sangrededragon says:

QuantumApparatus says:

TutorVidCom says:

haha, yep – you guessed it

U3erpru7ser says:

Nice picture and great tutorial.
Not properly mounted the lens hood, perhaps?

Gela Gh says:

Thanks so much!!! VERY VERY helpful! 🙂 

lesayen26 says:

why do you need a raw image ? and how do you acces the first screen ?

Savagetechdude says:

Good TuT, but it’s a lot more work then someone needs to do. You can do all this in ACR with one raw file using gradients and the adjustments brush. There is no need to create two images to merge in photoshop

Raditram says:

that original picture had some serious vignetteing

pelermon says:

Unfortunately your 4 min tutorial is going to take me at least a day to learn. But once I have it down, it should be fun to use.

lopzag says:

are the necessary tools to do this included in Photoshop Elements, or do you need the full package?

TutorVidCom says:

Yeah, I should try to talk a little slower. If the overall tutorial goes too fast, press the pause button in between steps so you can follow along on Photoshop

croatia in the building!

ninja78 says:

nice vdo…but it is too fast….

Mitchell Moss says:

(comment below) wtf are you talking about? This tutorial took about 4 minutes and produced a beautiful image..

nawoalanor says:

My previous post I made at around 2/3 through the video. I just finished the video and I think I was being too kind.

This technique for creating an HDR image is so staggeringly terrible that I don’t even understand how someone would come up with it. It requires at least a working knowledge of photoshop but at the same time it ignores the most obvious basics.

It’s like you took a one-week “Photoshop Basics” course but only attended a couple of days and spent most of that time texting.

nawoalanor says:

This is a 5/10 tutorial for this one specific scene type, at best a 2/10 for HDR in general. This is a completely wrong, unnecessarily complicated, and hacky technique.
