I am looking for software that can align photos which are slightly misaligned and then blend them together to produce a HDR photograph.
I often find that I am faced with a shot that my camera cannot reproduce because the dynamic range of the scene is too high. I get either too much bloom or pitch black shadows. I would like to be able to take a couple of photos at different exposure compensation levels, and then align them and blend for HDR. The thing is I mostly shoot handheld, so getting photos that I can easily match up with one another is very difficult.
I usually use Lightroom for processing, and I don't know that it has this feature. So, I am wondering if there is any software that can take two or more photos and automatically align them before either automatically merging the HDR, or producing output photos that I can easily merge myself.
