but Welcome to Flickr! rules for me

Flickr - almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world - has two main goals:

1. We want to help people make their photos available to the people who matter to them.

2. We want to enable new ways of organizing photos. and read on About Flickr

Flickr surpasses the functionality of iPhoto
Flickr just launched a new feature of their photo management/sharing site called Organizr. Watch the demo videos to see it in action -- this is as close to a desktop app I've ever seen a web application. With a bit of Flash programming and photos I've already uploaded, Flickr approaches the features of iPhoto (the photo manager I currently use) and Photoshop Album (tried it, liked it too), but all within a browser. In some aspects (gallery control, keyword additions/searching) Flickr surpasses the functionality of iPhoto

High dynamic range imaging - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allow a far greater dynamic range of exposures (i.e. a large range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to the deepest shadows.

HDRI was originally developed for use with purely computer-generated images. Later, methods were developed to produce a HDR image from a set of photos taken with a range of exposures. With the rising popularity of digital cameras and easy to use desktop software, the term 'HDR' is now popularly used[1] to refer to the process of tone mapping together bracketed exposures of normal digital images, giving the end result a high, often exaggerated dynamic range; however, in this case neither the input nor the output qualify as 'true' HDRI.

Recently, CMOS image sensor producers have begun to release sensors with HDR up to 110 db for security cameras.[2]"

Photomatix Pro - Google Search but their results looks like printing on a cheap tin chocolate box - totally inartistic

the technology is obviously useful for repro on paper

Comparison Photoshop CS2 HDR conversion vs Photomatix Tone Mapping: "The first images (left or top) were produced with HDR conversion method 'Local Adaptation' of Photoshop CS2 and the second (right or bottom) with the Tone Mapping method 'Details Enhancer' of Photomatix Pro. We tried to be as fair as possible and show the results obtained after attempting to find the best parameter adjustment for Photoshop Local Adaptation."

Browser Test

The Second Acid Test

Standards compliant?

Take The Acid2 Test and compare it to the reference rendering.


first try with a NIKON D80 - a tiny photoset on Flickr
I have been loaned this SLR for ten days with a TAMRON 18 to 200 lense on it
instead of a guest photographer a guest camera.


View as two shot slideshow (open in a new window)

image numbers reveal the source
DSC00170 is K800i
DSC_1245 is the same motif with the Nikon D80
NB "_"

camera shake was much worse especially with the zoom lens
