Fun Slides in the Countryside: Create a Realistic HDR Image


In this tutorial we will show you how to generate a realistic looking HDR image from a series of shots taken with different exposure settings.

Original shots:

The same scene under different exposures The same scene under different exposures The same scene under different exposures
The same scene under different exposures The same scene under different exposures The same scene under different exposures


Realistic HDR Image
  • Step 1. Run AKVIS HDRFactory and open a series of shots: click on and select the files. Or you can just drag the images into the workspace of the program.

    You will get an HDR-image generated at default parameters (with the AKVIS Default preset). The result will be shown in the After tab.

    If you wish you can adjust the Tone Mapping parameters but we use the default settings.

  • Step 2. Now switch to the Post Processing panel. Increase the image contrast by moving the gray point to the right.
