Testet your new release, Martin.

Works great (faster than before).
Looks apparently great on the screen - BUT - Cannot save!

Even after clicking 'continue' on the message-box, there is nothing in the sub-sub-sub-folders, all named "HDR" which the program continues to create on my disc.

Any suggestions...?

Default Perfect!! :^)

Well, it works!
Tested out version 1.142 and it works real fine. I just switched off the automatic Watermark-option under "Advanced" and I now could manage to save my processed file. I think this software i coming along pretty good and promises to become a useful addition to other HDR-softwares.

Below there are my samples of the finnished product - I have to go easy / reduce a bit on 'Detail' and maybe 'Contrast' as in this picture there is a bit too much information (details) fighting for attention, especially in the forteground. But I did choose a rather high detail-figure (7) - so this is my own fault.


My settings were:
Detail = 7
Contrast = 7
Colour = 7
Shadows = 6
Highlights = 6

The median-file, out of the camera, untouched except resized down to 1020x615






Thank you very much, Martin!

Well done!

Looks very nice Walter. I'll try and get to the bottom of the watermark problem.

Quick tip I've found useful is that if you're using a high detail setting, don't use a bicubic resize when resizing for the web as both tend to sharpen the image and when combined it can get too much.

Was just to fix a bug Walter had. Otherwise identical to 1.141beta but you can download it from: http://www.martinandanna.talktalk.ne...R1.142beta.exe

Default v1.143beta

Again, a bit faster and a bit cleaner. Will focus on some of the other loose ends for the next version.

Quick example with latest version - definitely over the top but I like it anyway:

v1.144 gives a slightly sharper image with better contrast and a slightly stronger HDR effect. I've also added some code around the processing step to give more useful information if it crashes.

pseudo-HDR created from a single exposure on the 'detailed' preset:
