    Default How to do...?

    Hi, I have seen a lot of mentions about HDR in CS. I would like to know how I can go about doing that. Need any special software? Must shoot in RAW to process into HDR?

    Another thing I would like to know is about panorama pictures. May I know what software are you guys using to stitch together your pictures? I hope to learn how to do it since I travel frequently and love taking pictures of beautiful scenery.

    Your precious assistance is greatly appreciated~

    you could try to use photomatix...software that can achieve HDR..

    stitch- you can use autostitch
    http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/autostitch/autostitch.html for a begginer guide to autostitch

    correct if i'm wrong

    not sure if raw can, but usually people use jpegs.

    my suggestion is not to use cs2 to stitch panoramas.. althjough it does have that function.

    most programs cost money though, the ones with good results, last i checked

    Adobe Photoshop CS2 and above has a merge-to-HDR function, where you can merge jpegs of different exposures together. I've never really used it, although I have heard that it is not as effective as dedicated programs, such as Photomatix, as suggested above.

    Photoshop can stitch photos pretty effectively. There are also dedicated programs available. Go Google "HDR" and "Photo Stitch" and you'd find the programs.

    Hugin is free and works pretty well
    CS4 has much better stitching capability
    Photomatix is one of the good HDR software in the market.

    Thanks for all the advise! Hope to try it out once my tripod is in. Saw on some sites that tripod is a MUST! So I guess my HDR testing will only ensue once I have my tripod.
