How to use the Basic HDR
HDR (high dynamic range) photos are very popular in the real estate photography industry as they provide the most dynamic images by merging multiple different exposures, creating a perfect picture with perfect lighting.
Because real estate photography is a volume business, the primary objective of all professional photographers is to reduce the manipulation of images. Our HDR image processing solution enables the reduction of image manipulation because it's fully integrated within our single website property, image delivery, and ordering processes.
The Basic HDR groups your exposures together and merges them into one single image using basic HDR techniques. You can run one free merging process per tour. Each merging process (called jobs) can process up to 50 final images. For example, if you took 7 exposures per frame and you took 50 scenes, it means that you can upload 350 images (exposures) in one single job and get 50 final images, saving you a ton of time!
The Basic HDR is also capable of merging panoramic images such as the ones generated from Ricoh Theta Z1. It will blend the start and the end of the image in order to avoid the line mark created from the 2 lenses.
The first step is to Edit Tour and click in the HDR tab then select Basic HDR
