Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Ghosting and HDR Efex, part of HDR Photography: Shooting and Processing.
HDR Efex has a ghost removal mechanism built-in for removing those ghosty…artifacts that can occur when something moves between frames in a bracketed set.…It's pretty easy to use.…It's only somewhat effective.…I am going to launch into a merge of the bracketed set here in HDR Efex,…and when I get my Merge dialog, which lets me choose which images to merge,…that's already filled out,…I have Ghost Reduction Method.…You've got a couple of choices here.…Adaptive or Global.…We will leave it on Adaptive, but set the strength up really high.…
Hit OK and that's going to work here.…As for how much strength you should use and what the trade-offs are, use too…much strength, you can start introducing other artifacts.…So you don't want to go any higher than you have to.…As for Adaptive or Global, it really depends on how spread out your…ghosting problems are.…So you may just have to experiment and the experimenting can be a little slow…because you have to do a full merge every time.…But as you use it more and more, you will probably start to recognize, oh,…
