I’ve put together a complete lesson on creating High Dynamic Range panoramic photos. This video tutorial walks you through a few different tools to try out.
I’ll show you how to:
- Organize multiple HDR photos
- Use Photoshop’s built-in toolset
- Use Adobe Camera Raw to pre-process raw files before the merge
- Align images and reduce noise and ghosting
- Create a batch process with Photomatix
- Enhance images with tone maps and fusion
- Browse preset looks to find a good starting point
- Choose the right bit depth
- Repair white balance issues
- Stitch the panoramic photo with Photomerge
- Enhance with a Curves adjustment
- Crop to a finished size
- Fill in gaps in the photo
This is of course just one way to complete this task. Feel free to combine my techniques with your own approaches.
