Bracketeer re-written as a Cocoa application
Pangea Software has released Bracketeer 4, the latest version of its photography utility that combines bracketed exposures into a single image, resulting in a wide range of shading in each photograph. The software provides users with an alternative to Tone Mapping, with a different technique called "Enfusing." The program creates images directly from the bracketed source images, without ever having to create an HDR image first. This is claimed to help deliver a more realistic looking picture while improving processing time.
The latest version of Bracketeer has been completely rewritten as a Cocoa application, with a new user interface and enhanced speed and stability. The app has also been changed to only support Apple's newest Snow Leopard operating system.
Current registered users can receive a free upgrade to Bracketeer 4 simply by downloading it from company's website. New users can download the program and try out a limited demo mode, prior to paying the $20 to buy the software.
