Google Ultra HDR support

Post by Azzzaza »

Is it possible to support the new Google Ultra HDR format? Here's the official library: The format looks pretty interesting as it allows combining SDR + HDR versions of the same image in 1 JPG file.

And sorry if this is not a proper place to ask a question, but what format do I need to use to be able to preview my HDR images? I tried all the HDR output formats supported by Adobe Lightroom, but none of them was displayed correctly in XnView MP, some images were almost completely dark, and some had washed out colors. The same images when saved in JPG/JPEG XL/AVIF and then imported into Apple Photos were rendered correctly.
