Unified Color Technologies, the experts in high dynamic range imaging (HDR), announced the launch of HDR Expose, its next generation software for the creation and editing of HDR images. The software replaces the company’s flagship product, HDR PhotoStudio; and offers a plethora of new features, including: the addition of interactive HDR histogram, digital color readout, multiple ghost reduction options, plug-ins for Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture, and a new user interface. The software provides full 32-bit color editing capabilities.
HDR Expose retains all the features users have depended on: complete control of contrast, shadow and highlights while preserving the maximum color spectrum; a comprehensive toolbox that addresses some of the common difficulties in HDR photography like noise reduction and veiling glare adjustment; and image compression with Unified Color’s native file format, .BEF. The software also includes a .BEF-converting plug-in to directly return the resulting images to Photoshop for additional editing.
