Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Finishing an image, part of Shooting and Processing High Dynamic Range Photographs (HDR).
I want to continue with the image of the three boys that we worked on in the last movie.…I am just going to open up the version that we had saved.…This is the one where we've already done noise reduction and fixed the…chromatic aberrations.…So I am going to open it up again in Photoshop. You should have saved version of…this from last time.…If you're not familiar with what I just did there, the way the windows just…popped up, in Photoshop you can zoom in and out of an image with Command+Plus and…Command+Minus and if you hit Command+0 it blows the image up to fit as large as it can on screen.…
If you are using Windows you'll be using the Ctrl key instead of the Command key.…So a lot of times during these tutorials you are going to see this kind of thing…happening and I am just using Command+Plus, Command+Minus and Command+0.…I am going to hide Bridge just to keep things from getting confusing here.…So let's think about what else needs to be done with this image.…We've done a lot to it already.…
