HDR projects

HDR projects 7 professional offers many new features. Here is a summary of some of the most important developments:

New ultra-HDR mode „Highlight Boost”:

New tonemapping:
The new tonemapping „Retina” offers colour fidelity and a „tonal value” which matches the human eye’s colour perception. It is particularly suitable for pictures with high contrast. To access „Retina” in the Post-Processing-Mode, simply enter “expert” in the search bar.
