Default PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate's Single RAW HDR good?

Description says:

"...the Single RAW Photo feature allows you to split an individual RAW file into three images and then selectively recombine them to create an HDR-style effect."

I understand the way it works is you load a single RAW image then Paintshop Pro X5 automatically splits it into 3 images of varying eVs. If it works as described then I think even for that feature alone it's worth the $15 download price.

Has anyone tried this feature? I don't think you can download a trial version for X5 anymore because X6 is out.

Yes I've used it a couple of times, just processed this one as an example using default settings. Some of the defaults can produce quite lurid colours.

Original, no processing other than to resize and save as jpeg



RAW file split with +-2ev and default processing applied, then resized and converted to jpeg

Nice result! I like it. I'm downloading now. I know it will come in handy when I can't mount a tripod and have to take single shot RAW. Thank you, Mike.
