Hi Kimberley,

There are quite a few "free" apps that you can get for a Mac that will provide you with a basic HDR image - Luminance HDR, HDRTist, Aurora HDR to name a few - however I have no idea how good the results will be from them, or how much yo can actually edit the photo once created etc.

I use Photoshop on my MacBook for when I want to create HDR shots - I know that isn't the cheapest, or the easiest to use, but you do get a lot more control etc. I'm not sure if you get the options for HDR in Photoshop Elements, but that might be worth looking in to.

Another one to look at might be Picasa - again not sure if you get the HDR compilation options in that app - but it is free, and easy to use.

Hope that helps...
