Ratings and Reviews

Wonderful app for amateur photographers exploring HDR


I purchased this app (version 1.0) on impulse, and am very happy that I did. It does exactly as it claims: takes your bracketed photos and combines them quickly (well, it’s quick on my late 2013 MacBook Pro) into a usable HDR of your pics. The alignment is done for you, and thus far has been very accurate. Then, I export the result to MacPhun’s Intensity Pro app for final tweaking, and sharpening, and then to Photoshop. Intensity Pro is a wonderful partnership with this app, and the final output of your HDR photo.

This program is relatively intuitive to use, which is important because at the time of writing this review there is little available in English. The existing program manual is only available in French. But don’t let that stop you from trying the program. After all, you can always use Google Translate.

I’d love to see more tweaking options on the right side of the program menu. Currently the output controls are minimal, but since I export to Intensity Pro for the end result I’m personally not concerned about this. However, others may want more controls to be at their finger tips.

Bottom line: This app is intuitive, no crashes, quirky but usable pop-up tips to help you get started, provides great results, and so I’d say this developer has a winner on his hands. I look forward to seeing this first release continue to improve over time.

Great concept - Crashes too much


I have the newsest iMac, all the bells and whistles, 3 terrabyte fusion drive, and 16 megs of ram. This program crashes too much.
If it didn’t crash, this program would save you a lot of time, and the concept is not only brilliant, it starts you out on the right foot
by assuming you want photorealistic results, instead of the regular HDR slop.
I would call version 1.2 to still be in Beta, going by my personal experience.
When it works, it’s brilliant. When it doesn’t, it wastes my time.
I’ve had Photomatix Pro for quite a long time. The program has NEVER crashed on me.
I understand PP has a crew coding for it, and this is by one guy, but still...
I hate saying it, because the author of this program is awesome. I LOVE his approach, and love the program.
Just needs to get more stable. Again, based on my experience, 1.2 should be labeled BETA.

I havent used it much, but I really like it so far. I love having the brushes, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add a temperature/tint slider and a temperature/tint brush. That would be awesome!!!
