No ones telling anyone off ,the idea that those images in the hdr pool came from that software is misleading .
Just pointing out some facts.
Great thread btw.

I'm trying out the trial version.
Do you have an opinion of this product at this point?

I use PSCS3 and Photomatix at present. Also have Lucis Art.

Thanks, Don

I like Wukong (They seem to have changed the codename Wukong to Essential HDR ). It really faster and produce more clear images comparing with Photomatix.

here is the beta test download link (need to register first):

Let me know your opinion after the try.

Re: List of HDR and Tone Mapping Software

As a (primarily) food photographer, my workflow is to bracket my shots by adjusting the flash output over only 1/2 to 1 stop either side of correct, then combine using hdr to capture full details in highlights and shadows. I've always used PS's HDR to do this but am starting to test out others so this thread is particularly interesting to me. So far tested photomatix, qtpsfgui and Dynamic photo HDR. Up to now I have to say I prefer qtpfsgui over the other two, but will be checking out some of the others mentioned here. I should point out I'm after realistic increased dynamic range, not surrealistic effects (can't do that with food). I also use PowerRetouche's dynamic range plugin. Thanks guys for this thread.

Re: List of HDR and Tone Mapping Software

franko60, as a photographer I would try to use a LM in your case:

If you have good lighting it should be a question of a few seconds - when you will get familiar with LM.

Re: List of HDR and Tone Mapping Software

Thanks CR. I do use luminosity masks but generally find I have better success with negative masking (can't give you a url as it's a digital adaptation of an old darkroom technique) - basically a blurred inverted layer above the image layer in one of the contrast modes. It's the amount of blur that's critical and differs for every image.

I guess I should say that I individually evaluate my arsenal of techniques for each image, and often don't need any work at all other than sharpening as I'm usually shooting in a controlled studio environment. But - the more tools I have at my disposal, the more likely I am to find precisely the right one for a particular image.

cheers

franko
