Real life scenes often have a wide range of light intensity, which cannot be captured by a camera. In a photo of such a scene the bright areas look washed out and everything in shadows is pictured as a black spot with no details. The HDR technique allows you to capture details in bright and dark areas and have them merged in a single photo.

HDR photography is widely adopted by professional photographers. Wouldn't it be nice to have an HDR in mobile phones?

The problem is that HDR requires taking several differently exposed images in series, which must be precisely aligned and then fused. In order to be usable for real life scenes, the HDR feature should include moving object detection and hand shake compensation to avoid or minimize the ghosting in the final image. That requires a lot of computational resources and makes a challenge even for professional desktop HDR software.

Almalence has brought its expertise in professional HDR software to mobile phones. Our HDR fusion algorithms compensate hand shaking and detect moving objects in the scene, suppressing ghosting artifacts. At the same time, the algorithms are quick enough to provide comfortable processing time on mobile devices.

Standard HTC Desire Eye HDR is much better I deeply regret buying this app. I have no idea why HTC recommend it when their HDR in phone camera processor is so much better.

Daniel Boatman

Crashes when taking most pics Seems like a good app...even bought the pro version...but almost every time i take a photo, it freezes and never recovers...if author fixes their app, I'll gladly change this to a 5 star. LG lucid phone.

Shachar Weis

Works on v5.0 ! This stopped working when I upgraded to Lollypop, and now crashes when snapping a picture. EDIT: Dev has responded and fixed the error. Kudos! Rating readjusted.

Joe Freeman

Broken with Lollipop -- but now fixed This formerly good camera is now broken on Lollipop. It crashes after taking the first picture, thus is unusable. I hope it get fixed since I liked it before. However, I'd like if I could use the volume up/down keys to trip the shutter. OK, now it's been fixed for Lollipop and is as good as it used to be, not perfect but quite good and producing good photos. I like it much more than the HDR+ mode incorporated into Google Camera.

Paul Gokin

Works well on LG L90 Gives an extra 1 or so stop of dynamic range over the stock camera app. Focuses better than the stock app too. There is an option to save the individual bracketed frames along with the HDR composite. But the option that makes all the difference, especially in low light, is the option to apply no noise reduction in camera. The problem is that the LG's bundled camera app's noise reduction is way too aggressive, smearing any fine detail in the picture into a blur. This app allows saving a noisy, but detailed image for processing later in your favorite photo editing program (i.e. Adobe Lightroom). Overall, a great app and so far the only one that actually works as advertised on my phone.

POST-PURCHASE ADVERT OUTRAGE. Bought this app to find after every photo taken I get a full screen advert for their 'A better camera' app which I have to skip each time. These days a Dev must be crazy to place app-stopping adds in a paid app. This is outrageous. I've spent hundreds on paid apps over years to not see adds. This is only 2nd time I've left a review on Google play after about a thousand app installs which speaks volumes. Various other faults, E.g post-snap display of photo often looks out of focus where as the saved image is fine, so u have to leave app to be sure. Sort this & I will change review. I am reasonable. (Nexus 7 2013 Lollipop) P. S Other reviews I've read from this Dev lead me to believe that I will not get a helpful response but it's the principle. Hint: Great support can make a company O.o Just so u know...

michael Ohara

Bought the app I love the original HDR camera but this one takes picture then closes without saving the picture. Please fix

Chris Hart

Saving is odd... Galaxy S5. When choosing to save to SD card it still saves to the phone as well (two copies). Other than that, good quality.

Luis Alberto Bolaños

It's nice overall. The camera works great and the whatnot. The only thing I don't like as much is the GUI, which is pretty outdated.

Tomasz W

It does work... ...but there are much better options avbl ot there, esp among paid apps. The need to set all the hdr options prior to taking foto and can't adjust afterwards is plain stupid.

Jonathan DUrso

No go on nexus 6 Was working great on galaxy s4 but won't even open on N6 with 5.1

Carly Rush

Was 5 stars Ever since I updated to lollipop, this app chrashes. Please fix, and I will give 5 stars again.

arwyn munday

Fix please Had the free version on my old phone and it was really good so I thought I'd buy it for this phone. Neither this or the free version work for my phone since lollipop update. It says decoding for less than a second then crashes and closes. Would really like to be able to use this app as it used to be so good. (HTC One M8)

Richard Manns

Good app, GUI update would get 5 stars The UI looks outdated and gives the wrong impression to this app.

