HDR ToneMap: Auto Tone Mapper


The Auto Tone Mapper works in an entirely automated way. Use it if you are new to HDR and Tone Mapping. With only one setting to play with, it is fun and easy to use. When you have gained more experience, you can switch to the Local Tone Mapper which gives more control.


The Auto Tone Mapper settings are displayed in the High Dynamic Tone Mapping panel when Auto Tone Mapper is selected in the menu located at the top.



Using the Auto Tone Mapper

The Auto Tone Mapper is easy to use. Simply drag the Strength slider and watch the image change in real time.


Editing the Tone mapping setting:

  • Drag the Strength slider



Strength value range:

  • 0 to 100: low Tone Mapping effect, medium high light recovery, natural image
  • 100 to 150: medium Tone Mapping effect, full highlight and shadow recovery, natural image
  • 150 to 200: high Tone Mapping effect, full highlight and shadow recovery, detail increase
  • 200 to 300: extreme Tone Mapping effect, unnatural image
