CameraBag 2 is standalone application with a collection of filters and effects for editing images. It’s easy to use, comes with a huge collection of presets, and offers total control over adjustments and effects.
About 10 years ago I borrowed (stole) my sister’s Intuos2 tablet and I’ve rarely used a mouse since. I almost can’t work without my tablets. When I heard that Wacom was coming out with the Intuos5, I couldn’t figure out how they were going to add anything that the Intuos4 didn’t already have since it was so good. Boy, was I naive.
The folks at Oloneo are trying to make it easier with the release of their new HDRengine standalone program that’s aimed at both the hardcore HDR crowd and new users who want to get HDR images quickly with a lot of control. Loaded with features, you can import RAW files, merge multiple images/exposures, and also tone map a single exposure.
