HDR Imaging In Linux

This tool enables you to experiment with high-dynamic range lighting in a photo or 3D image that might be used in a game or 3D world. The options for controlling HDR lighting are simple: adjust a slider for gamma correction, load a tonal mapping tool to adjust light sources and other variables. Then, save your work for modeling in a 3D world.

snap-qt4_2 Qtpfsgui is an open source graphical user interface application that aims to provide a 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(8 bit)

Supported features:

  • Create an HDR file from a set of images (formats: JPEG, TIFF 8bit and 16bit, RAW) of the same scene taken at different exposure setting.
  • Save and load HDR images.
  • Rotate and resize HDR images.
  • Tone map HDR images.
  • Copy exif data between sets of images.

Qtpfsgui is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X

Why this name?
Qt: the program uses Qt4 to show its graphical widgets.
pfs: the main backend library and original source code base.
gui: this stands simply for graphical user interface.
