Hydra 1.6 for Aperture

Creaceed says it has released the final version of Hydra, its plug-in for Aperture. The software lets users produce high dynamic range (HDR) images through Aperture, creating detail in scenes that would otherwise be over- or underexposed. The v1.6 update makes a variety of changes, such as the ability to save and load HDR presets, and process DNG files as well as those from Canon's EOS-1D camera. Pixel depth can be set to 8- or 32-bit per component, and output format can be configured for JPEG, TIFF or OpenEXR.

Image alignment can now be set to manual or automatic, and input and output files are stacked together within Aperture. Other changes include a remedied colorspace problem in output, and the ability to set default perspective as either 2D or 3D. Hydra requires a G5 or Intel Mac, and Mac OS X 10.5.4 or later. It costs $60.
