Re: "Pseudo" HDR?

I think with a single RAW file, you are not so much using HDR techniques as you are just Tone Mapping (either automatically or manually as you mentioned). A RAW file can contain more dynamic range than a JPG, so tone mapping a single RAW file can work well in some cases. I have used SNS-HDR Lite to ...

Re: PWP Seminar(s)

Thank you Bruce, you're very kind. I've been wanting to get back to this project, and now that Version 6 has arrived I will have to carve out some "free" time to produce a couple of new videos. I'm open to suggestions for topics. Mark Thank you!!! That explained the color range selection for masks ...

Re: Masks

Kind of related... Is there a way to save, or retrieve the masks created/used in the 2-Zone and 3-Zone adjustments?

Re: PWP5/6's HDR/Stack Images Transform -- an opinion

I have never tried using PWP for HDR, since I didn't think It could do Tone Mapping. Can you give a brief example of how you do the tone mapping? There is not an automatic tone mapping transform (correct?). Are you doing it manually using masks?

Re: RAW conversion questions

Thanks for all the info! I think I am getting the hang of it.
One other question. Is there a way to open the RAW settings for a file that you have already saved (without having to delete the .WFL file from the file system before opening)?

RAW conversion questions

Not being too familiar with all that is included with converting a RAW, I have some question on what I am seeing in PWP 6. When I open a RAW file in 6.0 beta, it does not seem correct. It is quit a bit darker, and seems over saturated, and there is a pronounced halo effect at dark/light border areas...
