Hi all,

Currently, I am using Photoshop Elements 9 and there are no HDR features in it (other than the Photomerge Exposure tool which can combine two pics - mini HDR function).

Photoshop CS5 is way too expensive for me and the other two possible choices are Photomatix Pro 4 and HDR Efex Pro. (which still cost close to USD $200)

I would like to ask if there are other free HDR programs available via internet download which I can use? I just want to try out the effects and see what HDR effects can do to my photographs.

Can you also give me a short explanation of the pros and cons of the programs?
Thanks everyone!

ps: please dun tell me go buy kelong Pirate DVDs, i dun wana get arrested/busted...Cheers!
