What it is

Luminance HDR is a graphical user interface (based on the Qt5 toolkit) that provides a complete workflow for HDR imaging.

Supported HDR formats: * OpenEXR (extension: exr) * Radiance RGBE (extension: hdr) * Tiff formats: 16bit, 32bit (float) and LogLuv (extension: tiff) * Raw image formats (extension: various) * PFS native format (extension: pfs)

Supported LDR formats: * JPEG, PNG, PPM, PBM, TIFF, FITS

Supported features: * Create an HDR file from a set of images (JPEG, TIFF 8bit and 16bit, RAW) of the same scene taken at different exposure setting * Save and load HDR files * Rotate and resize HDR files * Tonemap HDR images * Projective Transformations * Copy EXIF data between sets of images * Supports internationalization

Raw image formats are supported - and treated as HDR - thanks to LibRAW.

Make sure you read the "Dependencies" Section in the file. If you intend to make a package for a GNU/Linux distribution, please refer to the same file for more information.

The code is in part based on the existing open source packages: - "pfstools", "pfstmo" and "pfscalibration" by Grzegorz Krawczyk and Rafal Mantiuk - "qpfstmo", by Nicholas Phillips.

Without their contribution all of this would have not been possible.
