Now, I've been telling you, ad infinitum so far, that Photoshop cannot invent anything. It cannot make up detail. For example, the Smart Sharpen command does not reach into your image and refocus it. The Image Size command, when you're up-sampling, an image cannot make up new detail inside that image. It can't take, for example, some text on a sign and make it more legible. And in just the same manner, HDR Toning cannot invent new luminance levels. So you start with an 8-bit per channel image, you convert it over to the high bit depth 32-bits of data per channel space, basically run a few edge-detection algorithms in the case of local adaptation, and then convert it right back down to 8-bits of data per channel.

But where did the new luminance levels come in? You're just basically taking the old luminance levels and making them look better. Well, HDR Pro is different, and that's because you give it way more information to work with. So here I am looking at the contents o...
