A new release of a plug-in for Adobe Lightroom called HDRinstant that allows photographers to create HDR images from video and photos taken on burst mode.

Montpellier, France, February 7, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -

HDRlog SARL is proud to announce the release of a new version of its Adobe Lightroom plug-in called HDRinstant. This software enables professional and amateur photographers to take video clips of moving scenes shot under high-contrast lighting and turns them into amazing HDR photos!

Even though standard HDR (high dynamic range) bracketing techniques work well, the photographer needs a camera equipped with bracketing capabilities, a tripod and a static scene. HDRlog's revolutionary patent-pending technology eliminates these constraints. With HDRinstant, photographers are no longer limited to using expensive equipment or a tripod, allowing free shooting of scenes with moderate movement. Up until now, this has not been possible. HDRinstant provides HDR photographs for all scenes and for everyone.

Firstly, HDRinstant’s innovative technology allows the user to create a fantastic HDR image from video footage. This unique feature is made possible by using the neighboring frames of the photographer's favorite frame. This magic is quite simple to understand: 100 frames taken at 1/100 of a second is equivalent to 1 frame exposed for one second.

Secondly, the plug-in allows the photographer to select his preferred moment in a given video sequence – so they will never forget those cherished moments again with our simple to use plug-in.

Thirdly, HDRinstant’s anti-ghosting capability removes motion blur when creating HDR images from several frames making it much easier to capture the photographer's favorite moment from a video sequence.

HDRinstant is as simple as this - after importing a video clip into Adobe Lightroom, extract as many images as possible (the more you extract the less noisy the final HDR photo will be). Then select the preferred frame. Afterwards simply run the HDRinstant plug-in which will stack the frames and apply a special morphing algorithm to build the final HDR photograph. This powerful tool automatically aligns the stacked frames, eliminates camera shake and lets photographers improve the quality of certain areas that contain small details.

With HDRinstant, it is now possible to create stunning HDR images in difficult conditions - In the sunrise example (on the website) not only have the dark details of the pebbles and the highlights been brought out, but the precise moment in the video has been chosen where the model is the most photogenic (

The software has been developed for professional photographers and videographers who wish to turn an ordinary video clip into a stunning photograph. In addition to working with video clips, HDRinstant also works with a series of camera images taken in high-speed burst mode.
HDRinstant is a plug-in for Windows and Mac versions of Adobe Lightroom 4.0 or higher. A single-user license costs $59(US) and includes one year of upgrades. Currently, the software is available at a special introductory price of $29. For more information, or to download the trial version, visit
