Dynamic Photo HDR (high dynamic range imaging) is software that adjusts photos and smoothes out imperfections such as focus problems and distortions. The bane of most amateur photographers, "ghosting" on moving objects, can be eliminated when using Dynamic Photo. |
One unique feature of Dynamic Photo is "Pin Warping" that can correct misalignment and camera roll, yaw or pitch. It's a new technology that sees an image much like a piece of stretched out material. Pin Warping pins down one part of that image, aligns it then moves on to another and so forth. This sounds time consuming but it actually takes only a few minutes. When the process is done you have a perfectly aligned image.
Dynamic Photo's strong point is that is has been kept as simple as possible. Users don't have to constantly adjust parameters and the instructions and processes are easy and straightforward. Its Tone-Mapping features a "Real-time Light Tuner" that lets you change the Tone-Mapped effect and see it right away.
Another unique feature Dynamic Photo has that other software doesn't is Match Colors. Rather than change the colors of your photo you can present an image such as a painting that has combinations you'd like to see in your photo. This can be the way the sun shines on the leaves of a tree, leaf colors in a fall scene or the hue of a puddle of water. It's a subtle change but can make a big difference in the atmosphere a photo projects.
The eye sees things a digital camera can't - shades, textures, nuances of light. In fact a camera can see only 1/4 what the human eye can see, nearly 24 f-stops while the camera has a range of only 6-9 f-stops at it's optimal settings. HDR imaging overcomes limitations of digital cameras by combining several images into one. It can be used to add extra vibrancy to single images, too.
