Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, HDRMerge is an open source tool used for fusing raw images in a single raw image with extended dynamic range. Among others, it has support for importing LibRaw supported images, outputing DNG 1.4 images and the bottom toolbar that enables the users to remove the ghosts from the resulting images, before exporting it to DNG.
Also worth mentioning, in order to use HDRMerge, the raw images you want to fuse have to be made by the same camera. The latest version available is HDRMerge 0.5.0, which has been recently released. Unfortunately, the changelog is not yet available.
In this article I will show you how to install HDRMerge 0.5.0 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, LXLE 14.04, Peppermint Five, Linux Lite 2 and other Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing HDRMerge 0.5.0 on Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the hdrmerge package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install hdrmerge
To start the app, open a terminal, type hdrmerge and hit enter.
Optional, to remove hdrmerge, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove hdrmerge
