In the Photoimpact user guide, on pages 69 and following, are the pages dedicated to HDR in Photoimpact, It is defined as the variation in the scale of light that can be captured in a photo, from the darkest shadows to highlights.
And also I visited various blogs and tutorials, such as: The Steen G. Bruun, about Camera Curve profiles and HDR in Photoimpact. And the tutorials: http://suscribe.ru/archive/com.soft.graph.uleadpi/200503/28001429.html,
Many photographs I have taken are not correctly exposed, because either the lights shine overmuch or the shadows are too strong or vice versa, leaving completely burned areas or skies without information.
As I do not have several shots with different exposures of a photograph, I am interested in doing it with a single photograph. The photographs I use are in JPG format.
These photographs were taken in Toledo, in September 2010, the only thing that I remember that is it was sultry wheather and scorching sun and many photographs in the alleys left the shadows dark and the lights too strong, because the camera could not cover the entire range dynamic of the image.
Also I tried to do it with a night photography from the hotel window. But it did not go as I expected, so I made it monochrome.

Thank you very much Mary, for your comments, I will add a small explanation of the photographs in the file:
Photographs ordered by a number, is the test I did for poorly exposed photography, with the intention of improving it.
Number 1 is the original photograph.
The no. 2 is applying perspective correction, so that the street does not appear to be narrowed by the roof.
The no. 3, it is the application of Smart curve, as if it were a KODAK camera, which is the one with the most color.
and # 4 is the end result after messing around with the Photo Impact HDR handles.
The other photographs is a failed attempt, due to the appearance of noise, which I could not save by editing it for Black and White.
