Dynamic Light gives you the best and most vibrant HDR-like look on any mobile platform. And this is all accomplished from just a single image using only a single dial. Rotate the dial to the right and you get the very same HDR look you had admired on many photographic sites.

What others say:

"In one word, "WOW". This is a quick, simple app, with stunning effects that has just set a new standard in single photo HDR apps, and all for a bargain price." iPhoneography.com review.

"If you like to experiment with your photos and create totally unique looks, then Dynamic Light is definitely a HDR app you should check out for some crazy results." AppAdvice.com review.

"Dynamic Light does an excellent job of expanding the dynamic color range and luminosity of iPhone photos, giving them the qualities of a bracketed HDR image without the alignment problems of some HDR apps or the flat, lifeless look of most “pseudo-HDR” apps" lifeinlofi.com review

Don't let the virtual simplicity of our app fool you. Inside is a highly optimized full-blown proprietary processing taken directly from our DPHDR desktop application.

Unlike other apps that look complex outside while cutting you short on the actual processing we designed Dynamic Light the other way around to really show you that the shiny new iPhone and iPod touch can actually crunch the same data a desktop computer can.

You can use the build-in camera or load image from the album. For our testing we even downloaded images from our professional DSLR camera and the iPone chewed through it in nearly the same time like on our desktop. That says a lot about our code optimization and the wizards in Cupertino who designed the hardware.

As a special treat we also included few not-so typical effects that are a good match for the HDR look like Orton, Sepia, Vignette, Mysterious Light etc.
There are also two special designed effect Comic and Manga. You have to really save the images with those effects and look at them in Photos or on your computer in bigger size.

The new second page of effects has now few HDR specific effects that are very sensitive to the strength dial and produce anything from just a hint of tone-mapping to totally overblown HDR effect.
Those effects (like the little understood Ultra Contrast from previous version) are build with enough headroom for punchy images and are not really mean to be used with the dial all the way to the ceiling (this is probably what many people did in previous version with Ultra Contrast and disliking the overblown result).

Some tips: The HDR look works best on landscape and outdoor pictures especially with cloudy skies and lot of textures. This also minimizes the camera noise. Large flat surfaces without a texture are not a good match for this effect, nor are portrait photos, unless you are after particular effect.
We hope you will have fun with this app and take some amazing shots.

This of course is build for the Retina display, we wouldn't want it any other way. (some people asked).
We are committed to make this the best pseudo HDR app.

We have make the Dynamic Light for desktop as well. Check it in app store.

Superb Array of Flexible Filters

I've used Dynamic Light for a few years now and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I'm a huge fan of sky photos on Instagram and even the initial/default Dynamic Light filter that comes up when you first open an image is incredibly enriched and beautiful. But beyond simply providing filters, the good folks at DL also provide a full array of shade and color palette options that allow you to customize which aspects of your photos to highlight. It's a top-notch app that's simple, but effective and that contains layers beyond the obvious to play with. I've never once regretted purchasing this app and I consider myself a rather discerning app purchaser. Have fun - you won't regret it!

Plainfield Mafia

Plz update version to work with IOS 11

I love this app! I use it for most all my edits. It won’t let me use it anymore since Apple software did an update IOS 11. Would it be possible to update the version to work with the new software for Apple ? 😀


Best of the best

There's another app out there that I was hooked on (still love it but not as much) until I read about Dynamic Light in the Wall Street Journal. What a wonderful, creative tool this is. I love you.
