HDR image processing[edit]

The functionality of easyHDR with respect to HDR image processing includes

  • image alignment (manual and automatic), compensating for shift, rotation, scale and perspective,
  • HDR ghost effect removal,
  • noise filtering,
  • layers (masking with brushes and gradient tool).

LDR enhancement[edit]

In case of a single low-dynamic-range (LDR) photograph, which often is missing details in highlights or shadows, the tone mapping of easyHDR may be used to increase contrast and refresh colors. This is in particular the case when developing raw images.[2][3]

Making-of[edit]

EasyHDR was developed by Bartłomiej Okonek in 2006, then studying at Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland, in particular for use in astrophotography.

The HDR generation and tone mapping algorithm is also used by FARO Scene LT point cloud viewing software.[5]
