To overcome a limitation with digital photography, HDRtist NX 2 takes a series of exposures captured with your camera, combines them into a single large image. Allowing you to process this data down into a stunning, highly detailed image, suitable for displaying on Mac, Phone or online.
Polaris is our 8th generation tone mapping engine, she was designed from the ground up to do one thing and to do it well; create stunning detail enhanced HDR images, while she compresses the huge dynamic range into an a beautiful HDR rendering that you'd be happy showing friends & family.
The entire rendering pipeline, has been built to handle 32,000 times higher resolution than a regular photo editor or fake HDR app. NX 2 uses all this extra data to enhance colors & extract the tiniest of details.
Polaris is smart enough to detect areas of high contrast & process them accordingly. Resulting in far more recovered detail, with almost no blown out highlights & burned shadows. For those who like these "Halos", we've left you a slider.
1-Click Styles are synonymous with Ohanaware products since 2008, HDRtist NX 2 features over 30 1-Click Styles. 1-Click Styles are a fantastic way to start with editing HDRs, and to help save time when applying the same style to multiple images. They're also a great way of getting inspiration for how you'd like the final HDR to look.
NX 2 launches with over 20 built-in extras. They're called "Extras", because they add extra functionality to HDRtist NX 2. Ranging from controls with more options than standard, to a collection of stylistic processes.
Whether you shoot multiple exposures with a DSLR or snapshots with a phone; HDRtist NX 2 has the functions you need to deliver stunningly detailed HDR images. Multiple exposures are recommend for better quality.
Included in HDRtist NX 2 is our most advanced cropping system to date. Including a collection of fixed aspect ratios, and fixed sizes i.e. Instagram 1080x1080 and Freeform control for those who like to tear up the rules. Custom aspect ratios or sizes can be added. Includes a new "Switch" function for swapping the orientation of the crop.
Since HDRtist Pro, we've offered the ability to save HDRs as editable files. HDRtist NX 2 expands on this with a "Save History", allowing you to revert to a previous version, whenever you need to. Previous versions can be favored and given descriptive names.
We absolutely love having a huge high resolution preview, so we spent a lot of time reducing clutter and moving the options over into the sidebar, while still keeping easy access to features that are not always needed.
Another great feature in NX 2's interface, is the ability to auto-hide the window Titlebar & Sidebar. These two elements can be auto-hidden independently or both at the same time, again maximizing the onscreen preview.
While making natural looking HDR images, the medium exposure helps keep the processing grounded. NX 2 provides both our Split-View and Side-By-Side view; where the medium and processed images are intelligently displayed next to each other.
We added an option to maximize window size to give the largest preview, without obscuring everything. We also added keyboard shortcuts to make a window fill just one side of the screen, allowing for easy comparison.
