EasyHDR is an image processing software that produces and tonemapps High Dynamic Range images from photo sequences taken with a normal digital camera. EasyHDR can also tone map already created HDR images saved in Radiance RGBE (*.hdr) format or 48-bit and even 96-bit TIFF. You can also process RAW images from your camera by loading them directly into the program. Another great feature is single Low Dynamic Range (LDR) photo enhancement.
-blend a sequence of photos taken at different exposure values into a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image
-tone map HDR image into an 8-bit per channel REALISTIC looking result that can be displayed on computer screen or printed
-align the input photos using manual-alignment feature (compensates for shift, scale, rotation and PERSPECTIVE) or use auto-alignment feature, that compensates for shift as well as rotation
-adjust tone curve shape to fine-tune the contrast
-do post processing on the tone mapped result without any quantization losses - on floating point data (blur, sharpening, noise reduction, white balance, color tone adjust)
-convert and tone map RAW images from your digital camera
-load BMP, JPEG, 24/48/96-bit TIFF, FITS and Radiance RGBE file formats
-save as BMP, JPEG (without loosing EXIF headers), 24/48-bit TIFF or Radiance RGBE (.hdr)
-use batch processing option to automatically process tens of image sets without any user interaction
-language versions: English, Polski, Español, Deutsch, Français, ???????, Italiano & Português
+New tone mapping option - Local Contrast. The function allows to create much more 'dramatic' results, by strongly amplifying local contrasts. It is useful especially in case of scenes with cloudy sky or fine detailed textures. It is very sensitive, so making the effect too strong can bring out noise or JPEG compression artifacts, especially on flat surfaces like blue, cloudless sky.
+Full EXIF data transfer from JPEG, TIFF and RAW formats to JPEG and TIFF (installation of an additional program: EXIFTOOL is needed). << AVAILABLE FROM ME coming soon
+Color tone adjustment in post-processing. Possibility to tweak color saturation selectively for highlights and shadows as well as possibility to adjust color temperature.
-Improved histogram tool.
-Extended capabilities of the cropping tool.
-Improved image selection creation. Possibility to move the selection with the mouse while holding the Shift key.
-Choosing the preview in manual alignment: buttons instead of a combo-box.
-Hiding mouse cursor while moving pins in the manual alignment.
-After a cursor key is pressed while moving a pin in the manual alignment, the following mouse movements are not used for updating the pin position. Easier pin position fine tuning with the keyboard.
-Gamma correction when LDR enhancing RAW photos.
-Most recent version of DCRAW was added.
-Possibility to break batch processing.
-Extended capabilities of the 'Add Directory' feature in the batch processing.
-Possibility to manually edit the 'save to' path in the batch processing.
-Automatic tone mapping settings loading in the batch processing - when a task is selected on the list.
-Improved toolbox switching when the multi-tool option is selected in the 'Program Options' - useful in case of high resolution computer screens.
-Repaired bug with the Open Picture Window and thumbnail view - on some PCs (only 2 cases were known) the program just crashed when the 'Open' button was hit.
-Corrected problems with the main progress bar.
-Repaired a compatibility problem that prevented from running the program on Win95/98.
