This is a MUST HAVE!

I am a photographer and currently use Photomatix as my HDR program and Photoshop as my primary editing software. I downloaded this HDRtist app just to see what it would do and I am amazed! It downloaded and installed in about a minute and launched perfectly. To create my first HDRtist high dynamic range image, I dropped in a three exposure set of images, (-1EV, even and +1EV), that I have already used in Photomatix and within a few seconds I had an HDR image. The image was definately HDR and VERY sharp! Obviously HDRtist does not have the editing capibilities of an expensive software like Photomatics but HDRtist did allow me to save the image in various formats, (including JPEG), which will let the user edit the image further in any software INCLUDING iphoto for the budding photographers just starting out and learning the photo editing ropes. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this app! And remember to have FUN!

Plesently surprised, especially because of the price.

My title says it all, I have used MANY different HDR programs on my PC, I finally got a Macso I was trying to hunt down a simple program for when I need to use HDR, this app is VERY simple to use, it is very quick to process the image, and UNLIKE many other expensive HDR programs, what you see in the preview is ACTUALLY what you get when the image has been processed. For free, It's second to none. Try it out, since it is free, you have nothing to loose!

Great Free Tool

Does exactly what it says it does. I prefer this over Photoshop, simply because of easy of use. I haven’t compared many, but when I did compare an HDR I made with this software and one I made with Photoshop I preferred the HDRtist version (if not, I liked them the same).

Easy to use and minimal problems. One time the software could not merge the three photos. Aligning photos takes a bit of time also, but overall a great product.
