Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video When to use Tone Mapping, part of Up and Running with Photomatix Pro.
…Once you've merged your HDR images together you have a fundamental choice…to make and it's presented to you right in the upper left corner.…We have two major processes to chose from.…Tone Mapping is the more common one used by HDR,…and this gives you an enhanced or sometimes stylized look.…You'll notice that what it's doing is it is…combining the exposures together and it applies some compression…by picking different parts of those images.…Now there are three different methods.…
Tone Compression is fairly subtle and lets you just…really see a wider dynamic range then the original image.…We'll explore this more in just a…second, but you see there, it's pretty straightforward.…It's just giving you a slightly more than real type image.…Let's zoom that in a little bit, and you could see.…On the other hand we have Contrast Optimizer.…And this goes much more dramatic.…You see that it's really starting to bring out selective contrast.…It's popping the highlights. Pulling down the shadows.…
Really showing you that dynamic range.…
