Whether you've taken a series of images with different exposures or a single image, HDR Projects 8 does all the work to find a whole new dynamic for your images.

Simply search through over 180 image suggestions to find the one that suits you best, or customize your image to your liking.

  • Dynamic interface, absolutely ideal for UHD 4K

  • HDR technology , proven for 10 years, gives your photos high contrast, intense colours and finer details. HDR Projects allows you to combine several photos with different exposures and also to give a surprising HDR effect even if you only have one photo.

  • Alignment function for even sharper HDR images with bracketing
  • 124 automated presets make it easier to approach HDR. These presets have been specially optimised for noise behaviour. Remove noise and colour cast from your images. The presets, divided into 10 categories ("Natural" to "Artistic"), ensure HDR images with completely different styles.

  • Colour filter module : The colour filter module in the “Selective drawing” area provides 8 digital colour filters: red, orange, yellow, green/yellow, green, cyan, blue and purple.
  • Post-processing effects for more creative editing.
  • Fast performance for smooth operation even with large files.
  • Smart exposure analysis. To make it easier to find blurred or poorly exposed images, HDR Projects 8 can analyse a range of images individually to quickly find blurred or poorly exposed images.
  • Focus peaking module: This module analyses the focus of your image taken with your camera and shows the sharp areas of the image. These are marked in blue and therefore allow you to quickly see if a picture is too blurred in order to remove it.

  • Colour Module with Eyedropper: This impressive new module is one of the most important new features and manipulates colours in the best sense of the word.

    The new colour module lets you set selective colour accents without having to select the colour range. Simply click the colour to be changed using the colour picker and select another segment in the colour wheel.
