    Hey, I have used Snapseed on iOS for years and absolutely love it.

    The 'Drama' (HDR) feature is fantastic and used heavily; plus some of their tweaking and vintage filters.

    Unfortunately, the OSX version of Snapseed was killed when Google bought the company.. aside from the app being older and noticeably lower ability, it doesn't integrate with Photos.

    I'd like a good photo-tweaking app, especially in terms of HDR capabilities, that works with OSX Photos.

    I bought 'Intensify' by 'Macphun' on the OSX app store, which has HDR; but it just isn't right. If it were a musical instrument, I'd just say 'it isn't musical'. Sometimes it works; but you have to do a lot of tweaking to make anything look good - the HDR is just very brash and unsubtle.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    Google Nik complete collection? Has an HDR module and is free.
    I still use the Silver Efex software.
