"Huge improvement, great results"

November 11, 2009  |  By deemery

 |  Version: HDRtist 1.1


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.)

"Cute, Simple"

October 03, 2009  |  By StoughMA

 |  Version: HDRtist 1.0


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
HRDtist is a simple, fun program for the beginning HDR photography artist. It has only one control, a slider, which sets one of four tone mapping algorithms (or a blend of any two contiguous algorithms). The Save command is slow as the program apparently re-renders the blended image, re-applies the chosen algorithm, and writes to disk. (Ref: 24" iMac 2.8 GHz Intel Core Duo Extreme). Fun to use for quick looks but if you need more control, look to other products.

What's new in version 1.1
Align image button, that'll attempt to align the source images when clicked. It uses "align_image_stack" by Harry van der Wolf http://www.harryvanderwolf.dyndns.org/ HDR generation is not only faster, but now produces better results. Added an E-mail support option directly into the program. Fixed the pesky white box problem. No longer crashes sometimes when it can't open an image. Now remembers window position.
