|WHAT IS BRACKETEER?
Bracketeer is a front-end GUI for Enfuse. Enfuse is a command-line opensource utility which uses multiple exposures of a scene (bracketed exposures) and merges them together to form a uniformly lit scene. It is similar to tonemapping with an HDR image except that no HDR image is ever created, and there is no ghosting. It works with any kind of bracketed image set, not just panoramic equirectangular images. Bracketeer can even auto-align hand-held shots! The results are almost always much better than anything that can be achieved with Photoshop’s HDR Tone Mapping:
Here is a great example of what Bracketeer can do. These images were shot hand-held at -2EV, 0EV, and +2EV:
Bracketeer was used to auto-align and enfuse the images to get this stunning result:
