Since the early 2000s, high dynamic range imagery has been a highly active research topic that has already generated many scientific publications and many image-processing algorithms. Thanks to these breakthroughs, HDR imagery has spread to all digital imagery domains: capture, image processing, editing, computer vision, compression, and quality metrics. Today, there are a number of HDR imagery standards that are dedicated to broadcast, display and movie theaters to name a couple.
Even if many methods have been proposed to process, to compress or to retarget HDR images (such as tone mapping HDR content to SDR and SDR tone expansion to HDR), there are still a number of challenges to overcome. For instance, tone retargeting HDR content is still an open question when considering movies (images sequences), immersive omnidirectional contents, or virtual-reality computer-generated contents. Recent scientific publications tackle specific HDR imagery use cases such as tone mapping omnidirectional HDR content for virtual reality headsets. Moreover, image color appearance models, visual quality metrics, aesthetics assessment, and computational models of visual attention are still at an early stage of research and development. Recent deep-learning-based approaches have emerged and have boosted performance. However, the emergence of such approaches is slowed down due to several key factors, such as the lack of large-scale HDR content datasets and the non-trivial extension of SDR-based networks to the peculiarities of HDR content.
The scope of this Special Issue dedicated to HDR imaging covers topics from HDR content visual perception (color appearance, aesthetics, quality, saliency), HDR content processing/editing, HDR datasets, and HDR capture/display.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
