HDR Tone Mapping
What is Tone Mapping?Tone mapping compresses the tonal values of a high dynamic range image into a lower one. The result is an image with more visible details that would not be seen on an image with lower dynamic range.
How does Tone Mapping Work?Tone mapping works by merging multiple images with different exposures into one image. Each image contains details not visible in another. To take these images, use the Automatic Exposure Bracketing feature on your camera to capture three images of different exposures. You may need to place your camera on a tripod to prevent camera movement.
Tone Mapping MethodsMost common methods :
- Using Adobe Photoshop to merge the images into a HDR file then converting the image to an 8-bit file using local adaptation.
- Using HDRsoft Photomatix to create a HDR file then tone mapping the HDR file into a 8-bit file.
