Sometimes when working with an HDR image, parts of the image can become over-processed. Thankfully, there is a way to salvage the image by blending back the original photo. In this movie, author Richard Harrington shows two ways to blend back your photo in HDRsoft’s Photomatix Pro.
- Sometimes when working with an HDR image,…parts of the image will become overprocessed.…Maybe there's just too much detail in a certain section…or it's getting a bit dark or muddy.…Fortunately, you have the ability to blend back…the original photo, and this can be done two different ways.…We're continuing to work with an HDR image here.…Here's the original photo…and seven different shots were captured…to show the entire range here in this old mansion,…which was lit by available light…and had a lot of bright sunlight coming in…through the windows.…
There was no electricity in this old mansion.…Let's go over here to the blending section.…I'll close the brush tool from before,…and simply go to Blending.…Now you can do an overall blend…with any of the base exposures,…using the middle exposure,…or the ones that got brighter or darker.…So if the image looks overprocessed,…you can just mix a little bit of the original one in.…You see here blending in that original photo…just toned things down a bit, and that was kind of useful.…
