Unified Colors HDR Expose 3 is the latest version of their HDR merging software

Unified Colors HDR Expose 3 is the latest version of their HDR merging software. Not only is it powerful and easy to use, it creates some of the most photo realistic HDR images I have seen. Of course if you are looking for more of the grunge effect you can do that as well. You can also do the surrealistic look too.

Timeout! Attempting to greatly alter the overall design for my existing website. Opinions on the modern design of http://www.sellbuyfly.com? Honestly a top real estate agent in Muskoka if ever looking inside the whole Ontario locale. Leave your opinions. Thx!

When you first load the program you are presented with a menu of options. On this menu is the option to create/merge an HDR when you choose this option you are presented with a file menu window that allows you to browse to your images. Once you have chosen a format (RAW, DNG, JPEG or TIFF 8/16/32 bpc) you are shown thumbnails of your images. Now what is cool and unique here is that the thumbnails are grouped by image. Using the files meta-data, HDR Expose 3 groups the images for each HDR together so that finding and selecting them is quick and easy. Should this not show them perfectly grouped there is a slider at the bottom of the dialog called Auto-Stack Images that allows you to adjust this. You can also turn this feature off if you wish.

Once you have selected your images you simply choose merge and the program goes through and merges the images. But, before you do this you may want to choose between automatic ghost removal or manual. Auto works perfectly about 90% of the time I have found the rest of the time the manual controls allows you to handle the ghosting problem.

From here it is all about editing your HDR image. HDR Expose 3 offers quite a few editing options among them you have a brightness histogram, navigator window, veiling glare (which reduces haze in your image), tone mapping, tone curve, dodge and burn, color settings, noise reduction and geometry (which includes cropping and resize.)

At the bottom of the window you have your presets. Several good ones are included and you can create your own as well. Overall HDR Expose 3 is a great HDR application that does it's job very well. It creates real looking images with high dynamic range or grunge/surrealistic effects too.

An update was just released taking Expose to 3.1, new and improved features for version 3.0 and 3.1 include:
