Starting this group topic to discuss different HDR software packages and compare. Also to link to a new package I've just disovered.

We all know about Photomatix for HDR, but what about the other ones out there - do they give better reuslts, are they easier to use?

I've just seen alink on another website to a new HDR tool called Oloneo. There is a Beta version available at their website . If the publicity is to be believed, this could be a great new tool. Hpefully I'll be able to download and play with it tonight.

Thanks for the heads up Martin, I have used Photomatix since their early beta versions but am always interested in comparing other software.

Having just watched their videos all I can say is 'Wow'. I can see the villagers lighting their torches and sharpening their axes already! Smile

They won't need to light all their torches at the same time though Ian, you could always do that later by the look of it!!! Grin

Very interesting videos indeed ... might have a butchers meself, cheers Martin.

Just downloaded and had a quick play with a single image...(it crashed on a four shot hdr), but the single image was amazing how fast it works to tone map. very big bright graphics too makes it intuitive to use

Haven't checked out this new software yet but I will do later.

I've used Hugin for panorama stitching before. I think Hugin is capable of doing HDR too using Enfuse to do the exposure blending.

So Hugin and Enfuse are two pieces of software worth checking out too. Possibly linked to Enblend too.

I use HDR software by Mediachance


You can download a full version of the software which puts a line of text on the very bottom of the image but what i do is to increase the canvas size by a few cm just on the bottom of the image/images before processing,then crop it off the finished hdr file,you can of course buy the full product which then of course omit`s the text,which of course you should do, but i just do the odd hdr image and this works for me.Smile

I've been a photomatix devotee, used another brand once but took so long to process things on my laptop that I binned it

I think you should give this a go Adrian. Strikes me it could be better than Photomatix. I'd be interested in your opinion.
