I want to make HDR paintings that can be displayed on HDR TVs and Monitors but photoshop seems to only display SDR. There's no difference in the lumanence from the display of the color White +0 and the color White +1.

 

For me HDR is one of the most important display innovations since HD and making content based around it even images would be useful. Since many image viewers support HDR color now days.

 

I'm sure there would also be benefits for things like games which HDR textures are very useful and being able to better visually read value differences beyond +0 would be useful.

 

I know premiere supports display HDR, so I also imagine it would be useful for making sprite/image effects for video, or animation.

Does it help if you enable the Precise Color Management for HDR Displays option in Preferences? They added it several months ago. It’s under the Technology Previews category which means they don’t consider it finished, but if you find any problems you could report them and help make it work right.

Sorry, I didn’t realize this was Mac only at this time, thanks Greg for confirming (Hey, I just watched your excellent video on star trails!). I’ll upvote this request.

Thanks, @Conrad C 

Agreed, I'd love to see broad support of HDR. With video/games leading the way, there's a lot of latent capability out there. Computer monitors are lagging for many, but the latest Apple XDR displays are unreal. Browser support will hopefully pick up quickly. @ZBalling's HDR AVIF image in this thread is a good example - won't currently render on Safari (AVIF support coming this fall to MacOS), looks nearly black on the current FireFox, but looks great on Chrome.
