Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Completing the bracketed exposure, part of Using Lightroom and Photoshop Elements Together.
- This is a continuation of the last movie…in which I started to show you…how to use Lightroom and Elements together…to take bracketed exposures of the same scene…and combine them into a high-dynamic-range image,…an HDR image,…that takes tones from all three of the bracketed exposures…and gives you one exposure…with a wider range of tones.…In the last movie,…we made some edits to three raw files in Lightroom…and then passed them over from Lightroom to Elements…to merge them together into a single HDR image.…
Here, I'm working in Elements editor…in the Expert edit work space.…The first step here is to go down to the Photo Bin…at the bottom of the screen.…If your Photo Bin isn't open,…then click the Photo Bin icon…in the bar at the bottom of the screen.…That will reveal the Photo Bin here.…Select all three images,…clicking on the first one,…holding the control key,…that's the command key on the Mac,…and clicking on the other two.…Then go up to the Enhance menu…and choose Photomerge*…and Photomerge* Exposure.…
That sets Elements off trying to join…
