When i press OK, Photoshop is loading tot make it HDR. But when it close Merge to HDR Pro, than it has to be an .JPG or something. But my .JPG is total black. What’s go wrong?

ajwood2001 says:

MrSubielove – there are many great choices out there, including new smaller mirrorless DSLRs. Things I would consider: What type of photography are you interested in? Do you need lots of lens choices? Do you need speed, e.g., sports photography or large print capabilities, e.g., landscape photography? Do you want to shoot video with your DSLR? Do you travel a lot? What’s your budget? Both Canon & Nikon make great entry-level DSLRs. I would also consider the new mirrorless series.

Brolitz Litz says:

AJ, what kind of DSLR camera would you recommend for a beginner?

ajwood2001 says:

– OK. I’ll keep an eye out, and we’ll get to the heart of the issue.

JAGcreation says:

Hi, I will make a video showing you what i mean. Thanks for the help AJ.

ajwood2001 says:

– when you say the photo disappears, does Photoshop crash or are you seeing an error message? Have you tried searching for images shortly after running the merge function? The image might be on your hard drive and it didn’t stay open in PS.

JAGcreation says:

Hi can anyone help me? This is my question:

I’ve been trying to do HDR , but I really don’t know why Photoshop CS5 doesn’t let me use Raw File. Every time i try to merge the 3 Raw pictures to HDR, Photoshop does the work of merging them but when it finalizes they disappear from Photoshop. The only photos Photoshop lets me merge to HDR are the JPG files. Thanks for the help!!!

RonaPerl23 says:
