Excellent free HDR app

This app is an excellent entry into the world of HDR imaging. Shortly afterwards I upgraded to the Pro version directly from Ohanaware which adds many fine-tuning features, and a true HDR mode in addition to the standard Exposure Blending method.

I was also impressed with its ability to handle RAW images (I use Canon's .CR2 format) which eliminates the need for file conversion and gives a greater dynamic range than regular .JPGs.

The Pro version is well worth the bargain price, in spite of a handful of negative reviews from users, and is capable of giving some stunning results.

Two thumbs up from this dSLR user :-)

Problems with File Handling in OS X

The only way I could get the software to accept a photo being dragged into it was to save it on my Mac Air desktop. So appears it requires upgrading to take account of OSXas the last update was in October 2011! Other than that the software appeared to work OK within a limited range of adjustments.

Simple and very effective

Created my first HDR image within seconds of downloading. Incredibly easy to use. Very good results.
