HDRtist is the easiest HDR software program for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or Later

HDR Free & Easy

Meet HDRtist, the easiest HDR software program for the Mac, thanks to it's intuitive design & streamlined interface. Mac HDR Software will never be the same.

Easy to use HDR Software

Shooting HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photos can be great fun, we wanted a program that would be easy and just as fun to use. So we made one.

Getting your exposures or photos into HDRtist, is a breeze. Drag your photos into the HDRtist window or use the "Add Photos" button and multi-select the photos (On Leopard or Snow Leopard, you can select photos directly from your iPhoto or Aperture library). Next; use the single "Strength" slider to get a stunning result you're happy with. It's that easy, great looking HDR photos in seconds.

Multiple Mapping Techniques

One of the biggest challenges of HDR Photography can be getting the HDR the way you like it.

Thats not the case with HDRtist, We spent a long time learning and exploring HDR tone mapping techniques. We've hooked them into our engine in way that we think, just makes sense.

Use the Strength slider to choose which HDR tone mapping method to use, or even a combined technique with it's nearest neighbor. Our 4 different Tone Mapping methods, range from compression, light, realistic to extreme. See Examples

Spend more time outside shooting HDR photos when using HDRtist at home.

Great For Single Photos

Sometimes the situation just doesn't allow you to take multiple exposures, don't have time to set-up the tripod, or the wind's too strong, or there's too much movement. No worries, simply take a single JPEG or RAW and let HDRtist work it's magic on your photo. This is sometimes known as simply tone mapping a photo or creating a fake HDR, or just FHDR.

What ever it's called, HDRtist does it well, making juicy HDRs out of regular photos. On top of that HDRtist can be used to recover dark, dull and lifeless photos.
