SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fotor (www.fotor.com), already a recognized leader in free, powerful photo editing tools, is now bringing HDR imaging to iOS7 devices with its new Fotor HDR app. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, which is an imaging method that generates more true-to-life photographs than standard methods. Fotor has been at the forefront of HDR research, while maintaining the principle of making tools and products that anyone can use.
In general, smartphone manufacturers have been slow to integrate HDR techniques with their onboard cameras and native apps. Among digital photo aficionados, however, HDR has been the gold standard for some time. Fotor helps bridge this gap between hardware and software with its latest iOS7 app.
The effects of applying HDR techniques to a set of images are anything but subtle. Typically, users start with three pictures of the same scene, each taken at different shutter speeds. Next, the images are carefully merged, bringing out details at both high and low light levels. The user can then adjust the overall tone of the picture. The result is an image much closer to reality, and definitely more visually striking.
Company executives are confident that the Fotor HDR app will exceed expectations. The app boasts 32-bit processing, dual capture modes, and a collection of pre-set HDR styles. But what truly sets this app apart from its competitors is how it puts a sophisticated tool into the hands of even novice photographers.
Fotor HDR also includes features designed to improve the quality and reliability of finished photos. For instance, alignment technology fixes minor problems arising from camera movement. Sometimes, an object in the frame will move between exposures (birds, flags and clouds are all examples); these moving objects are referred to as "ghosts." Fotor has the tools to reduce these ghosts when the various shots are combined.
Fotor HDR is a product of Everimaging, a creator of intuitive, accessible and professional photo editing tools. The original multiplatform Fotor photo editor was released in May 2012 to excellent reviews; more than 20 million people have downloaded the editor so far.
Fotor was launched in May of 2012 and has from the very beginning brought powerful, easy to use photo editing tools into the hands of anyone and everyone with an Internet connection. Utilizing cloud computing to provide a suite of image processing tools ranging from basic cropping to HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing, Fotor has made professional-level photo editing accessible to everyday users through a clean, intuitive interface and workflow. Fotor strives to provide the highest quality tools in the most accessible manner and continues to pursue this goal with each new product and version release.
