iPhone apps I can't live without - Pro HDR

pro HDR

(Inspired by a Michael Thornton post about HDR photography...)

HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography doesn't have to be an expensive and complicated task that requires reading a camera manual.  If you have an iPhone, it's as simple as downloading the wonderful Pro HDR app.  Without any instructions you'll soon be taking great HDR pictures worthy of posting in your blog or adding to your MLS roll.

Pro HDR automatically takes multiple exposures, aligns them and blends them into one image.   All you have to do is frame the shot and hold the camera still for a few seconds.  When the blending is complete you have the option of making your own adjustments if needed, then save the picture to your library or share on the internet.

You can use:

  • Auto mode - just aim and click
  • Manual mode - take your own 2 pictures for cases of extreme contrast
  • Library mode - use images from your camera roll
You can choose what size to keep your pictures, and readjust to a smaller size when emailing.  You can also save the two original images that were used in the HDR process, and readjust them later if you desire.  The Settings and Help link will guide you through your choices and explain how it works.

All in all, it's a very simple app to use and learn, with great results.  It was only $1.99 at the App Store.  See some examples in their website gallery.

Compare these pictures taken with an iPhone 3GS.  The standard camera shot is dark and underexposed in the shadows.   With the app working, the scene is captured the way the human eye sees it, with a full range of brightness and shadow.  It works best for capturing still scenes, and waves are a little tricky.  Why not try it for yourself and see if you like it?

Oh my... I went to download it, the app description said it was for 3GS and 4, but then it wouldn't let me download it to my 3GS.  Bummer!  One more reason to upgrade to the 4, I guess.
