FDRTools Advanced Workflow > HDR Generation in FDRTools Advanced 1.8.2

HDR Generation in FDRTools Advanced 1.8.2

Due to its cross-platform Graphical User Interface (GUI) programming, normal drag-and-drop file open functions don't work properly with FDRTools. This means files must be opened through the Open icon, or under Image>Open in the GUI itself. There's no bounding program window with menu commands on a PC, and File>Open at the top of a Mac's desktop works for the Finder, not FDRTools. It's nothing to worry about, but it can be confusing at first.

FDRTools supports these file types: Most Camera RAW formats, JPEG, TIFF, Radiance (.hdr), and Open EXR (.exr).

Click the Open button and browse to the LDR source image series folder, and then highlight the first image to be merged together to generate the HDR. If you don't see the desired source files or the files are grayed out, change the file type drop-down to the file format you want. Repeat this process until all of the desired LDR source images are loaded into FDRTools thumbnails preview window. As each image is loaded, FDRTools attempts to align the images automatically, if necessary.
