The Best Apps for HDR Photography

HDR photography brings out an amazing amount of detail in photographs by taking three or more shots at different exposure settings and combining them into one picture. The end result is a high resolution photograph that brings out the details in even the darkest portions of the shot.

Create beautiful full-resolution HDR (high dynamic range) pictures with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch

This app is much like Pro HDR, except that you get to control which parts of each shot will be the “light” and the “dark” part. The down side is that you don’t get the sliders that allow you control the light after the pictures are combined. It’s a matter of personal preference which of the two is better.

HDR Photo Camera

HDR Photo Camera

Intellsys s.r.l.

NEW: HDR Photo Camera includes remote control for Apple Watch

Create the most amazing photos with the most accurate and advanced HDR processing engine.

We do more than just superimposing images. Our multilevel engine preserves details and textures, generating for you realistic and professional quality images.

In short: HDR Photo Camera takes three photos at different exposure levels (bracketing) and then it combines them, using the exposure fusing technique, into a single high dynamic range image.

The best results are obtained when the scene includes both dark and bright areas, such as taking pictures of a tall building against a blue sky, of the sunset into the sea or of some beautiful cloud formations.

Application features:
* multilevel HDR processing engine
* three operation modes: Classic camera (single frame), HDR (bracketing + processing), Bracketing only
* automatic/manual exposure points
* single focus point (advanced settings)
* geo-tagging
* exif metadata
* pinch to zoom
* focus lock (when supported by the device)
* independent focus and exposure points
* instant preview
* HDR batch processing (The only application capable of capturing multiple sets of bracketed photos and processing them later with a press of a single button.)

Extra download:

"Mobile HDR" application shares the same HDR engine with "HDR Photo Camera" and in addition has the following complementary features:

* adjustable contrast, saturation and "exposedness" parameters
* automatic and manual ghost artifacts removal
* working resolution 16M pixels
* input images can be picked from Photos library or (for iPad) from external photo camera, memory card, etc.
