“FDRTools is a well laid out simple-to-use program that offers benefits not afforded by the other HDR merging programs.
In other programs the typical workflow is to pre-select the source images and merge them, then tone map. Merging to HDR and tonemapping are treated as separate operations. There is no option to go back and change how the source images influence the final tone mapped image.
FDRTools has bridged the gap between merging and tonemapping; the user has the ability to look at the tone mapped image then in real time edit the merging of source images. The user can choose to include or not include a particular source image, can weight the influence of a source image from 0-100% (like opacity in PS), change the white balance, and remove ghosting. Think of the source images as an image stack similar to “layers” in Photoshop. Each change is made with a click or move of the slider button followed by an immediate update to the tone mapped image.
It can’t get anymore interactive than that.”

I have used FDRTools HDR software for some time. The hallmark of this HDR program is clean merges. Where some programs tend to create artifacts FDRTools produces very clean output. That is important if you will be making large prints or submitting to stock agencies.
