Users' opinions about easyHDR

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

EasyHDR without question, produces much Better results than I was ever able to produce with Photomatix. Over the years I have tried a lot of editing programs. EasyHDR has outperformed them all. The results look more like what I saw with my own eyes when I snapped the shutter. The Best shadow detail, more natural looking color and accurate color, too! The results are like night and day to Photomatix. EasyHDR is more reasonably priced. And for the quality of the edited image, less costly than nearly all editing software. Easier to use. Produces the finished edit in much less time. I have not found a program that will produce a better picture to print, of Landscapes, Nature & Wildlife, Portraits, Architectural and Interiors. Photomatix is just not this versatile. Considerable time has been spent making comparisons, as I feel it is my responsibility as a working photographer, to provide to my clients and customers, the Best Quality Image I can. And because I take pride my work, and I Enjoy photographing the Beauty that God has given us, and sharing these Joys with others!

Thank You, Bartek, for providing a program that helps me accomplish this desire. You have done a very Good thing, and I appreciate your accomplishments! You have made photography more Enjoyable and Rewarding, Bartek!

Thank You my Friend!

I have tested most HDR software available and have never seen such smooth and natural color tone as your software produces; I've never been very happy with the Photomatix results, but they are the most popular--It's either too saturated and/or grainy. Yours is the best tone mapping I've seen.

I just purchased easyHDR today after evaluating a few other HDR programs, and I just want to say how completely satisfied I am with your easyHDR software. A full set of functions, easy to use, and a very attractive price! I love easyHDR. Thank you so much.

I just purchased easyHDR after having used many other fusion programs over the years. Your recent product is now simply the best of them all. Thank you for your continued research and development and reasonable price. Keep up the good work!

Hi, I have been using EasyHDR for several years now and so far I have been pleased with it. However I felt I had to write and say what an improvement EasyHDR Pro 2 is. I love it and would recommend it to any one. Excellent program, well done.

Thank you for such a great product! I downloaded trial versions of six different HDR programs before deciding which one to buy. I quickly discovered that easyHDR Pro provides all the capabilities I need (plus some), the user interface provides the most efficient workflow, and it is the best at creating natural looking photos (even though it is also capable of producing very artistic effects as well). I was blown away at how dramatically this software improved individual jpeg images that I took many years ago before I ever heard of HDR. Also, it runs reasonably quickly on my computer, even when processing 20 megabyte RAW files. I am recommending it to all my photo enthusiast friends. Everyone who wonders why their photos don't look like the original scene needs to get this software! Needless to say, I am very happy with my purchase of easyHDR Pro.

Dear Bartek,

I'm really impressed by the HDR software you made. The user interface is first class, the possibilities of the program are extensive and the documentation is very informative. Also your website is clear and helpful. Chapeau!

After working with other programs, easyHDR is in many aspects better than the other products on the market; it's the ease of use - as it sayes in the name - that really makes the difference. I will promote easyHDR in our photoclub.

Thanks for the effort you put in the program and I'm looking forward for any further developments in the future.

Apres avoir testé différents logiciels "HDR" et au vu des résultats obtenus, j'ai opté pour easyHDR Pro 2. Un choix que je ne regrette pas. Ce logiciel est bien conçu et d'usage facile qui permet a la fois le traitement automatique et le traitement paramétré. Compte tenu des limites techniques actuelles dans ce mode de traitement de l'image, easyHDR Pro m'apparaît personnellement comme le meilleur logiciel du genre en terme de rapport qualité/prix. Comme tous les logiciels de retouche d'image, les résultats seront influencés par votre niveau de connaissance en la matiere ainsi que de votre attrait pour l'expérimentation. Sachez aussi que le temps de traitement sera fonction des parametres sélectionnés ainsi, bien sur, des capacités de votre ordinateur. La sélection manuelle des valeurs d'exposition d'une seule image de base permet d'éviter la prise de vue "bracketing" ce qui offre l'avantage de supprimer l'étape d'alignement parfois délicate. Enfin, lors de l'achat de la licence, le suivi de la procédure de paiement ne m'a posé aucun probleme. Conclusion: easyHDR Pro est un logiciel spécifique que je recommande aux amateurs.

Being an amateur photographer I have tested four HDR programs and found EasyHDR to be the easiest to use by far the controls are intuitive and you don't need to be a programmer to get good results. Thank you for creating a fantastic piece of software, I have already started to recommend it. Well done.

I already knew easyHDR from a few years ago but at that time it didn’t attract me enough to stop struggling with Photomatix. In the meantime I stopped producing HDR at all, because on the one hand I bought a camera with a very high dynamic sensor and on the other side could get very good results from these RAW files by using a good RAW converter.

Now, about one week ago, I came back to easyHDR by chance and purchased it immediately! All I could learn with it until now is just great:

  • My main concern is to produce absolutely natural looking pictures: great results
  • Handling and usability: extremely intuitive: just great
  • User interface: very professional and easy to use!
  • Price: too low.... :-)

So, I think this is an extremely good job you did: just great! Maybe that I even start again with astro photography, which I tried with some piddly steps years ago.

Dear Bartek,

I bought EasyHDR a few hours after my first contact with the subject. It is extremely easy indeed to grasp the concept of HDR using your software. More, I had not to abandon my favorite operational system running EasyHDR under Wine. Congratulations for this excellent work.

