    "Huge improvement, great results"

    November 11, 2009  |   By deemery


    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Yesterday (by coincidence) I tried 1.0.0, and the resulting image was fuzzy. Today I saw this update, downloaded it, and tried the same images again. What is really significant for me is the inclusion of software to handle image alignment.

    The results were great! Fuzziness is gone, but I do have a bit of clean-up to do on the photo as a result of the alignment (I need to crop some artifacts from the edges of the images.)

    There are other tools that provide more control (here there's just a slide for 'strength') but if you want something to play with HDR, this is a great start.

    One point (from another tool's FAQ): When shooting bracketed images for HDR processing, you should shoot in an "Aperture Priority Mode" so that each image has the same aperture. This prevents problems caused when the camera in its default mode if it decides to shoot your set of images at different apertures (which will cause image alignment problems due to depth-of-field differences.)
