Just downloaded Oloneo, very easy to use and quick, for the beginner or expert HDR user

Installed fine with me but can't do anything with my shots. Keeps telling me I'm either out of memory [8Gb installed, Win7 64bit] or there's a problem with my so called corrupt files ... which all open fine in my usual programs. Tried 8 and 16 bit TIFFs but not bothered with JPEGs.

Fine using the default image files installed with program, but I don't want to print them Wink

Just uninstalled ... maybe I'll give it chance another time.

Well it's running very well for me and I'm really quite impressed. It's in beta so will obviously improve along the way.

Working well for me, here's a quick sample:

oloneo-hdr.jpg

Alnwick castle, 5 exposures 1 stop apart, hand held. Processed in Oloneo with auto align enabled. Just resize and sharpened slightly in PS for the web.

I really struggled to get anything out of this with Photomatix (gave up in then end), but got this result within a couple of minutes in Oloneo. Very quick to use and easy to pick up. Perhaps not the best image in the world, but a good test for the software.

Thanks to the OP for a heads up on this,it's always good to try new stuff.
It downloaded & installed for me fine.
Tried it with 3 lots of images,2 worked well & quite quickly with good results too,the other told me I had corrupt files Sad
Had a go with a couple of Raw files also & it coped well.
Comparing it with the results from Photomatix,there seems to be less of the 'cartoon' look about the results & the colours appear truer.
I think I will persevere with this program a bit longer.................coz I like them colour slider thingies Wink

Have you tried reloading them by clicking create again, or closing the program down and reopening it? I have and on both counts it reloaded correctly. I've filed a bug with them.

Nope,not tried that....but I will.
I suppose as it's still in the Beta stage of things there will be some probs ...to be expected. I hope they get them ironed out for October,when they say the Beta will expire & hopefully the 'proper' program will be available.

Just a very quick trial,I wanted to see how it coped with the whites & added an extra frame that was really 'blown' on his shirt....didn't do badly at all.

It seems to use up a lot of system memory, and that's when it crashes when it peaks on memory. It's at least twice as intensive as Photomatix, and gets worse on the second attempt, so closing and reopening refreshes memory (I assume). Complications aside (hopefully fixed in bug fixes) I'm liking it!

Would've thought that the 8GB on my system would've been enough ... anyone else using this software with Win7 64Bit successfully???
