If you’re looking to quickly create HDR-like images (without the busywork) then Topaz Adjust may be right for you. So, let’s explore the idea of HDR a little!
What is HDR?
Have you ever come across an image that was so surreal with it’s perfectly colored and detailed features? Well, that’s HDR in a nutshell. HDR, or High Dynamic Range, captures the full range of luminosity between lights (highlights) and darks (shadows) in a scene. That means that you get a more brilliant and dynamic range of color and detail in your image.
Traditional HDR (processing) is a multi-step process that requires taking a series of images at different exposures, known as bracketing, and combining the multiple exposures during post processing. This gives you a perfectly exposed image with an attractive balance of highlights, shadows, and details. The downside is that the process of creating HDR can often be tedious and time consuming – and difficult to those that are new to HDR.
How can I quickly create HDR-like Images?
Creating HDR-like images with Adjust simplifies traditional HDR processing by eliminating the excess shooting and processing steps. Topaz Adjust is unique in the fact that it allows you to take a single image and enhance the highlights, shadows, and details in just a few clicks to create a dynamic image. If you are new to HDR processing, Adjust can help you achieve the same look with less work. If you a seasoned pro you might even use Adjust to further enhance your traditionally-processed HDR images for some added WOW!
Check out the images below to see how easy it is to create HDR effects with a single image. The Adjust-Lite image was processed once through Topaz Adjust and features dynamic color and detail. Adjust-Strong was processed twice through Adjust to give it a stronger, bolder, and more detailed HDR-like look. When processing your images, you can apply the effects as strong or as subtle as you’d like.
