HDRtist is easy to use HDR software, that creates HDR photos and tone maps them in a single step. An intuitive design makes it simple to choose from our 4 different tone mapping techniques. Even if you're not into HDR photography, HDRtist is a great tool to have for dramatizing dull photos, livening dark photos and boosting sunsets! We've included some HDR tutorials to help you get started with the amazing world of HDR photography.

This is fantastic. Just drag in your three photos and there's your result. I had a fantastic image really easily first time. Just like Mac software should be. I'm aware this sounds like a fake review but it's real, I promise, I'm really impressed.

Okay, obviously there are fake reviews but still this is an excellent program for tweaking images that have too much contrast, when there is no more detail in shades an lights. When I use it I just prepare three pictures from a raw file in tiff, one with correct metering one underexposed and one overexposed, then the program mixes them for me and I just push the slider to where I want. Personally, I still want the result look like a photo, but if you push further you can obtain something as hyperrealistic as Dali's dreams.

After loading 1.3.1 all I see is a bouncing icon. The program doesn't start beyond that now. I just upgraded from OS X 1.6 to 1.7 so maybe that's part of the problem.

Don't let the spam reviews bother you, this program is legit. I've alerted the MU admins to the problem.

I don't know if this works for other OSX applications...
I discovered that if I copy this app. and rename the original "HDRtist 1" and the copy as "HDRtist 2", I can run both simultaneously and process two photos at once. What a time saver !!

Just needed something simple to combine iPhone 4 HDR shots. Feature set isn't what you might get with paid programs, but this is stable and works as described. Exactly what I needed.

I tried a couple of HDR programs, and was most pleased with HDRtist. My images were shot freehand, so there were little alignment errors. HDRtist was able to resolve them where other (more expensive) programs were nowhere near as effective. This may not provide you with as much control over image merging as other choices, but if you want a drag-and-drop simple to use program, this is an excellent choice.
