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.

nice photo realistic results with ease

I have been stitching HDR landscape images from various cameras with HDRtist Pro. It took me a while to understand the program and learn to fine tune for a photo realistic look.
The program is producing the quality images want and is easy to use (bonus).

I outoput from HDrtist Pro in TIF format often without sharpening. Then clean up dust spots, sharpen and save. The TIF output has been very nice. The image alignment works well and has not been a problem in images. A few images have some halo effect if backlit with very bright light. That occurs in all HDR. A bit of room for improvement there maybe.

Overall, a very good easy to use HDR program. The output has been so photorealistic when I fine tune it has encouraged me to always use HDR for landscapes (dragging along the old tripod).

I look forward to updates and using the program more.

This application is like a fine wine

It keeps getting better with age. This is by far the best of the drag and drop applications I have ever purchased/won. Simple to use, wide format support & above all else, excellent customer support!

Easy to use HDR, Great results

Next to Photoshop this is by far the best HDR program available. Now that Photoshop is “subscription only” i’ve dropped it. This program works great for HDR needs, as well as Photoshop. It’s now my goto app for HDR.
