HDR Software Review
Best HDR Software
I use HDR for about 70% of my photography and I’ve tested every imaginable HDR software product available. Some are free and some cost money. Regular fans of the site know that I only review and recommend software that I actually use.
Do you primarily use a Mac to edit your photos? If so, then check out Aurora HDR Pro! I worked with Macphun for over a year to build the ultimate HDR software! If you’re primarily a Windows user then I would definitely use Photomatix Pro. I’ve used and recommended Photomatix Pro for many years. They gave me a Photomatix Coupon Code of “TREYRATCLIFF” that will save you 15%.
I have a FREE HDR Tutorial for Mac or HDR Tutorial for Windows here on StuckInCustoms.com that describes the step by step process. If you’d like to dive deeper, I also have video tutorials for Aurora HDR Pro on a Mac and a separate one for using Photomatix Pro on Windows. Both tutorials show how I use the tools for a variety of situations… landscapes, sunrise/sunset, people, motion, etc..
You do not really need a special type of camera, but I do have my HDR Camera recommendations here on the site. There is a bit more detail there, in addition to a description of my own personal gear.
Below, I have put a few photos of both the software being used and some of the results.
