Lightroom’s New HDR Feature Is Better Than You Think (but you might not be able to see it, until now)

If you don’t have one of the new HD screens, of course, you can’t really see the results from one of the coolest (and perhaps best) new Lightroom features, so a lot of folks are just shrugging their shoulders at this point. But, in comes Terry White with the solution (and a great demo of why this feature is more than it seems and who can take advantage of it). Take a look:

Terry’s video of the screen made all the difference. Well done (and thanks, Terry).

Hope you all have a good weekend. I think Bama is on a bye week this week, and the Bucs…well…sadly, they are who we thought they were. Ugh.


P.S. I have a new online course for all you travel photographers out there. Check out the short official trailer below. Here’s a link to the course (you can buy it for $29, or get it and 1,000+ full-length Lightroom, Photoshop, and Photography courses to stream on-demand, by joining KelbyOne. Again, Here’s the link to this course.

    Hey, HDR works on my iPad Pro 2018… which is nice!

    But, I’ve noticed, if I turn it on and then enable the SDR preview, the images look different to when HDR is turned off. Even if I don’t adjust any settings.

    Maybe I’m misunderstanding something, but I would have though that the SDR preview and HDR turned off should look the same?

    What’s going on here.

    Just thought before pressing ‘send’: I’ve only played with it on already edited images. Perhaps I need to experiment with unedited image to see what happens.
