High dynamic range (HDR) art photography includes shooting a scene with different exposure settings and combining with each other in order to result in an image with greater brightness than normal. Several multi-purpose editors have special tools for this task, but dedicated HDR processing helps you to deliver the result beyond your expectation.

HDRengine of Oleneo gets started in the Browse mode for you to locate your images. It will be better with folder browsing but resizable previews, EXIF data presentation and Recent Projects keep your stuffs neat and tidy. Raw files are well supported, with its ability of light and shadow restoration which is often stored in these files but abandoned in JPEG. Raw files from recent cameras like PowerShot S100 of Canon and GX1 of Panasonic still doesn’t include, but their supports are quite comprehensive. However, the adjustment in the lens correction data is embedded into raw files of Micro Four Thirds camera, which receives inadequate notice. As soon as the source image is chosen, there are plenty of options to align them automatically and completely remove shadows made by movement in the scene. And next is the HDR processing.

The very first thing impresses us in the editing environment is the fast performance. The preview windows kept up-to-date regularly when we moved the sliders, and this would help us easily edit the settings. When we zoom the image to 1:1 magnification, the preview resolution reduced in the moment the changes were made, but the sharp preview image appeared in less than a second after our mouse button release. Once images are resized to fit with screen, the preview update seemed to be sharp and immediate. It was such a tremendous improvement in comparison with performance of HDRSoft Photomatix or even greater than standard HDR features in Adobe Photoshop Elements as well as Corel Paint Shop Pro.

Its fast performance means you can scroll your mouse over Timeline – the name that Oleneo gives for its editing history – and immediately has plenty of notifications. The Add Version button saves a marker in Timeline for easier tracking. Scrolling mouse over Presets brings the same result.

The quality of what we get is high class. This software can recover the elegant light and shadow, impressive image with clear HDR, strange image effect and several other stuffs. The controls are quite responsive and visual, and we particularly like the special highlight control to deal with creative and recovery separately.

The presets consist of plenty of various toning effects, such as make blue hint shadow or yellow hint highlight. Nevertheless, there is no control to customize these effects. HDRengine still has the lack of noise reduction, which tremendously helpful in dealing with raw images. With these features, curve-based editing and more, you have to pay approximately $155 for PhotoEngine of Oleneo.

HDRengine gave strong argumentation to back up the statement that a software should do its job well. Its controls are much more premium than HDR function of Photoshop Elements, and nearly closed with Photomatix Pro ($124) more than Photomatix Essentials ($49); besides, its like lightning performance means it faster any version of Photomatix. A trial for 30 days is already available to persuade the hesitated customers; we recommend you to give it a go.


Comments: Attractive HDR processing with elegant and quick response interface.

Image editing software: Require Windows XP (SP3)/Vista/7, 1.6GHz processor, 1.5GB RAM, 200MB disk capacity.
