Unified Color Technologies has announced the latest upgrade to its HDR image editing software offerings, HDR Expose 2, the standalone HDR software that empowers photographers to create true-to-life HDR images, and 32 Float 2 a 32-bit HDR image editing plug-in for Adobe Photoshop.
Built upon Unified Color’s Beyond RGBTM color technology platform, both HDR Expose 2 and 32 Float 2 separate an image’s color component from its luminosity component, enabling photographers to adjust each independently. This prevents the tell-tale color shifts often associated with HDR photography and producing much more natural-looking tone mapped results, says Unified Color Technologies CEO Alfred Zee. HDR Expose 2 and 32 Float 2 are also true 32-bit color editing tools that take full advantage of all the available shades of color and tone in a 32-bit HDR image for the smoothest, halo-free results, he adds.

The upgrades also offer: batch merge/batch processing tools; user-definable globally presets; and a revamped user interface. HDR Expose 2 and 32 Float v2 are available for direct purchase at http://www.unifiedcolor.com/products, and a 30-day free trial is available for each. Several pricing options are available.
