My mother died in 1996. She had a full life, and I have dozens of pictures of her — especially in her later years. But because she was born in 1927, there are precious few photos of her as a child.
This photo (right) was one of the few that I have cherished for many years. It is of my mother when she was 14 years old. It didn't do a whole lot for me as it was so small that I could barely experience the expression on her face, or on the face of my uncle (next to her). One project I have undertaken is to restore such photos and enlarge them to see what I might have missed all these years. As you can see, the photo is extremely small, so it was one of the last that I decided to enlarge. Old Family Photo for Photo Enhancement

I used Imagener Unlimited to enlarge this photo, and used the Resharp function setting the amounts to:

  • Amount: 50
  • Radius: 2
  • Threshold: 2

The resulting picture (below) was astonishing to me. I could see features on my mothers face that showed unique features present in other family members, and now it was suitable for printing and framing. Imagener had resurrected this photo and given it new life!

Kneson Software has a currency calculator that replaces the Windows calculator and allows you to see currency differences automatically and continuously. It quickly and easily calculates the value of one currency into another. Kneson's Currency Calculator remembers the currencies you want to calculate exchange rates for forever - even after you close the program and restart it. You don't have to wrestle with website currency converters that make you use the mouse and keyboard to select multiple currencies, then forgets your selections after one conversion making you select them all again. Just input amounts of a base currency and a list of other currencies are shown in that amount.

Become Familiar With Old or Other Currencies
Use Currency Calculator to become familiar with other currencies quickly. If you are travelling to countries that you have not previously been to, you can use Currency Calculator for your expense reports or personal accounting without being hampered by slow web-based exchange rate calculators.

Currency Converter interface
Interface example. Not full scale.
Or if you have found that you cannot get a "feel" for how much things cost because you are familiar with an old currency that has been replaced by the Euro, you can use Currency Calculator to improve your cost consciousness. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT CURRENCY CALCULATOR
