In this video tutorial I’ll be discussing some of the tools available in Photoshop to help us blend together one or more exposures without the use of HDR tools. The reason I often like to blend exposures manually is that it gives me more control of the specific areas being blended and tends to produce a more natural and less noisy looking image than traditional HDR processing does. Some of the tools that will be discussed include:

  • Image alignment
  • Channels based selection and adjustment
  • Layer blend-if
  • Apply image

These tools are available in Adobe Photoshop CS3 and onward.
