PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate includes a variety of enhanced HDR features, including Exposure Merge features which allow you to preview HDR photo alignment and create black and white HDR photos. For added functionality, the Single RAW Photo feature allows you to split an individual RAW file into three images and then selectively recombine them to create an HDR-style effect.
