What is HDR?
High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Exposure Blending make it possible to create highly detailed and ultra-realistic photographs with your digital camera. HDR works by combining exposure information using complex mathematics, while Exposure Blending works by simply selecting and cutting out the best parts of each photo. These two different techniques can generate different results. One technique might work better for one image than the other. This is why we think it's best to have both techniques available to use.

Ratings and Reviews


Needs more ‘Styles’….

I have used this excellent product on my MBP Retina quite a few times and it has performed flawlessly. This is a great product to have fun with and there is no doubt it will enhance your photo’s although the end result may not be to everyone’s liking. This really depends on whether you like a picture to represent what you actually saw through the lens or more like one on the front cover of a photo magazine. I bought this product simply to try out some HDR shots using my Nikon D90 bracketing feature and it really does work well. My only critcism is that it is a shame you can’t purchase additional ‘Style’ presets to expand those included in the library as you soon get a favourite and things start to get a bit repetitive. Overall, a great product which I would recommend without hesitation.


keeps crashing

this application may be fine when working with small files but throw three 21 megapixel raw files at it and you then quickly see its limitations. It only managed to work once after that it just hung up constantly. Not impressed when I had just bought it based on the rave reviews it seemed to be getting everywhere. Obviously the reviewers had only been using small files to get it to do anything. If you are using anything like a pro spec camera at 15 megapixel or above then may I suggest caution with this particular product.

Great update!

This program's really good - especially with the update that fixes the slow sider syndrome I've been getting on my (older) macbook. It's well worth upgrading from the free program in my opinion. I can now get on with my HDR work! :D

The results are impressive.
