Experiments in HDR – G0AFH Amateur Radio & Photography ramblings
Jun 152013
 

About 10 years ago I attempted to create a few High Dynamic Range (HDR) images. It was a time consuming process that involved manually aligning three or more images on different layers, then merging them into one. At that time I had access to an old copy of Photoshop at work. The technique sort of worked but took hours to complete and I was never really happy with the results.

Software and processing power has moved on in leaps and bounds since them. Today I use Paintshop Pro as my editing tool. It’s comparitively cheap and easy to use. Whilst browsing the help for something else I noticed that it had an HDR merge facility built in so decided to give it a try.

The source images were all taken hand held so alignment wasn’t perfect. Even so the tools in PSP have done remarkably well. I have to say that I find most of the presets to be not quite right, but they work as a starting point.
