…Let's expose a series of images using fusion, but I want to take…advantage of the intensive method, which…applies a little bit of additional processing.…I'll open these up into Photomatix and we'll merge for fusion.…This was indeed, taken from a tripod. So I'll align and merge them.…Let's switch that to fusion intensive.…Use strength to control the amount of overall contrast, and then of…course dial in a saturation to match the look you're going for.…
With radius, this will impact how much each…of the source images is really weighted and used.…A higher radius will reduce the amount of…halos in the shot, but definitely increases processing time.…Compare that to the single image and you…see that by merging the exposures, we're getting greater…fidelity in the colors and in the textures.…Let's stylize that just a little bit with the strength.…That feels pretty good.…I'm going to apply. All right.…I often find that after running this I like to add some additional contrast in.…
Note that that really finished that off quite well.…
