Luminance HDR is a complete suite for HDR imaging workflow. It provides a wide range of functionalities, during both the fusion stage and the tonemapping stage. Its graphical user interface, based on Qt5, runs on a variety of platforms, such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X 10.9 and later and several Unix flavors (Linux, FreeBSD and others).

Input images can be supplied in multiple formats, from JPEG to RAW files. In the same way, output can be saved in many different formats as well, from JPEG to TIFF (both 8 bit and 16 bit per channel), enabling all the power of your post processing tools.

  • nice, this save me a lot of times

  • Very good app, but MSVC ?, well to avoid days of realignment from such specifics i just grabbed the src of QTpfsGui 1.9.3, and ran the pro file with QT creator, with only one issue detected in one ui file as a redundant string, easily detected in the first compile runs. QTpfs gui runs perfectly on the latest "split up" OpenEXR's src packages, all c++ compiled with -Ofast on top of QT compiled with -O3, can really recommend a try as it outperforms the here provided executables by all standards, have performed flawlessly for some 5 months now, even using psd's So I recommend this setup, as the only change needed was to resize the main gui to modern screen standards,think it will compile with mingw 4.6 and up, have only tested down to 4.7.3 Thereby not in any way disrespecting the code writings in this project Well done guys !

  • Just downloaded the software on my Mac with 10.08 version (the latest version available) but it is not opening up. I am downloading one more time hoping to eradicate any errors that might have popped in. Any advise where a mistake has been made or advise in opening the program.
