properly. Easy to use with just enough tweaking power when you want further adjustment."
Hiko303 - Aug 11 2016, iTunes
"First time I've ever seen an app of this type! It is amazing how it corrects the photos automatically!"
Bsmyers - Mar 11 2015, iTunes
I’VE SEEN OTHER SIMILAR APPS. WHAT MAKES ORASIS THE BEST?
Orasis has 3 unique elements that set it apart from other image editing apps:
Smart auto AI for optimal parameter selection: a neural network corrects the photo for you.
The best tone correction algorithm: shadows and backlight can be corrected without affecting all other areas.
Simplified and intuitive user interface: very few taps per image needed.
Orasis is designed for the best results in the smallest amount of time. Our objective is: "Better photos, instantly!"
SHOULD I USE ORASISHD OR ORASIS?
Orasis iOS comes in 2 versions: the paid full version (OrasisHD) and the free trial version (Orasis). The free version has the full functionality of OrasisHD, but it only allows saving images in full resolution up to 10 times. After that, images are saved in 640x480 resolution. Additionally, it displays an advertisement every time an image is saved.
If you are not sure whether OrasisHD is good for you, please try Orasis for free, before purchasing OrasisHD. Our customer base consists of satisfied users, and we do not intend to change this any time soon :)
WHAT IS AN 1-SHOT HDR?
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a technique where visual information from multiple photos of different exposures is combined in order to create a new photo with visible information both in the shadows and in the very bright areas. Taking multiple photos of the same scene is not always possible though (e.g. moving objects).
Orasis offers an alternative to this. Its enhancement algorithm can improve a single photo in such a way that it brings out any "hidden" information in the shadows or bright areas. The final image closely resembles the result of a typical HDR photo, thus the name "1-shot HDR".
I HAVE A SUGGESTION ABOUT ORASIS — CAN YOU INCLUDE IT IN AN UPDATE?
We highly value your feedback. As such, many of the Orasis features were directly proposed by users. Please do not hesitate to contact us through email or Facebook and propose new cool features. We do our best to implement your suggestions. If your suggestion is included in the upcoming updates, we will personally thank you in the iTunes description!
Orasis does not transmit your personal data. We firmly believe that our users' personal data is not a product to be monetized. Orasis is an app that operates locally in your device. It does not require connection with a server in order to run. As such, all image processing happens in your device and no personal data is transmitted anywhere.
LOCATION DATA. If you allowed it, Orasis will access your location when you capture a new photo. This location will only be saved in the EXIF data of your photo, in order for you to be able later to filter your photos based on their location. If you do not grant access of your location to Orasis, no such information is stored in your photos and as such, you will not be able to have geo-filtering later. In any case, Orasis does not transmit you location data.
TRANSMISSION OF TECHNICAL DATA. In the unlikely event that the Orasis app crashes, and provided that there is internet connection, a message will be sent to our Firebase server, with technical details about the reason of the crash (e.g. part of the code where the crash happened). This is done in order for us to be able to track down technical issues and eventually make Orasis more stable. Again, no personal information of any kind is transmitted.
