RAW vignetting in DPHDR & PhotoMatrix?

Postby 3dcal » Sat Oct 24, 2015 9:17 pm


I'm trying out DPHDR5 (and PhotoMatrixEssentials4) to process RAW images from my Panasonic DMC-FZ70.
But the processed image is vingetted, though I didn't set it to vignette.

Lately I've been taking single RAW images on the advice of a friend. I hadn't tried to
process them till now.

In the past, I used DPHDR (purchased ~10yrs ago) to process 3 jpgs, but it doesn't work with RAW files.

I will go back to autobracketting 3 jpgs, but still have a lot of RAW images that I want to process.

Is the vignetting due to using the trial unregistered versions of DPHDR5 or PhotoMatrix?
Is there a way to prevent it?

Thanks in advance.

I uninstalled DPHDR5 & PhotoMatrix trials, and downloaded DPHDR6 and QuickHDR1.01 trials.

Still getting vignetting using 1 RAW image in DPHDR6, though not in QuickHDR(?) But can crop to remove
vignetting, and still have a good image.

I like both apps, and will keep working with them both.

QuickHDR may be all I need for RAW images as it does a nice job,
even though it doesn't have all the adjustments as DPHDR6.

BTW, I like the new GUI for DPHDR6.

Thanks for these great intuitive HDR apps. ;)

Here's the QuickHDR version using the "Soft Film" preset:
