Have you ever come across a beautiful landscape and had the immediate urge to take out your camera and take a photo? Often you will notice that the photo fails to capture the original beauty of the moment, especially when it is a high-contrast scene. With PhotoPad and its sophisticated HDR processing tool, you will learn how to create an HDR image in just a couple of clicks.
Ensure you have at least three images with different exposures. Ideally, the first image captures a mid-range exposure shot, the second captures the highlights with higher exposure and the third image is a lower exposure shot that captures the shadows.
Tip! For even better results, capture additional photos that represent various exposures between the two extremes.
Download and install PhotoPad Photo Editor. Follow the installation instructions and then launch the program on your computer to begin editing.
Navigate to the Tools tab in the main toolbar and click on the HDR icon. In the dialog, select the dark, medium and bright exposure images by holding the Ctrl key and click Open.
PhotoPad will now automatically align and combine your different images into an HDR image. If you do not want to take multiple images, you can also create an HDR image from a single RAW image with neutral lightning and create different exposure images digitally with PhotoPad.
