About HDRtist Pro
HDRtist Pro, is easy to use HDR software for Macintosh computers. It has a simple yet streamlined workflow, with features such as 1-Click HDR editing. A live interface, where changes happen as the options are adjusted. The core engine processes HDR images using 128-bit floating point data (16,843,009 times more precise than a JPEG). The unique file format also allows HDRs to be saved and re-edited at a later date. Even JPEG files generated by HDRtist Pro can be re-opened and edited. With HDRtist Pro, it’s possible to create an HDR effect from a single RAW or JPEG image.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Exposure Blending make it possible to create highly detailed and ultra-realistic photographs with a digital camera. HDR works by combining exposure information using complex mathematics, while Exposure Blending works by simply selecting and cutting out the best parts of each photo.
