Photosphere 1.0 for Macintosh

If any of you Radiance users out there are running Mac OS X, I welcome you to download and test drive the application I've been working on in my spare time for the past couple of years, called Photosphere. I just put together the first official release (1.0), and it's hanging off the Radiance website at:

For those of you who attended last year's workshop, I gave a little talk on this program, which Peter has made available at radiance-online:

(I renamed it from "Photophile" to "Photosphere" based on some derogatory feedback.)

In addition to providing a means to catalog and browse regular and high dynamic-range images (including JPEG, TIFF, Radiance, LogLuv TIFF, and ILM's OpenEXR format), Photosphere can also build HDR images from hand-held, bracketed exposures. (This is a first, as far as I know.) Eventually, I hope to port this to Linux and Windows, but I'll probably need some help on this. Ian Ashdown keeps saying he'll work on this, and I believe he will, but not until he gets a few more urgent projects taken care of....

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions. I'd be very happy to hear them.
