Low resolution and severe noise issues with HDR

Beitragvon Stonefury » Do Jun 04, 2009 5:18 pm

I am attempting to use Artweaver for post-processing of HDR tonemapped images. I started by converting my 3 exposure-bracketed raw files to full-size, full quality Jpegs with resolution of 300 dpi and noise reduction applied. I then made these into an HDR and tonemapped using the trial version of Dynamic-Photo HDR. I saved the result as a jpeg, also with 300 dpi resolution.

The problem is, when I open this jpeg in Artweaver it looks awful. There is a terrible grain/noise in the sky which is obvious even viewing a small 12% magnification image. It looks much worse than the DPHDR output that I saved, and when I view the same file in other programs it looks much better. It looks like the resolution has been dramatically reduced, and when I looked at the image size I found that it had been reduced to 72 dpi. When the same file was opened in photoshop it remained 300 as I had saved it, but reducing this to 72 dpi still didn't reproduce the problems that I see when I open it in Artweaver.

So one question is, is there any way to get Artweaver to preserve resolutions higher than 72 when I open high resolution jpegs?

Another question is, why is it ravaging the HDR? after tone-mapping and saving as a jpeg it should just treat it like any other jpeg I would think, but when I open any of the 3 jpegs I used to make the HDR, they look like they should (besides being reduced to 72 dpi which is pretty subtle). The same problems appear in other HDR images too.

A third issue, mostly just an annoyance, is that once I've opened a file from the "HDR" folder (whether HDR or normal jpeg), if I go up one directory and then into my "jpegs" folder, I get error messages when I try to open any of those files. Something like "Cannot open "G" because the file could not be found." If I close and restart the program, I can open these files then, but only until I open something from the HDR folder after which I again get this error.

Can you help at all with any of these problems?

which color space do the JPEGs use? Is this RGB or another space? Because Artweaver only support RGB, a conversation is performed for other spaces.
