Here is an interesting webpage, ExposioHDR, an online HDR processing engine that uses cloud technology as it’s base. It reaches out to real estate agents as a way for them to create HDR images for the houses they put on the market. It is a very simple website that makes uploading easy, but it takes the tone mapping away from the user. I had a feeling that HDR would soon become automated, but I thought it would happen more widely in camera than on the web. Do us HDRtists have anything to fear with this new HDR processing webpage?
- Your photos are saved to the endless capacity of the cloud.
- Great for who it is intended for, real estate agents.
- Very clean interface and extremely user friendly.
- No over the top HDR look, the saturation is held true to the original exposure set and halos are avoided rather well.
- Since it is all internet based and uploading is part of the processing, it can take nearly 10 minutes to process one HDR photo on the average users internet connection.
- Does not process Raw files or Tiff files.
- No user tone mapping required, takes the art away from the user: Not good for avid HDR photographers.
- They did not spell developing correctly (developping HDR on their interface). This ruins the credibility of a website trying to sell something when simple grammar and spelling are incorrect. Spell check is free.
