More Beyond HDR in Photoshop CS5



Do you ever look at other people’s amazing HDR images and wonder why your HDR images never quite look as good? Well you’re not alone. In fact creating a really great HDR takes more than simply merging a series of images together in your chosen HDR software. You’ll need to go beyond HDR.

So in this video I’m going to give you an insight into my HDR processing using Photoshop CS5 and my post HDR processing techniques using Adobe Camera RAW

    Yet another brilliant video and exactly why whenever someone asks me something about photoshop I point them to you (keeps them off my back whilst I work it out as well!).

    Thanks Gav.

    Just a brillant tutorial Gav.
    But the image that you produced in the tutorial is slightly different than the cover picture. Could you please tell us how you did this warm light that seems to come out of the window.

    Best Regards,


  3. Marc… Just little differences is in the amount of vibrance & saturation combined with a slight shift in White Balance adding together. The fact that sometimes it’s not an exact science is what I love about Photoshop.

  4. Brilliant as always Gavin ! If you remember I asked you this question too , that do you have any tutorials about HDR ? and there you are !!!!!!!! Thanks a lot :o)
    Can you please tell me what should we keep in mind while selecting the images which are going to be combined for HDR ? Like whats more imp? the different apertures? or the shutterspeed as well?
    Thanks :o)

    Interesting tutorial. But why bother with Photoshop’s HDR feature when there are far better HDR software programs like Photomatix and Oloneo PhotoEngine available? Check them out. You’ll be amazed at the wealth of options.
