Make HDR images with Photoshop Elements 13

The default Photomerge tool blends exposures of your photos. To get prepared to create HDR image, simply take shots of one scene at different exposure values (“EV”) and transfer them to your Mac. To merge the exposure images, follow these steps:

Launch Photoshop Elements, open the photos, click on the Enhance drop-down and select Photomerge Exposure. Click Done and enjoy the result.

The result will be a picture that looks like a natural high dynamic range image. If you are looking for a detailed and stylized HDR effect, you can further edit it in one of three modes or use a dedicated HDR plugin such as Aurora HDR - a perfect alternative to the software like Machinery or others.

The Aurora HDR plugin has a primary task of merging multiple exposures into one superb picture. The built-in tone mapping algorithm saves all the details of the scene from the darkest to the lightest. To get started:

Launch Photoshop Elements 13 and open the photo. Right-click on it, select Skylum Software and Aurora HDR Pro. Take two more actions: click Create HDR and Apply.
