Photography, aka taking camera snaps is getting more and more popular with each passing day. This can be attributed to the smartphone market, which greatly outnumbers computers and professional cameras.
From sharing images of your food, pets, devices, cars etc on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc, to family albums, photos will always play an important role in our lives. But there are differences between a casual photo and one taken by a professional.
Yes, I’m talking about the quality of a photograph. Would you share a blurry or not very well focused photo with your friends? You can, they may not complain much. But do the same on a social network, and you will get some negative feedback. And this applies to official presentations too. Say you are some sort of designer, all you wouldn’t want to display a poor quality photo to your bosses or clients, would you?
Professional looking photos on the other hand have an adverse effect, it may grant you a great reputation. A picture is worth a thousand words. I think a flawless photo speaks volumes about the person who took them, for they must be a real pro photographer.
How do I make my photos look like they are taken by a professional?
It’s not enough to have a steady hand, and a DSLR camera, for your snaps to look like they are breath taking. You need some photo editing software to ensure the photos actually reach the quality. Fear not, for you can achieve this easily with the help of HDR Projects.
But first, what is HDR? It stands for High-dynamic-range imaging, which is a technique used to capture photos with more light, than there may actually be in a normal photo. For example look at the images below. One shows a same scene with little light, while the other is brighter and also more colorful. This is what a HDR image looks like, brighter and vivid.
The GUI of HDR Projects is clean. Special kudos to Franzis Software on this, as it helps the user greatly, so you can focus on your editing work without being distracted. Also, the interface is very user friendly, so you know where each option is located.
Full support for Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Interestingly, the installation process of HDR Projects detects the presence of both of Adobe’s software, and offers to install the plugins for those. What if you don’t have neither? No worries, you can still install HDR PRojects and use it on its own. Also, if you install the Adobe software later, you can install the plugins later.
Ease of Use and features:
Open an image and you will get the UI as shown below. On the left you have a set of settings (in a sidebar) which depends on the modes such as RAW Image Processing, Exposure Bracketing, and Post Processing. You can switch between these filters from the toolbar’s Edit menu.
There are a lot of Post Processing presets to choose from, and in most cases this will be enough to transform a dull image to a superb one. All HDR Projects images are saved in its own proprietary format (.hdrProject). You can save a final image with custom cropping, title and format (TIF, JPG, TIFF, PNG, JP2, EXR, HDR, TIF32, PFM)
The Right Sidebar has a magnifying glass (with a preview of the image), so you get a look of what the image looks like in a closer range. It also has the HDR and Ultra Algorithms and scenario controls for an incredibly simpler switch to different lighting effects.
Exposure Bracketing allows you to fine tune the details greatly, allowing you to light up areas in a photo.
The View menu lets you view the help info (about the various Windows), the EXIF information (Exchangeable image file format) which stores metadata information in the photo. This has all the info about the camera it was captured with, and also includes the date, resolution, aperture, location etc, and is often used by professionals to share information about a spectacular photo they clicked.
You can also check the histogram, and witch to Full screen view, from the same View menu, and also change the UI’s look a bit.
The Extras menu, lets you tweak the image’s HDR PReparation values. This includes the White Balance, Temperature, Noise Supression, Exposure Optimisation, etc. FYI, this window will be opened everytime you add an image too, so you can’t miss it.
How it worked:
I decided to put HDR Projects to the test, and the best way I could think of was by clicking a photo in low light conditions. This is what the real image looks like.
And the result of the HDR Projects post processing effect can be seen at the top of this article, wow, it is really amazing. It has all these cool effects which you can change to, in the click of a mouse.
