Pretty good, significant limit

I bought this to compare with Pro HDR X. HDR apps have a problem with halos in areas of high contrast. It's ugly. You get what look like smudges in th sky and in other areas of flat color or tone. Based on sample pictures, I thought this app might do that less than Pro HDR X. It doesn't. It also doesn't create the range of exposure that Pro HDR X makes. True HDR uses only two exposures, versus three for Pro HDR X. There's not as much information to work with, so the range is narrower. On the plus side, True HDR is good at aligning images, something Pro HDR X has trouble with. This is valuable in low light, when exposures are longer and the combination of exposures happens over a longer period of time. True HDR also has more natural color, which may or may not be what you want. Pro HDR X pumps the color, so you get those gorgeous images with blue blue skies and green green trees and grass. It's a little much. True HDR is good for getting a wider range of exposure than a single shot, it aligns multiple images well, and it uses more natural color. If you want a wider range, try Pro HDR X and--if you don't like candy-store color--adjust the saturation down.

Very cool app

I got this app probably close to ten years ago now. I really enjoy it. It can be a bit of a pain for certain images as it requires a tripod for some shots. But it’s a lot of fun to play around with. Besides making hdr images, you can also mix unrelated images together for a cool effect. Very cool app!

True HDR

One of my favorite apps...
Results are not foolproof but when you understand the capabilities along with the limits you can come up with some terrific images that are otherwise not possible. There are some great creative potentials as well, that go beyond the primary function of capturing the wide range of lighting dynamics, inherent in many shooting situations, inside to outside and shadow to full light. One can use the 'manual' function to great effect layering discreet images into a single merged photo. Buy it... You'll like it!
