CloudHDR is a web based HDR photo processing application, powered by Photomatix, the clear leader in HDR processing software.
CloudHDR allows you to process hundreds of bracketed sets simultaneously by harnessing the power of cloud computing.
CloudHDR will open for general use in the fall of 2013. Starting mid-summer I'll need some adventurous souls who are interested in being beta testers. During the beta period the app will be completely free, and you'll have the chance to help shape the direction of the development. If this sounds interesting to you, please sign up with your email address and I'll be in touch as soon as the first preview version is ready.
Hi, I'm Jeremy Green. I'm a part time photographer and full-time software engineer in Norman, OK. I've been into photography and HDR for about 6 or 7 years now, and I'm building CloudHDR to "scratch my own itch".
CloudHDR was created to solve a series of problems that I encountered as I became an aspiring HDR photographer.
After a typical "small" photo shoot I will end up with around 500 RAW exposures representing about 100 HDR images. These exposures have to be merged to HDR files, then tone mapped in a variety of ways, then composited together to form the final image. Then the previews need to be uploaded somewhere that visitors/clients can find them.
I had started to develop a decent automated desktop workflow, but I had some problems with searching/indexing old material and I wasn't comfortable relying on just a USB drive (or two) for the purposes of permanently archiving my digital assets. Also, processing that much data on my poor little lap top was just too sloooow. So I turned to "the cloud" to help with permanent storage and practically unlimited processing power.
I will not send you SPAM or sell your email address to anyone. I hate that as much as you do. I will only contact you to let you know when your invitation to CloudHDR is ready and waiting.
