How do I use HDR in Photoshop CC?

Last updated on September 23, 2022 @ 8:11 pm

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a technology that lets you create images with greater detail and vibrancy than what is possible with standard photography. In Photoshop CC, you can use HDR to create images that are more realistic and colorful.

To use HDR in Photoshop CC, first make a copy of the image you want to HDR. Then, in the HDR mode, open the copy of the image.

In the HDR mode’s dialog box, set the Exposure slider to the left to decrease the brightness of the image, and set the Highlights slider to the right to increase the brightness of the image. The Exposure slider should be set to the left until the image is almost black, and then set to the right until the image is almost white.

To create a HDR image, you need to have a relatively high-resolution image to work with. If you are using a camera that can take HDR photos, be sure to use it to take the high-resolution image.

PRO TIP: HDR in Photoshop CC can be a great tool for creating high-resolution images, but it can also be very resource-intensive. If you are working with large files or on a slow computer, you may experience significant slowdown or even crashes.

If you are using a standard camera, you can still create a HDR image by cropping the image to a higher resolution and then using Photoshop to merge the high-resolution image with the original image.

Once you have set the Exposure and Highlights sliders, you can adjust the Temperature and Tint sliders to create the desired HDR effect. The Temperature slider adjusts the color of the image, while the Tint slider adjusts the color intensity.

You can also use the Hue, Saturation, and Luminance sliders to further adjust the image’s color.
