Last week review 47/2014
Last week review 47/2014 and the weather is not like november, it feels like spring ……
In this weeks [post id=2918]article[/post] we took a look on how the resulting HDR image is affected by optimizing the base pictures first or itf it is sufficient to use the raw images and develop the resulting HDR TIFF image.
Especially on critical captures you should optimize the base images first, to get more detail in the highlights and/or shadows. I develop the base images first in Lightroom because at least the lens correction is done on the image, because this is part of my [process id=354]import[/post] process. Usually i optimize shadows and highlights in the base images, before i export them as TIFF16 images to process them either in [post id=292]SNS-HDR[/post] or Photomatix. Depending on motiv and exposure range the differences are very small, but my advice is to first process the base images.
This week wordpress published the new version 4.01. The rlease contains many bugfixes and also updates a couple of the system libraries. In some blogs you might find informtaions about 404 errors after upgrading which didn’t accour here in this blog. I only can state that the update and the update of a couple plugins worked out without any problems.
Adobe released the new Lightroom version 5.7, which contains support for a couple new cameras and new lens profiles. Everyone awaiting a RC Version from Lightroom 6 now is disappointed. Aling with the new Lightroom version Adobe Camera Raw and the DNG converter got updated to version 8.7. This update lead to an update of almost every application of the Adobe Creative Suite, like Photoshop and Premiere Pro.
I hope that some of the articles on this blog gained your interests and i look ahead to your comments/suggestions. And don’t forget, i installed a feed for you via feedburner . So have i nice weekend, til the next time.
