Best Free High Dynamic Range (HDR) Software

January 9, 2010

One of the latest trends in photography is high dynamic range photos. Typically you’ll take multiple exposures of the same scene and then use special software to use the best bright areas and best dark areas from different photos to end up with one great picture. Some photographers hate the trend, while others embrace it. I guess the best answer I can give is one I saw in the last week. Non-photographers love the images that result. If you want to make money from your photos then you’ll goal should be to deliver what customers want. Today, that is HDR.

The folks at Gizmo’s Freeware have put together a list of the Best Free High Dynamic Range (HDR) Software that you might want to peruse. Of course you do often get what you pay for. So while there may be some good choices on this list, the best solution could be a commercial tool such as Photomatix Pro. Of course you can download a free trial version before deciding to purchase a copy. Whatever software you choose, I hope that you use it to create some really cool photos.
