Hello everyone.
When I do a 32 bit HDR Photoshop tells me if I want to go to Camera Raw to adjust the tones. It goes to ACR without problems, I make the adjustments and when I tell it to quit ACR, Photoshop flattens the layer and transforms it into 16 bits. I would like to keep the 32-bit version and also as a smart object. How could I do this?

There is a workaround if you have Lightroom.

 

a. With 32 bit image open in Photoshop - Save as a flattened TIFF file (with 32 bit floating point)

b. Import that 32 bit TIFF to Lightrooom

c. In Lightroom use menu  Library >Convert Photo to DNG

d. Still in Lightroom use Photo > Edit in > Open as smart object in Photoshop.

e. This opens a 16 bit Photoshop file with a Smart Object.   Double click on the SO and it will open in Camera Raw using the full 32 bit image
