Set image white points before merging to HDR

Added on Friday 27th of July 2007 02:21 am EST


Adobe Photoshop CS2

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


I've attempted to merge to HDR a few times without success. I get to the point where it allows you to set the white point, but I get stuck. How do you get separate white-point slider buttons to show for each image?


There isn’t an option to set the white point for each individual image once you’re in the Merge To HDR dialog box. In fact, the white-point slider below the histogram, shown in Figure A, is for setting the white point for the image preview, not the final HDR image.

The brightness levels in an HDR image exceed what you can view on a standard monitor. This image preview is stored in the 32-bit HDR file to display when you open the image in Photoshop.
