Fast, non-destructive macros that apply natural logarithmic tone mapping to your HDR images using procedural functions.
Why use these over Affinity Photo's built-in tone mapping (using the Tone Mapping Persona)?
Completely non-destructive, applied as a group that you can simply show or hide. Easily change the base exposure or add more adjustments to control the tone mapping effect.
Instant application: no delay required before the tone mapping can be applied. Run the macro and see your tone mapped result straight away.
Natural result: compared to the Tone Mapping Persona, these macros will present a result that is more natural and closer to how the human eye would have perceived the scene.
Seamless 360 tone mapping: these macros are a great solution for 360 imagery! Tone mapping via the Tone Mapping Persona will leave you with a visible seam because the process is not seam-aware. These macros however will let you tone map 360 imagery with no seam when the image is projected.
Completely revised Logarithmic Tone Mapping (should now render faster) and Fast Tone Mapping (now referred to as Tone Compression). Also added Highlight Tone Compression as a third method.
Revised the presets and made them more suitable across a wider range of imagery.
New tone mapping method: Fast Tone Mapping (in addition to Logarithmic Tone Mapping).
Two new presets which use the Fast Tone Mapping method: 3D Render and Archviz.
See the included PDF for installation instructions and a detailed explanation of how to use the Tone Mapping macros.
