New HDR editing tool on the block OLONEO PhotoEngine

OLONEO PhotoEngine is a new HDR tool.  After one day of use I am really impressed with it.The tool not only creates really impressive HDR image with a single image but it is also amazingly fast.Software developers at OLONEO created a fantastic interface.Just moving some sliders starts showing marvelous variations in a photograph.The inclusion of video tutorials for each feature is just icing on the cake.

My Adventures

Here is what I was able to create just by sliding a single slider in HDR Auto mode

HDR with PhotoEngine

I was able to do this after watching a six minutes video tutorial also created by smart guys at OLONEO.

Here are some samples of images that I was able to make more vivid using this tool.

I am still exploring the possibilities which look endless at this moment :) . I will be posting more on this as I dig deeper into all the features of this tool until then you can join the bandwagon by downloading the free beta version available from the OLONEO website. Enjoy
