For reference, this is a picture I've had trouble with in previous versions.
All resized, unsharp mask for web. The AutoHDR versions are on the detailed setting with normal edge-safe smoothing.

#1 is OOC, #2 is with v1.130 and #3 is with the new v1.131. There is a significant improvement in the sky in particular with no noticeable loss of detail in the rest of the image:

#1 OOC


#2 Old, #3 new

Did this in St. Louis a few weeks ago.


I use my regular HDR software a lot less than I used to.

Wow! Thanks for turning me on to this program.

I applied them to these winter Chicago shots I took last week.

Glad you like it
I'm only viewing them on my phone but the second one in particular looks very nice and the latest version handles those blue skies much better.

m.sykes has been kind enough to provide this "freeware" with an option (in Advanced) to embed or not the web site url. nonetheless, it adds some fields to the exif giving program name and version. just so you know. (i'm totally fine with that).

Since i really like the results obtained by using this program, i've noticed a couple of more things that bug me. when i start it, and then drag/drop several images on it, there's no indication that it got more than the one it displays. of course, clicking the process button shows a count i.e: 1 of 7...etc. i'd suggest displaying "1st image of 7", then "2nd....", etc. also, i wonder if it would be possible to adjust the settings prior to loading an image? sort of, priming the pump.
thanks for taking the time to read/consider all the remarks on this forum too...

I love this program. I layered the original shot under the HDR image, and adjusted the transparency until I got the look I wanted. Thanks again for writing it.
