  Description     : set of command line programs for editing HDR images

 pfstools package is a set of command line (and one GUI) programs for reading,
 writing, manipulating and viewing high-dynamic range (HDR) images and video
 frames. All programs in the package exchange data using a simple generic file
 format (pfs) for HDR data. The concept of the pfstools is similar to netpbm
 package for low-dynamic range images.
 pfstools come with a library for reading and writing pfs files. The library
 can be used for writing custom applications that can integrate with the
 existing pfstools programs.
 pfstools offers also a good integration with a high-level mathematical
 programming language GNU Octave. pfstools can be used as the extension of
 Octave for reading and writing HDR images or simply to store effectively large
 Note that pfs in not just another format for storing HDR images (and there are
 already quite a few of them). It is more an attempt to integrate the existing
 file formats by providing a simple data format that can be used to exchange
 data between applications.

The long description has been extracted from the homepage. I guess it will
improve before uploading the package.
