Gizmo’s Best Free High Dynamic Range HDR Software.

Digital photography is a wonderful technology, but it’s not very good at handling scenes that are comprised of both very dark and very brightly-lit areas. The human eye is superb at this, but the sensors in digital cameras are not.

But, there is way to overcome this problem; It’s called HDR photography. HDR photography works by combining several photos of the same scene, taken at different exposure settings, into one photo. The details of dark areas (from a longer-duration exposure) are combined with the details of brightly lit areas (from a shorter-duration exposure). The result is a single photo that is correctly exposed in both the dark and light areas; it not only looks like it is correctly exposed, it also looks more dimensional.”

Gizmo continues this feature with his reviews of the best software.
