Dramatic Images Unleashed

Educator Jim Nix shows how to create a classic HDR image with punchy details and vivid colors.


Begin with the HDR Basic filter because it perfectly reveals the colors hidden in shadows. Use Image Radiance for photos taken at sunset or sunrise as it softens the image without losing details. Top and Bottom Tuning is cool when you want to alter exposure and add some warmth either in the top or the bottom of the picture. Color Toning also boosts sunsets.


Your dramatic image is complete!
