Re: HDR with CS5/ Manual Blending
Murray, (mrmonday) I've noticed that you prefer to blend your images manually. Just wondering how you do that. I understand that you have the images aligned in one file on several layers and probably with layer masks, but do you use different blending modes or just mask various items in your composite.
I took this photo yesterday. The Church was in the shade but photomatix produced this composite.
Re: HDR with CS5
Only masks on aligned layers. There are some quick ways to align layers like File>Automate>Photomerge using the Reposition option. There's also File>Scripts>Load Files Into Stack with Align option selected. You can also manually load files into a single image stack and use Edit>Auto Align to line them up. The Edit>Auto Blend with the Seamless Tone and Stacked options are useful if you have already processed the layers - for example if you used the Image>Adjust>HDR Toning and you just want to blend them. Auto Blend adds a mask to each layer and sometimes if it is pretty close all you need to do is teak one or more masks.
Sometimes none of the automations help and then its stacking layers, adding layer masks, and just painting in what you need each layer to contribute much like if you were colorizing a B&W image.
