Turn your JPEG Photos into HDR Images

Turn your JPEG Photos into HDR Images

By Bob Taylor

In this tutorial, PaintShop Professional Bob Taylor shows you how to easily turn an ordinary JPEG photo into a stunning HDR image, using the HDR Merge function. You will learn how to create duplicate layers of your original photo, and then adjust the brightness and contrast on each to create versions that are overexposed, underexposed and normal. Then it’s simply a matter of bringing those photos into the HDR Merge tool and clicking Process. You can choose from a variety of HDR presets, or use the sliders to manually adjust the image to your liking.
