For the uninitiated who are coming across this question, Wikipedia says: "In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows. [...]" See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging –  Chris W. Rea Aug 15 '09 at 13:29

You can try downloading qtpfsgui. You will need QT4, but the download link and instructions are included in the above link. I hope this helps.
