UT Austin Launches Free Enlarging and Denoising Web App

Movies and TV shows have a knack for making it seem as if you could take a horrible, low-resolution image and turn it into a high-res masterpiece -- the term "enhance" has become almost comical. And for every mention of magical television enhancement, there's mention of some special algorithm at work that makes it happen.

Well, the University of Texas at Austin's RCM Tools web app isn't quite up to cable drama standards, but it's their attempt to apply special algorithms to image enhancement and denoising, and it's free for photographers to experiment with.
