Re: HDR Workshop #33 - RAWs from bgray are up - give it a go!

I've never dealt with RAW files - how to I edit them in Elements 10, and then play with the HDR? Sorry, I know this might be a no brainer, but, i just can't seem to get it down.


Here's my general workflow....

Take the RAW files and export them as full resolution JPG's.
Bring these into Photomatix (you can get a free trial version), and edit them there for HDR.
Save as a full resolution JPG.
Take this tonemapped photo, along with the original component photos into Photoshop to do some cleanup.
Save final version as JPG.

This will help a lot...

And then I did a little tutorial here that will go beyond the Stuck in Customs tutorial above.

Thanks so much!

Final call for entries before we go to a vote...
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

I don't seem to be getting any email for threads. Anyone else not getting this? I only post it here because this is the only active thread on my list (I believe).

ARPhot why don't you go ahead and post the RAW photos. Not sure I have any good ones anyhoo!

But, thanks to everyone who voted for me - it was my first try - NO idea anyone would like it!
