Hi, I have never tried HDR and may want to attempt my first try. What software do I need to achieve HDR using steps that are easy for a beginner? Thanks! :)

Photomatix Pro is easiest to use.

Photoshop is a bit more complicated.

u also need abt 3 or more exposures of the same photo to do a HDR.

Shooting 3 individual frames will carry more pixel information when doing HDR/tone mapping and will give u a cleaner image. I would use tripod when possible..

one of my friend yapster used to do handheld bracketting as well :bsmilie: worth a try if u have steady hands and where a tripod is not available.
