Unsatisfied with your pictures? You can make them more beautiful with PC World’s gift software

HDR is popular for a reason, but it is difficult to make a really good HDR image. Franzis HDR Projects 5 helps you make your good photos even better.

Did you take a lot of photos during the summer, but somehow none of them are the ones you would hang on your wall in large size? You may just need a little post-work and you will already have a wonderful result. The special application of Franzis, known for its professional editing programs, helps with this.

Fashionable image enhancement

The HDR effect is not new, but nowadays it is popularly used either in movies or in mobile phone cameras. If you manage to record a high-quality HDR image or video, the brighter and darker parts will look good, while the contrast will remain satisfactory and the color accuracy will not be distorted. Unfortunately, the picture taken in automatic HDR mode is not always perfect with a mobile phone, so it is worth using Franzis HDR Projects 5.

This application is able to select the necessary information from underexposed and overexposed images, and then create a new photo, now enhanced with HDR, based on this information. In order to achieve a high dynamic range, in addition to images taken with different exposures, special procedures are also needed (tonemapping, exposure blending, etc.), but these are already offered by the software. HDR Projects 5 provides the best results if you already create suitable SDR images and combine them in the software, but if you only expect it to improve a single image, it will also try to help with this. For this, it offers countless predefined profiles, which you can fine-tune as you wish, and you can compare the original image with the converted one in real time.

The user interface of the program is very complicated, you have to spend a little time to navigate between the English menus, but fortunately there is an explanation for every setting and button, and if you don’t like a change, you can go back at any time. If you have found the perfect setting, you can force HDR Projects 5 to perform batch operations.

If you want to use it yourself, then buy the 2022/09 PC World magazine published on September 2, which includes Franzis HDR Projects 5 as a gift, as well as other valuable software and a PC game – for subscribers, two days earlier.
