    Question HDR Question

    I have tried HDR and while in the iPhone it shows which version of the picture is HDR, is there any way to tell which is HDR on your PC after the download? (other than eyeballing which picture looks better?) Does the original always get the first number in the file name?

    If you're downloading it into iPhoto, I don't think it does. You have to eyeball it. iPhoto only tells you if an image is shot in RAW mode. HDR is just a "moniker" Apple uses to mean that the picture is enhanced. It's really not truly "HDR" in the real sense. An HDR photo is usually obtained from a photo shot in RAW mode on a DSLR camera, and post-production is used to render the photo as HDR quality. So that' s why the HDR badge is not used in iPhoto, since HDR is usually meant as a post-production enhancement, and not an actual shooting "mode", per se. It's just a fancy selling tool for Apple, when all it does is adjust the ISO and brightness of the original photo for the most part.
