A newer option in Photoshop’s ACR and Lightroom is the ability to work with HDR photos. These programs can now work in 32 bit mode. What this means to you is the ability to make the enhancements that you are used to with an excption. You are able to work with merged HDR images, meaning that you have a lot more tonal range, or details in shadows and details in highlights to work with. The result is a photograph that looks very close to what you witnessed with your eyes. This is not a tutorial on the basics of HDR and stylized looks, we have that tutorial here.Rather, this is a tutorial on how to achieve the most natural result possible. The adjustments in Camera Raw andLightroom are identical.
