High dynamic range photography has taken off in a big way and it’s a great way to get more out of your pictures. It requires a bit of forward planning to pull of if you’re doing HDR proper, but you can still get a similar effect with products like Akvis HDRFactory.
Using a single photo, you can use a psuedo-HDR technique that gives you the HDR look without requiring multiple exposures of an image. It’s a pretty slick setup all around.
Of course, just because HDRFactory can fake HDR pictures doesn’t mean that’s what you have to do. Those looking for true HDR will be happy to see a suite full of features for creating these images. It boasts ghost removal tools, a wide range of adjustments and more.
HDRFactory 2.0 is available now from Akvis. Registered users of the older version can download the new one free.
