Merging Your Exposures into a Single Shot
Once you’re satisfied you have the right collection of images, open the HDR Express application so you can get started!
- Click the Merge a new HDR Image button to begin the process (see Figure 1).
- Click the blue plus button to search for and select your bracketed image series (see Figure 2), then click the Align Source Images button, and finally select a Reduce Ghosting Artifacts option, based on your subject. Ghosts occur when objects in the scene shift position from one shot to the next (examples: clouds, trees blowing in the wind, or a moving car).
- Click the Merge button, and HDR Express will combine the image data. After waiting several seconds a preview of the HDR photograph will appear, along with all of the editing controls and preset options (see Figure 3).
