Dynamic Photo HDR is a high dynamic range photo creation and optimization tool. An HDR image is usually made from a few different photos, which were taken with different exposures. This application can combine multiple photos into an HDR image. These tend to look way better than any single photo. In addition to creating these photos, Dynamic Photo HDR can improve and optimize your HDR shots with some automatic tools.
The first step of the process is to load your images. You can do this by clicking on "Create HDR file". A new window will come up, where you can select the files that you want to add. After that, an HDR simulation will be created. You can compare side-by-side what the regular images and the HDR image look like. In this window, you can select one of four processing modes. The available options are HDR Tonemapping, Fusion Blending, Complex HDR Fusion, and HDR Video. The names sound a bit confusion, but, thankfully, there are video tutorials on the website that explain what each of these modes do. After the image has been created, you can view it in full size and continue to align it and edit it to your liking.
It should be noted that Dynamic Photo HDR is not a native Mac application. The developers chose to virtualize this Mac release instead of writing a new application specifically for it. As a result, the graphical user interface is incredibly slow and doesn't look good at all. There are frequent crashes as well.
- Good editing and optimizing options
- Not a native app
- Frequent crashes
- The graphical user interface is unresponsive and the text isn't clear
