 Introducing a new breed of HDR tool 
tonemapped HDR by Marc Mehl, creator of Picturenau
Picturenaut was made to fill the void that HDRShop left us with.It is an image editor focused on HDR generation from a series of bracketed exposures,tonemapping, and HDR editing. Nowadays there are several applications for all these taskscoming from the photographic side of HDR imaging, which all concentrate on giving be
 ginners an easy start by compromising control for advanced users. Picturenaut puts imagequality first. It o
ers a blend of deep level control for advanced users
a la HDRShop
, mod
ern algorithms for automation, and scientific accuracy.Picturenaut was born in the German photo community. It has been in the works for three years, with consistent improvements according to user feedback. Picturenaut is entirely free.

Enabling Technology 
Picturenaut's consistent multi
threaded architecture makes it the fastest tone mapper in the world. Nothing beats it running Reinhard's Photoreceptor Physiology in realtime on the fullsized image.
tonemapping on the fast lane: 32 Megapixel in realtime on 8 cores
 The latest beta version even branches each image edit into a separate thread
which means you can edit one image while another one is loading. Picturenaut features an open SDK, where 3rd party plugins can take full advantage of it’s multithreading capabilities.In addition to plugins natively written for Picturenaut, it can also work with HDRShopplugins. They integrate seamlessly, and underlying architecture makes them run evensmoother than in HDRShop itself.Picturenaut also handles memory allocation very e
ciently. This enables it to work naturally  with very large images, that could previously only edited in Photoshop. Tonemapping a 300Megapixel panorama? No problem.
