One-shot HDR: HDR from a single photo with HDR Darkroom
A special feature within HDR Darkroom is one-shot HDR: Just a single shot in RAW format is all you need to create a perfect HDR photo. HDR Darkroom automatically calculates the required exposure bracketing from the RAW photo. It couldn't be easier! This is made possible thanks to the modern sensors in digital cameras.
Process RAW files directly in HDR 5 Darkroom
HDR 5 Darkroom supports RAW data from well-known manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic, as well as the universal RAW format, Adobe DNG. New camera models are supported thanks to regular updates. You can find a detailed list of supported camera types below.
Create classic HDR using exposure bracketing: this is how HDR Darkroom works
HDR Darkroom operates using a bracketed series of at least two images - there is no upper limit. These images are converted into genuine 32-bit HDR photos. In the process, the noise on the photos is reduced, and the images are superimposed and merged into HDR negatives. This HDR image can either be printed or displayed on screen.
HDR Darkroom's award-winning tone mapping
HDR Darkroom's special algorithm analyses the photos in a bracketed series and creates a vivid HDR image using data from all the available individual photos.
Powerful batch processing in HDR Darkroom
HDR Darkroom's batch processing routine works dynamically. Each image is analysed and converted accordingly, thus saving you countless hours of unnecessary manual adjustments. Hundreds of images - for example, all your holiday shots - can be left to process overnight.
With HDR Darkroom, you spend more time behind the lens and less time in front of the computer!
