Oloneo PhotoEngine 1.0 – May 2011

So after a year or more of beta testing the upcoming Oloneo PhotoEngine HDR software, they are releasing the full version to be purchased at a price of $149 (beta users get a 25% discount) this May. After testing and using the beta for a long time, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is clearly the best and most easy to use HDR software currently. Although they don’t have a Mac native version available yet, I have had no problems using the software under VMWare Fusion 3.x on my Mac Pro (2008 8gig, 8-core w/ OS 10.6.x). Alternatively you could run it even better under Boot Camp if you don’t mind rebooting into Windows.

On the same subject, look for my upcoming full-length DVD video tutorial showing how to do your own HDR blends based on my award winning recipe for amazing HDR images. I will post more information about that as soon as I am ready to share more.

But what about software for a very specific purpose? Or better yet, what software is worth even getting? I can honestly say that I have tested and tried many of the most popular plug-in’s and programs made for photographers and image processing. Most are decent in their own way, some are a waste of money but here is my short list of those that make the cut as my favorites and/or most used programs (excluding Photoshop which is a given).
