OrasisHD is a 1-shot HDR app. It takes a SINGLE image and automatically
transforms it to a well-exposed, natural-looking photo, simulating the way your
eyes perceived the scenery at the moment the photo was taken. Based on a decade
of academic research, OrasisHD uses a proprietary image...
Even the example photo here shows the flaw in this app
It is trying to balance everything from the darkened image which is too dark for this app to edit. It brought up the grain and oversaturated the rest of the photo to try to make up for it. I’m sure if the app designer were to redo their photos, maybe not from the same vacation, but similarly nice setting they would use the flash to light their subjects in the darker foreground and the app can then have more light to allow the photo to look like how the eye perceived it. The photo end result above doesn’t make me want to waste the space on my phone. I don’t want to bash the Dev’s hard work totally. Not even gonna one or two-star it. But please fix the image you submitted. I bet your app works fine with normal lighting situations. Where the lighting is not as extreme between the subject and scenery. But the one above, was just under-lit in the foreground and the final edit was not the best choice to show with the end result requiring a few more apps to try to repair it and possibly degrade it further. This image could be in the app manual showing the limits of the app to users show how to obtain best results and where the limits are. Then show the newer young photographers how to get the best daylight images. It’s hard to fill in data for light that isn’t there . Sometimes you must over-expose the image a bit then let the app darken it in post.
This claims to make an HDR photo out of a regular photo. It doesn’t. What it does do is try to lighten the shadows and/or darken the highlights. In the auto mode there is a shift in colors in the shadows. It also adjust too far. In the manual mode you can slide back the shadows to make them not so exaggerated. In a real HDR photo several different exposures are combined to get the High Dynamic Range. If you have use a simple photo editing program this is just changing the the highlights and shadows to bring the values closer together. In the Gray mode you don’t get the color shift because there is only black and white. This can save some photos but I would always switch to the manual mode to see if you can do better than the auto settings. There are some filters, such as cartoon or gray, that stylizes your photos.
Navigation improvements would move this into four or five star territory
Many others have addressed the functionality of the app and filters, I don't have much to add there. What I do have to add is that there are some basic navigational issues. When composing a photo if the shot isn't what the user is after - the "+" sign allows a new photo to be takenwithout saving the current photo. This was not intuitive to me. Seems more logical if that were an "x" to better indicate the desire to escape or close the current view/window so that I might take a new photo. Also in the "⭐️" filter area, it appears that any selection will immediately overwrite any changes a user might have made manually. A preview mode for filters, or a way to return to cutsom adjustments would be appreciated. Just a little finesse on the interface would push this into four or five star territory.
There is a learning curve. Its well worth the time to master the interface. This app will allow some impossible problems to be over come. When this app does it's thing you have super dynamic range with reasonable resolution of minor movements. Use it for those occasions when there is no right exposure for all the photo. I cannot live without it for that impossible exposure problem. Hoooooaaaaa!
There are so many photo apps. This is the first that I’ve tried that makes a dramatic change in my close up shots of models, automatically. The app design is not 5 star material but the degree of photo improvement is so dramatic it demands 5 stars for that feature, alone. And to do so automatically is a huge time saver to those of us who are not skilled photographers.
It works well but could use updated. The auto mode severely over saturates. You can correct it in the editor but time gets wasted having to do it. Overall the app does a good job. But you do have to learn how to use it as it is a little wonky. But the results will be worth the time to learn the apps strengths and weaknesses
quick and easy way to brighten dark pictures
I love this app. So much easier to lighten dark pictures with this app than using the robust but complicated tools that are available-and which I have. Orasis is an important, go-to tool in my graphics tool box.
It Improves the Original
I’ve only used this about 5 times. It is a marked improvement over the original and certainly worth trying it. I will be using this many times in the future.
It takes one photo at a time which must then be saved before taking another but on auto, each photo compensates for poor light etc and ensures a perfect image without having to edit.
Stopped Working! Nooooooooo!!
This is a GREAT app! I paid for it because I LOVE IT... But now that I’ve paid for it stopped several months later. Why? So...I deleted it and downloaded it again... Still nothing. No side menu to “+” photo or “arrow” to save photo. Just a blank screen over my intended photo image. When I take the photo, it throws me out of the program entirely to my home screen and no image is in my photos file. I am bummed out! (It does work on my iPad.)
Sometimes great, sometimes not
For one-button enhancement this gives great results on some photos. But it sometimes gives photos a kind of overblown HDR look. That can be a good thing if I'm looking for an effect, but that's not really what an app like this is supposed to be about. Nonetheless it does work beautifully a lot of the time. I still haven't gotten to a place where I can predict which will be better, but I find that between Orasis and another similar app called "Normalize" I have all the bases covered. Usually when one doesn't work, the other does. I recommend having both of these in your arsenal. The main thing I'd request is to give real time feedback on the color adjustment X/Y grid. It's hit or miss currently because you can't see how the photo is changing until you release your finger from the screen.
I was able to greatly improve old photos of value to be. Also having fun with the program in general. It's also great for adding dramatic shadows to clouds and other effects.
It does what it's supposed to do. It works very well on most images. Some images just don't look right. Not all will. But most I've used have great results.
A life saver in some situations
I don't need to use this app often but when I do, it can be a life saver. It take some time to learn to use the Manual mode but it worth the effort.
Easy to use and powerful tools. A little practice and you can make a mediocre picture look professional.
