Qtpfsgui

HDR's and Tonemapping are getting a second wind (other blogs) and this one's getting a few kudos. I'm quite impressed with the results that you can get it and, though more then one image would yield better results, you can feed it a single jpeg and still do some fantastic things with it. The price is right too (open source).

Re: Qtpfsgui

I use this before I had Photomatix. It is great for the price but I feel Photomatix was a better bargain (IE I am happy I spent the money over using Qtpfsgui for free).

Re: Qtpfsgui

I've took try on Qtpfsgui it's very good for me(beginer) but there are some questions about 1st of all:

I made 9tifs from a raw, the exp slider (from lightest(+4) to darkest(-4) by steps -1 ) changed and Qtpfsgui couldn't recognise whitch was sequence, so couldn't i set it with the button for. Than i've tried on 3tifs (+1 to -1) and it was working.

If any of You know what is the problem please

Re: Qtpfsgui

At last i got my HDR but actually i made it on a PC (HDRShop). Somehow at the converting from raw, tifs got very starnge values for the exp. by qtpfsgui i couldn't correct them so there was a wrong order of the files. The tonemapping Reinhard 02 function worked well i think here you are the result

Re: Qtpfsgui

Hi Craig,

HDRShop sorts ldrs on a value gotten from exif if i'm right, i think this value changing on the exposure setting, at the exposure setting = 0 it got a number like 165.32 what i recognise in the hdrshop SORT column. Anyway i 'm very new about hdr things so maybe i did something wrong

Re: Qtpfsgui

I thought i would download this and give it a try ( didnt have much luck with photomatix probablt my fault ) well all i can say is give it a go, I have only tried the one image ( time as usual) also used the tonemapping ( missed the bit about size so resized in ps )
Hopefully will be able to have a go over weekend

have included the before and after image ( yes just the one jpg used, will have to try it with 3 or 5 later on )

just thought should of saved and posted just the hdr one sorry

Re: Qtpfsgui

Cool stuff Palms. It's fantastic that you can do Tonemapping with a single jpeg image. I just wish I had the equipment (camera, etc.) and patience to bracket a capture into several exposure settings and try it with Qtpfsgui, but I don't and am a lazy guy. lol
