Hi Sebastian,

Here, try this: I'm not sure how you are viewing your files, either in Explorer or Bridge, but either way, select all of the images that were used to make the HDR and open them all up in ACR.

Then IN ACR, be sure all of the images are selected and go up to the small dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the thumbnail and select "Merge to HDR..."

You will then be presented with a window to let you get rid of any ghosting, DO NOT USE THIS, IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU QUALITY IMAGES, just click OK and let ACR create the HDR for you.

If you wish to avoid that window I just told you about, you can press "Shift-Option/Alt-m and that will bypass that window.

Either way you'll now end up with a new HDR, DNG image that you can further refine to your eyes desire.

Re: Merge to HDR PRO with ACR

Hi Sebastianb,

Could you please let us know which exact version of Photoshop you're working on and which operating system are you using?

Are you using Merge to HDR feature available in Photoshop or Camera raw plugin?


Could you please try the steps below and let us know if it helps?

Set File Handling preference and Image Mode in Photoshop

To apply the Camera Raw Filter to a 32-bit (HDR) image in Photoshop:

  1. Make sure that the 32 bit to 16/8 bit option is enabled. To enable this setting:
    • Choose Edit > Preferences > File Handling.
    • In the File Compatibility section of the Preferences dialog, check the box labeled Use Adobe Camera Raw to Convert Documents from 32 bit to 16/8 bit.
    • Click OK.

Regards,
Sahil
