I have been using HDRMerge for a while, and I’m really happy with it(great results).
There is one feature that I would really like to see implemented on it: SuperResolution
So far I have been using the following workflow:
- Take a burst shot (4 photos with different exposures ev -1/ 0 /+1 /+2)
- Use HDRMerge to blend the pairs of raw photos so that i end up with 2 different raw files (ev -1 with ev+1 and ev0 with +2)
- Resulting 2 different raw files from hdr merge
- Import them into photoshop and do the SuperResolution workflow (upscale 200%, align, median stack blend)
This workflow has less noise and comparable detail to a pure SuperResolution performed exclusively in photoshop(with the 4 raw files taken).
- have to jump to another program to create a SuperResolution shot.
- End up with a PNG file after exporting from photoshop.
Integrate SuperResolution processing on the HDRMerge options window (when it shows the added files ) with options for:
- Image size percent increase (for example: 150%, 200%, 250%…)
- Resample methods available
The SuperResolution would be performed on the RAW files, and then the HDRMerge would take those files and process them as usual.
To achieve a SuperResolution HDR shot from different exposures combined in a single RAW file output