Ben Bonthuys

DO NOT INSTALL. AVOID!!! REPORT THIS APP. Worthless app. Developer recently turned it into a pure ad-revenue app and then abandoned it. It's now a broken camera app with ads, making the developer money and annoying you.

Daniel Franks

Paid for works well Free one sounded terrible so didn't install. Tried the paid for version as I couldn't find a better HDR camera app. Works pretty well! Interface ok but need to be quick to hit edit button to change final image. Still get ads..

Jamie Laverick

Easy fast effective Fun app I'm enjoying creating without fuss of pc and hours of photoshopping :)

Abdullah S

Not work whith hTC ONE New vergin 5

Wilfredo Alarcon

Used to love it, until the lollipop update Used to be fantastic. Even got the pro version. Now it crashes after every picture. Never recovers. Wish the developer would fix. Until then, one star.

A Google User

One of the best! If not *the* best HDR camera for Android!

Maria Kay

BOUGHT HDR apps don't excite me too much. But I bought it to make my LG G2 photos less boring and more Samsung-y $1. It works. Maybe make the pic taking time quicker? Thanks ?

Tom Arendell

Was great Loved this app, until Lollipop. Now I'm unable to take any pictures. Crashes every time.

A Google User

The new icon is gay Great app but please no gay flag on my phone

Joseph Roberts

Crashes doesn't work on HTC one android lollipop 5.0.2 Doesn't work when takeing photos

Dado Molina

Not for Nexus 6 Worked great with every phone I had except the Nexus 6, not compatible with it. I wish they would update it and make it compatible since I paid for the plus version and can't use it now.

Angeline JoVan

Love this app! Try the free one with ads, then buy it. Highly recommended! Using a Samsung S5, have no problem with crashes.

Chishimba Kabwe

It won't start Won't start, keeps asking me to wait or shut it down.

Mikel Andrés

Working fine now. Thank you for solving the problem

Russ Lunn

One of the best HDR apps for my LGG3 I have used.

Pijush Chakrabarti

Nice app Thanks for the nice app. Do you have anything for video recording. Expecting a quick reply

James Sleigh

Now POOR Used to work. But nothing happens when you try to open it...just a black screen. Waste of time and money. Keep clear!!!

sultan ma'ashi

Crash after taking photo The program crash and force close after taking picture , so disappointed

Destin Romie

Not working Says can't control exposure then it closes....

Hsm Amoody

Haven't been able to use the App since I bought it. Keeps crashing every time I open it.Fix this ASAP!

Gregory Somers

Paid has ads still.

radu herinean

Used to work It was OK, but on nexus 6 the pics are all completely dark, including the viewfinder before taking the picture. Unusable and I payed for it.

Chunqing Xia

Thanks for android 5.0 support.

Ben Ward

Awful Pictures appear pastey and blurred, very bad

Sergey B

Just black screen and error

Dasha Kettu

add "touch to focus" strange that this app does not have such a common option

Пользователь Google

no exposure change with any mode change Doesn't change exposition while bracketing on my SGS+!!! I've tried all the modes and the new checkbox. Just sometimes last shot is more exposured, but mainly no change. NO USE

A Google User

Best HDR Camera Application. If you're phone doesn't have a good HDR camera in its photo app. Pick this up and you will be happy you did. I've used this for over 2 years now and it's still great for HDR.

Charles Rosenberg

Crashes Crashes after every picture. Tried reinstall, no effect. Worked great before.

Yozeph Klaus Remke

Best cam so far for HQ / HDR pix. Does all what it says, but get the full version. The crippleware is shit. Yozeph

Durai Subramaniam

Not working on lollipop update on HTC ! App hangs/exits when photo is taken.Please fix the bug.

Abdulaziz Baras

Not working They have to return our money , not working

Venkata Satish

Doesn't work on nexus 6 Doesn't work on nexus 6, money down the drain

Nathan DePue

Nexus 6p This has been my go to camera app for my last 3 phones. Doesn't work on Nexus 6p due to Google having issues with exposure control. Hopefully there's some sort of workaround to fix that.

Wes Knippers

I want to like it... Bought this yesterday and was excited to use it but after the 2nd or 3rd bracket shot it crashed and never saved the photo. Tried it many times with the same result. Ended up downloading someone else's app and using it. HTC One m7 on Verizon running Lollipop 5.0.2

Jonathen Skyles

Stopped working. Both free and paid version stopped working when I bought the paid version. App crashes. Pictures were beautiful when it worked. No longer works. Not sure if it's an HTC m8 problem or something else. One star as the dev hasn't attempted to address the crashes after months of issues.

