What is an HDR file?
An HDR file is a raster image or digital photo saved in HDRsoft's High Dynamic Range (HDR) image format. It is used for enhancing the color and brightness range of a digital image. HDR files can also be processed to fix dark shadows or washed out areas of a picture.
HDR software can composite multiple photos with different exposures to create a single image with a full and evenly distributed range of color.
NOTE: HDR files are also known as Radiance HDR or HDRI files.
