"Want to create a 32bit tiff for Lightroom adjustment. How?"


US
          

So this is what I want to do. I love lightroom so much. I really know how to work it. One thing others are doing is merging bracket sets into a single tiff without doing any tone mapping. Then taking that file into lightroom and getting great results with it. I want to try it out.

Im wondering what software is out there that will let me combine the photos into a tiff without doing any tone mapping. Hopefully something cheap or free. I know photoshop CS6 can do it. But its not cheap.

It looks like Enfuse might be what I am looking for. I know it does 16bit but not sure about 32. Im also not sure how much of the information it actually keeps or how it converts raw.

Any of the more popular HDR programs can merge the bracketed set of images without tone mapping. Simply output the finished merged file to a TIF and then import to Lightroom. Usually a merged 32-bit color file is excessively flat, lacking in contrast, color, and tone. Although I have not tried to finish process an HDR image that has not been tone mapped at least to some degree in the HDR programs first I would think your ability to resurrect adequate contrast and color would be difficult.
