Image created in HDR Expose – Click for a larger view
Just this week DxO Labs announced a new HDR plug-in for their new Optics Pro 6.5 software (press release here). This follows the release of Nik software’s HDR Efex Pro earlier this month. Whether or not you love or hate HDR, the one thing that is hard to deny is that HDR is not a passing phase. In fact several camera manufaturers have even started incorporating HDR functionality right in their cameras. Even Apple has gotten into the act by adding an HDR function to the iPhone 4.
I have several HDR programs that I use to create my images including HDR Expose, Photoshop CS5, and Photomatix, but there are numerous offerings out there to choose from. So I thought I would ask you, what is your HDR program of choice. Vote in the poll below and then check out what everyone else is using.
