Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video HDR toning, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
In my mind, there are two approaches to producing a high dynamic range image. …The first, is to create a result where the image looks like a normal photograph. …But contains a much wider tonal range, than you could possibly capture in a …single image. The other approach creates a hyper …saturated and not exactly realistic interpetation of the scene. …When you only have a single capture to work with, you aren't able to achieve a …true expanded dynamic range in the image. But you can create an interesting …creative effect, by applying the look of an HDR image.…
In this lesson, I'll show you how it's done. …The HDR toning feature in Photoshop will only work on a flattened image. …So if you've already worked on your image, adding Adjustment Layers, for …example, you'll need to choose Image > Duplicate from the menu in order to …create a copy of the image. You'll want to turn on the Duplicate …Merge layers only checkbox, and then click OK. …This will give you a flattened version of your image that you can work with for HDR toning. …
