High dynamic range image generation and tone mapping.

Overview

With easyHDR, get your digital photos closer to what you've seen with your own eyes. Say goodbye to unwanted over- and underexposures. EasyHDR is an image-processing application that produces and tone maps High Dynamic Range images. You will get neat results even if the photos are taken in very difficult lighting conditions. An HDR image is produced out of a sequence of photos taken with different exposure settings. It has to be tone mapped, so it can be displayed on a computer screen or printed. If the photos are taken hand-held (without a tripod) the photo alignment tool (automatic as well as manual) can be used. It compensates even for perspective misalignment. Manual and automatic ghost removal allows fixing problems with moving people, cars, trees, etc. You get maximum control on the tone-mapping process by having a live preview of a photo at full resolution.

easyHDR is capable of these image formats:

  • JPEG
  • TIFF 8/16/32 bit
  • PNG
  • FITS (used in astrophotography cameras)
  • Radiance RGBE
  • OpenEXR
  • and nearly all digital camera RAW formats by all vendors

There is also a plug-in allowing integration with Adobe Lightroom 4 and later. If you have hundreds of photos to process, you'll also find batch processing very useful. Just create a task list, start processing, and wait for the results.

What's new in easyHDR

Version 3.14:
New features
  • Lens correction: added vignetting repair (coefficients from LensFun database),
  • Added defringing option (automatic and manual) - better chromatic aberration correction,
  • Added "Details" parameter in the "Local Contrast" tone mapping parameters - allows boosting details around distinct edges. Useful especially in combination with large "Range" values,
  • New "Balance" parameter for the "Temperature" and "Tint" settings - gives control over strength of white balancing for shadows and highlights.
Improvements
  • Added new presets and 2 sample LUTs,
  • Improvements in lens correction due to addition of vignetting compensation, possibility to apply different parameters for each photo in the HDR sequence (in the manual tool),
  • Lens correction tool as well as freehand crop/perspective/distortion tool - possibility to move the center point with mouse,
  • Faster painting with clone/healing tool,
  • Updated Lightroom plug-in, due to the new additions to the program,
  • Added option to disable default comment in result's EXIF (see in the "Program Options"),
  • Added new tag '%1' for default result file name - it translates into the first input image file name,
  • Main workspace: hold the space bar to force image panning, while other tools are enabled, like brush, crop tool, etc. (the space was used before to invert gradient in the layer's mask painting mode, now it's done with backspace),
  • Updated LibRAW (including new CR3 format support and more),
  • Updated Exiftool,
  • Updated LensFun database.
Other changes
  • Repaired loading grayscale JPEG image format,
  • Fixed EXIF transfer from/to files in paths containing characters outside of current locale.

I love this program!!! It amazes me that few people on the photography forums I inhabit know about it. Sure, it's Mac-only, but a lot of folks use Macs for photography these days. easyHDR is unrivaled (in my opinion) in turning one photo into a HDR. When using multiple photos (bracketed) it has always produced wonderful -- sometimes spectacularly better) results. A+++

I used the trial version, and I'm really impressed with the ease of use, no mess and confusion like in Luminar, which I tried too and deleted angrily after it made me tired and nervous in just 5 minutes. It's one of rare applications (like SwiftPublisher for example), which makes you love it within the first minutes of use.

Keeps Getting Better And Better! I can't think of a better piece of photo editing software at this low price! If you shoot in JPEG, this is a must-have. I shoot in RAW, and even then, easyHDR easily makes my photos pop -- with a minimum of work. Indispensable for any serious or semi-serious photographer!

This is a very high quality piece of software. It is powerful, quick and has great flexibility. It is definitely superior to most of its rivals. Try the demo. I trust you will be as surprised and pleased as I am.
