A High Dynamic Range (HDR) file is a digital image format designed to capture and store a wider range of luminance and color information than standard image formats like JPEG or PNG. In photography and computer graphics, HDR files are used to represent scenes with extreme variations in brightness and contrast. They achieve this by combining multiple exposures of the same scene, each with different exposure settings, to create a single image that preserves details in both the brightest highlights and the darkest shadows.
HDR files typically have a greater bit depth, often 32 bits per channel, allowing them to represent a vast range of colors and tonal values. This extended dynamic range enables HDR images to closely mimic the way the human eye perceives light and color in the real world, resulting in more realistic and visually stunning images. HDR files can be created using specialized software or cameras capable of bracketing exposures, and they are often used in applications like professional photography, computer-generated imagery (CGI), and video production to achieve stunning visual effects and realistic lighting simulations.
To view or edit HDR files, dedicated software like Adobe Photoshop or specialized HDR software is often required. Once processed, HDR images can be converted to more common image formats like JPEG or TIFF for wider compatibility and distribution, but doing so may sacrifice some of the extended dynamic range that makes HDR images unique and visually appealing.

A PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file is a widely used image format that was developed as a replacement for the GIF format, which had limited color support and was subject to patent issues. PNG files use lossless compression, meaning they retain all the original image data without losing quality. This makes PNG ideal for storing graphics, logos, and images with sharp lines or text, as it avoids the artifacts associated with lossy compression formats like JPEG. PNG supports various color depths, including 24-bit true color and 8-bit grayscale, allowing it to represent a wide range of colors and shades.
One of the key features of PNG files is their support for transparency. PNG supports an alpha channel, which allows parts of the image to be transparent, making it perfect for creating images with irregular or non-rectangular shapes that can blend seamlessly into different backgrounds. This transparency feature is particularly valuable for web design and graphic editing tasks, as it facilitates more flexible and visually appealing compositions.
While PNG files provide excellent image quality and transparency support, they tend to have larger file sizes compared to some other image formats like JPEG. This can be a drawback, especially for web use, where smaller file sizes are preferred for faster loading times. However, the advantages of PNG in terms of lossless compression, high-quality images, and transparent backgrounds make it a popular choice in various contexts, including web design, digital art, and image editing.
Our HDR imaging tool will accurately convert your HDR file into a PNG image file using our high quality internal 2D rendering to create your final PNG ready for download. Your HDR file will be analyzed pixel by pixel in order to produce the most accurate conversion possible.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your HDR file to upload. Your HDR file will be uploaded to our servers. When the HDR to PNG conversion has completed, you can download your PNG file straight away.
We aim to process all HDR to PNG conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
If you are converting your HDR file to a format that implements lossy-compression then yes, the quality will be reduced however the loss in quality is usually not noticeable and can result in much smaller file sizes.
No. When converting your HDR file our tool will not perform any resizing of your image and the resulting file will be the same resolution as your uploaded HDR file.
