Using the Amount Slider with Creative Profiles in Lightroom and Camera Raw

Most Creative profiles in Lightroom and Camera Raw have an Amount slider which can be used to vary the strength of the profile. (I say “most” because the creator of the profile has the option to disable the effect of the Amount slider).  Note: the Raw profiles that Adobe ships do not have an Amount slider.

It’s easier than ever to create raw, high dynamic range, raw panoramas using the new Merge to HDR Panorama feature in Adobe Camera Raw. Instead of having to first merge each of the bracketed exposures together and then stitching the resulting HDR files together, you can now do both at once with the new Merge to HDR Panorama command. The video below demonstrates how.
