Automatic high-dynamic range image (HDRI) generation from low-dynamic range images (LDRIs) offers a solution to conventional methods, which require a static scene. The method consists of two modules: a camera-alignment module and a movement detector, which removes the ghosting effects in the HDRI created by moving objects.
