- It used to be that if you wanted to do HDR…or high dynamic range imaging with your raw files,…you would need to process them into pixels…over in Photoshop.…But that's no longer the case.…As of Lightroom CC, we're able to do that directly here…in the library module.…So let's take a look at some of the images…we want to use here,…and I'll talk through how this works.…I've got this image that's pretty dramatically underexposed.…And then as I go over, it's a little brighter,…but still underexposed.…This is about what the meter saw.…And then it starts to get brighter,…and so I've overexposed it.…
And the idea of HDR is to combine our images into one…so that we can see a dynamic range…more similar to what our eye sees,…not just highlights or shadows, but the two of them.…Now I've got way too many images here.…I don't need all of these.…What I'm gonna do is just select the first few,…the ones that really have the dynamic range that I want.…In order to do an HDR image, you need at least three images.…Now these ones are not perfectly aligned.…

First, take a look at converting raw-format photos to the DNG format in Lightroom and using its Develop module to improve their contrast, color, and tone. Then find out how to adapt your raw workflow when you're on the move—on a mobile device or simply migrating from an application like iPhoto or Aperture. Next, Bryan switches over to Photoshop and its powerful Camera Raw plugin to optimize raw-format images and video. Along the way, he draws important comparisons between Photoshop and Lightroom, ending with tips for round-tripping back to Lightroom and creating camera profiles to make sure you're getting the most rich and accurate results from both programs.
