I’m excited to announce that Lightroom mobile now includes the ability to capture raw, high dynamic range (HDR) images! In the Lightroom mobile app, tap the camera icon and then choose HDR from the drop down at the bottom of the screen. Lightroom mobile automatically analyzes the scene to determine the appropriate spread of exposure values over three shots (most other apps only average two exposures). Then, Lightroom automatically aligns, de-ghosts, and tone maps the image, creating a 16-bit floating point DNG file which can then be edited as desired. The resulting DNG file offers a much larger dynamic range than a singe raw file while maintaining all other advantages of a raw file such as higher bit-depth per color, lack of JPEG compression, and the ability to address white balance after capture with no loss of information! Although, HDR files are larger, I believe the superior image quality and greater editing flexibility are well worth the increase in file size.

High Dynamic Range Software and Techniques Digital cameras have a come a long way in the past ten years, and now a RAW file from a full frame camera can have a 12 stop exposure range. (Though it is in reality actually rather more difficult to extract the full range). There are many situations when this will not be enough, resulting in blown highlights and shadows dominated by noise.

LR/Enfuse - Blend Multiple Exposures Together in Adobe Lightroom LR/Enfuse is a Lightroom plugin that allows you to blend multiple exposures together directly from within Lightroom by using the open source Enfuse application. With LR/Enfuse you can: Blend images of different exposures together in order to create a natural looking image with a greater dynamic range. Blend a series of images where the focus point is difference in order to create an image with a greater depth of field - this is a common approach when creating a macro image. Blend a series of images for night photography image stacking in order to create an image with a longer exposure than is possible with a single frame.

How to Shoot in Low Light 9 Commonly Asked Questions This image of Moon Rise over Marietta, Ohio was taken 20 minutes after sunset during the Blue Hour when the sun had set and the sky was a dark blue.

Using Lightroom Brushes to Soften Skin One really powerful part of Lightroom is the brushes feature. Brushes give you the ability to effect only a part of the image by brushing on a mask that you can apply effects to. This is just like creating masks in Photoshop. There are tons of uses for brushes in lightroom from dodging and burning to local color adjustments. Today I am going to talk about using Lightroom Brushes to Soften Skin.

48 Special Effects Photoshop Actions Considered difficult to master, actions are often overlooked by most Photoshop users. It’s true that actions are not as simple to use as layer styles or even as Photoshop plugins, and that the concept of automation has always be beyond the scope of most us. But if you take a closer look at Photoshop actions, you will find that they are easy to understand and can help you automate your hard work, such as applying a series of repetitive changes to a group of images, for example. An action no more than a recording of a series of tasks performed in Photoshop. Once created, you can apply that action on an image or a series of images. You can even make an action to create an image from scratch.

Albertdebruijn.com This is a set of 2 presets with a wonderful warming effect. The resulting warm look is further enhanced with a vignette.The preset works equally well with JPEGs and Raws. As the name implies, it adjusts the white balance to add a wonderful warm tone to the image. It “tightens up” the dynamic range by applying a little fill light and recovery, boosts the saturation and then “sharpens” the overall image by using a combination of Clarity (mid-tone contrast enhancement) and sharpen sliders. There are two presets in this pack.
