HDR image blending (tone mapping)

Recommended Posts

There's usually an option in the Menu. On my camera, you have to got to Manual mode, click the menu button, go to the configuration tab, scroll down and click on "Exposure".

Awesome! I had always wondered how this was done. I'm going to go try it right now. I'll post my results when I'm done.

(Although nobody has posted here for quite some time...)

EDIT:

Here's one I made. I tweaked the color a ton and did some color matching with other photos to get it to look surreal. I kinda like it, however it's over exposed. Maybe I'll do better on my next one :P

Just want to throw this out into the public. When I clicked on the links for the sample for curves+ my firewall blocked it from loading. After some investigating I found out it was because it has spyware associated with the link. I am not sure if the spyware is part of the website for what, but I just wanted to let everybody know.

Terrific tutorial, thanks very much.

The Curves+v2.4 is no longer available though I did find Curves+v3.0 by googling. The .dll needs to be installed as well as a .dll that ends in [REQUIRED] (if people are still using this tutorial).

I'm hoping someone can help me though, I am unable to get the recommended reversed 's' curve as the top and bottom points remain in the top right and bottom left corners. Can anyone help on my first HDR project?

I've updated the plugin links in the tutorial.

You can add control points by clicking anywhere there isn't one.

Move a control point by clicking & dragging it.

Right clicking on a control point removes it.

See in the first pic two control points have been used to alter the start & finish points of the curve?

Great tutorial! It has really helped with my understanding of the Curves+ plugin!

Thiiiissss

Someone should really make a plugin for the curves plugin. I know it changes certain colors and other things, but I don't understand much else. Like how you should change the line to make certain colors change/disappear.

Very well written, but it's hard to see the difference between the 3rd original image and the final image, especially when I have to scroll to the top, and back down.

Could you move them so they're side by side?

This is still a great tutorial.  Unpinning due to potential incompatibility of Gaussian Blur+ with Paint.NET v4.
