Pinnacle Imaging Systems ON PHOTOSHOP CS5’s HDR FEATURES: BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, BUT…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Adobe Release Shows Appreciation for High Dynamic Range Imaging, But Fails to Satisfy Demand for 32-Bit Processing and True-to-Life HDR Color Scheme

South San Francisco, CA – April 15, 2010 – Pinnacle Imaging Systems (http://www.unifiedcolor.com), the experts in high dynamic range imaging (HDR), expressed optimism over the renewed attention to HDR in the latest release of Adobe® Photoshop® CS5, but emphasized that while the package offers some interesting HDR-like effects, it still does not provide the true HDR capabilities that are desired by today’s HDR practitioners.

With the new additions to the tool kit, Photoshop can offer similar results to some of the HDR merge tools on the market, most of which rely on a practice known as tone mapping to make the resulting HDR image “pop.” It’s the tone mapping phase of the process that results in the hyper-realistic, processed, and over saturated color routinely referred to as the “grunge-look” of HDR. To date, only Pinnacle Imaging Systems' HDR PhotoStudio software supplies the True Color Results demanded by professionals and enthusiasts looking to comprehensively create and edit their images to accomplish true-to-life HDR results. Additional technology comparisons between HDR PhotoStudio and the newly released Photoshop CS5 can be found online at this link.
