I wanted to read what other DC members have said about online-convert
, but to my surprise there were no search answers to my query! So I thought I would tell.
For a couple of days I have been testing several programs, in order to convert a couple of HDR photos into JPG. It is really not as easy as it may sound, very few programs are supporting HDR. Of course, every time I made a new query on Google for HDR Convert
'ish topics, I was also given results to online solutions. In the beginning I didn't care to give them a second thought.
Finally, I tested online-convert. The speed of the procedure was a total surprise to me. This was all set and done much faster than I could have done it on my desktop computer! The result was fine.
No, this link is not the converted photo...:
HDR photos are two or more photos (of the exact same motive) blended with each other. If on your desktop computer, the tone of the final result is very depending of the chosen settings - the same HDR series can easily vary between dark or light, depending on your settings. On the online converter you will not have these options; their system's fixed settings will decide the result.
As I said, the result was fine. The final JPG pictures were a little too dark for my taste, and the red colour a little too dominant. But, hey, HDR photos are meant to be tone-mapped! At least the fake ones... (fhdr).
My conclusion is that online-convert is surprisingly fast and easy to use, and gives good quality.