Purchased your program and had excellent results. Enlarged my photos (8 by 10) that I used with you program and they turned out beautiful. My friends that were shown the pictures agreed that the program really enhanced then professionally. Easy to use and has advance controls when you want to learn more.

Thank you for a excellent product

I found your program by chance and after playing just a short time with it I purchased end of August immediately. Since then my workflow has fully changed. I'm developing my Sony A99 RAWs now with easyHDR (most times with a natural preset) and give them just a final touch with PS. Also editing of single jpgs works great.

I really wish I had discovered this excellent software before. Just to let you know and say thank you!

Keep up your great work!

Take care

I have to say that I am deeply impressed by the extremely beautiful HDR images that I have created using the amazing EasyHDR. And I have to praise the plug in features added to Lightroom that enable fully automatic creation of HDR images. The program has low cost and is actually worth a higher price when I think of all the features I get for the money.

I'm a licensed user and I'm really impressed with and like this software. I'm a senior software developer and I recognize skilled work and effort. I appreciate and admire what you have done. Thanks!

Easy HDR 3 is my "go to" software for HDR image processing! This program is a fantastic value compared to it's competition, which is primarily Photomatix and Aurora HDR IMHO (I did a trial of Photomatix but was not impressed with the results I was getting, and I do currently own Aurora HDR which I also like). The primary reason I keep using EasyHDR3 90% of the time is the presets of EasyHDR3 are AWESOME!! I can take an image from zero to 70-90% finished just by selecting one the included presets that works for that image (and sometimes a couple of minor tweaks). I am a fan realistic looking HDR images and EasyHDR3 helps me achieve that look quickly and easily, without "overcooking" my images requiring me to do a bunch more work to "pull it back" or balance it out. I have medical issues that makes sitting at a computer for long hours an unpleasant experience, so I am always trying to shorten the time it takes to post process my images, and EasyHDR3 helps with that immensely! Dollar for dollar this software is VERY hard to beat when it comes to ease of use and producing stunning images quickly with much less effort (and expertise) than the other options!

Hello Bartek,

Just a note to say that I absolutely love EasyHDR. I think it’s the best, and worth every penny and more! Thank you for creating such a wonderful program and I wish you continued success.

Kind Regards,


Sunday, November 22nd, 2020

I've downloaded your program and I have to say I could not be happier with it. I'm amazed that your program delivers so much value for its price! I have much to learn about the whole process and I'm sure your program will satisfy my needs as I continue to learn more about the whole HDR business. In the meanwhile the presets will serve me well.

I've enclosed the first photo I've done with and I'm looking forward to working beyond "point and shoot".

And a special thank you for allowing me the Christmas discount on your fine program.

Warmest regards,

Phil Murtha

Hey Bartek,

Maybe a bit odd but I would like that you know that easyHDR rocks! I’ve bought your software approximately 2-3 years a go and still love it. I’ve made so many nice HDR’s that people didn’t believe I created them.

Keep up the good working!



Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

I purchased EasyHDR yesterday and wanted to send a note to let you know that it works great and I am enjoying the software. One of my better software purchases.



Wednesday, September 1st, 2021


I just wanted to thank you for this amazing program. I have tried several HDR apps, paid & free, e.g. Dymamic Photo HDR, PhotoMatix and Luminar, but still like EasyHDR best of all, and use it frequently. I especially like the UI, and the presets. I used to create HDRI's with 3 jpgs +/- 2 ev, but now just a pseudo-HDR with one jpg, and am quite satisfied with the results.

Also, many thanks for your timely reply to my support request.

Best regards,

Hi Bartek,

I have been using many different HDR software in the last years; and there is no doubt about it : it is from far the best HDR processing tool I’ve used so far:

  • No memory leak
  • Low memory footprint
  • No crash on my old Windows 7
  • Expected results in minutes
  • Effective and fast
  • Stunning batch processing
  • All the usual features I need: ghost removal, auto-alignment, default preferred settings, final tuning, customizable output file name. And more!
I am pretty sure that for any of these points, you can give the name of a competitor not fulfilling it.

Really fantastic job

Dear Sir,

I have been developing and printing photographs since 1950 and using digital equipment since year 2000 and always trying out new software.

Never before have I found such a thoroughly developed and advantageous application for such a modest cost as EasyHDR. Much of my work is still performed with 1950s folding film cameras (for fun) and it emphasizes rather feeble contrast detail, from the elderly 4 element lenses of the time, to greatly improve effective resolution.

Almost exclusively, I am using tone mapping on single images rather than HDR on several. I tested 'Aurora' just before your EasyHDR but found it unstable, unpredictable and the results generally overdone and unrealistic.

May I congratulate you on your mammoth task of creating a very effective, system undemanding and holistic application at a most reasonable price.

(This is not an encouragement to raise your prices, just a thank you for a job well finished.)

With kind regards and appreciation,

Tony Brown.

I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing software. It has been a godsend in my real estate photos. I hope you continue to develop and update this amazing software which is why I buy a new licence every year.

Also I was born in Bialystok Poland but my parents moved to the US when I was 10 so Im incredibly proud to use your software as a fellow country man.

dziękuję bardzo