Mitch Bocz

Was great Had this app for a few years now and right after I got that free version I loved it and purchased the full version for 20 dollars worked great for a couple years but for a few months now it hasn't been working I've saved the app on my phone hoping that they would fix it and now I'm starting to realize that they are not going to fix it and I'm very disappointed! Wish y'all would fix my camera!

Kate McLemore

What happened? I loved this app, but all of a sudden when I try to take a picture you're app closes. It's worked before on this phones. :(

Bruce Tyler

Worked on note 3..... But sadly not on Nexus 6 running 5.1.1. Still, not going to ding the rating as the app worked wonderfully on the Note.

Charles Smith

Not Nexus 6P compatible. I love this app on every other phone I've had. It was my go to camera app when I went on vacations. It used to take great colorful pictures. Now it just says it cannot adjust the contrast and shuts the app down. Please fix this to work with Nexus 6P.

Aiden Clark

Paid version has ads This version for years never had ads but now it constantly promotes it's newer version. Its my choice leave me alone!

David Bobadilla

It's blocked I loved this app it was a 5 star ! Now I can't edit ! Downloading resources. Some editing tools unavailable .... What does that mean !!

Douglas Allan Barmore Jr

Not working on nexus 6 Not working on nexus 6. Something about not being able to access exposure control.

A Google User

Used to work on my previous phones but does not start on Nexus 5X. Waiting for fix.

Jim Rodriguez

Used to work It was my favorite HDR app so I purchased it. Unfortunately, it no longer works. Now I use a free app.

John Scott

Broken Used to be totally wonderful, but now crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME I try to take a picture. When the hell will devs learn to stop 'fixing' apps that aren't broken?

John Godsland

Broken on Nexus 6P My preferred HDR camera app is now sadly broken. I hope a fix is coming soon but I doubt it given that the app hasn't been updated since 2014.

Kevin Mattern

Errors on save Need to save images to external sdcard on lollipop, how about adding root option for sdcard access?

David Hopkins

Paid for nagware Despite the fact that I paid for the app it keeps nagging me all the time to buy another upgrade from the developers (A Better Camera) - why would I do that? So I can be bothered when they release the next app? Very disappointing! Paid nagware!

Razjan ramos

Grrrrrrrr not really sales ? Im so dissapointed and it so boring app camera hdr, please i want my money back, gime me back, and dishonest info. Thought sale and said almost 45%less but nothing, less cause its sales! are u kidding me you double pricing almost regular that i pay

Rich Fought

All the same exposures Does not work on the Nexus 6P.

Islam Nehad

Obsolete interface! I think it's time to change the app's interface .. Free apps already provide this!! ?

Gautam Patel

Not working on Asus zenfone 2 One of my all time favourite apps.. Also purchased premium one.Was working great on Note 3..... Sadly, not working at all on my new Asus ZenFone2.. Eagerly Waiting for an update. Is there anyone hearing??

Maria Kay

BOUGHT HDR apps don't excite me too much. But I bought it to make my LG G2 photos less boring and more Samsung-y $1. It works. Maybe make the pic taking time quicker? Thanks ?

Lisa Olson

Crashes and freezes this camera was my go to camera, now it freezes up when I take pictures. I paid for this app. I am so disappointed. I just want my money back.

Corey Kessler

Update killed the app Use to be a 5 star app but now it will stop working while I'm taking pictures and I have to restart my phone before I can use any camera app again.

A Google User

Bad. don't buy I bought this app years ago and came to try it out again. It takes blurry pictures I assume because it doesn't focus between shots and also has an ad for a other app.....

Ken Best

App abandoned? App still works but developer seems to have abandoned it, concentrating rather on A Better Camera app, which includes HDR in it. I have that app as well.

Alfred Nettleingham

Failed to save images Useless on my cubit, only saved one shot after many attempts, will uninstall, so out of pocket.

Erlangga Pramayuda

An advertisement on a purchased app? That was a stupid joke! I expected an ad-free application when I decided to purchase it.

SupaChan Wolf

Galaxy S4 Crashes. A lot! Also, why am I still getting ads on a paid version? Lame!
