Splendid natural scenery and well-thought-out composition do not always translate into great photos. Often times, photos have blown highlights and dark shadows. Details once seen by naked eyes are lost by the camera.
Not any more!
Introducing Essential HDR™ (code name Wukong), a computer software from Imaging Luminary. Take two more photos: one over-exposed, one under-exposed. Drag&drop all three photos into the Essential HDR™ software.
The Detail Revealer™ tonemapping engine will extract information from all three source photos and recompose every single pixel to produce a high quality, naturally-looking output.
This is the power of High Dynamic Range (HDR) Tonemapping! If you are new to this topic, please visit our Support Center for a quick overview. Essential HDR™ has a simpler, easier, and quicker tonemapping process than ever before. Depend on your taste, the result can be very versatile: photo-realistic, surreal, or somewhere in between.
Download the free Community Edition today, and try for yourself. Or, take advantage of the 30% off sale before it ends. You, too, can create photos with exceptional detail, beautiful color, and a finish that a Pro would be proud of!
