I'm surprised that the the Oloneo photo engine hasn't made more of a splash in the community of photographers. I am not linked to that company, so I don't have any vested interest in pushing the software to anyone... I just thought I'd mention it here, for anyone that might be interested.

It does things that I haven't seen out of the box in other software:

- After the fact lighting: A very interesting tool for object and interior photography: Take several images of an object under different lighting conditions, and combine the lighting AFTER THE FACT in post processing, adjusting color balance for each light individually.

- Image stacking to remove noise: Take several similar images of an object, and OPE will stack them together to greatly remove noise.

- HDR: A VERY FAST preview, and intuitive sliders to create HDR images. I'm a long time user of Photomatix (since version 1), and I now often come to OPE instead.
 

The company home page can be found at www.oloneo.com . They're also selling a stripped down version that does only HDR.

Having tried it I wasn't that impressed, it might be quick but I didn't think much of the HDR effect, IMHO nothing like as good as Photomatix.

As for relight it's easily enough done in Photoshop if you really have to relight an image, although I seem to have managed without having to do it all these years.

My big dislike was the default turn everything yellow, I did figure out how to turn it off it's still applied by default every time I try to use OPE.
Not for me I'm afraid.

No real value to a bird photographer.

No real value to... well, you get the idea. That's why it never made a splash with me.
