Tips for HDR in Photoshop & Lightroom
- Colin Smith of PhotoshopCafe.com has posted a tutorial on creating high dynamic range images using Photoshop, then tone mapping them using Photoshop’s built-in tools as well as HDRSoft’s Photomatix plug-in for Photoshop. Scroll all the way down for a cool theater shot Colin created using these techniques.
- Over on LightroomNews, Sean McCormack covers LR/Enfuse, Timothy Armes’ project to integrate the open-source Enfuse blending program right into Lightroom. LR/Enfuse is available from Timothy’s site & is supported by user donations.
On a slightly related note, if the topic of digital dynamic range is up your alley, you might want to check out Stu Maschwitz’s detailed experiments with video gear.
