I am working on a series and im 7 images in. All of them are HDR in Lightroom but for some reason this one has real bad haloing. What is the best way to remove it?

My experience is to not create the haloing in the first place. There are much better HDR programs than LR. I use Photomatix myself.

I agree. Still, it happens, so take a look at this: Replacing a background behind hair (external link)

Of all the HDR apps, LR is one of the best for not making halos. An example image of what you are experiencing would be helpful.

May not be the easiest, but I come out of HDR with a very flat image and then use luminosity masks to add back in contrast in PS.

That's long winded and, with the right HDR software, is just not necessary. What HDR software are you using?

How effective is photomatix at not creating halos?

I have not used version 6 enough to give an opinion on this but version 5.1 was certainly prone to halos under some circumstances.

easyHDR. It may not be necessary, but it is the method I prefer. But then I do this for non-HDR too (come out of raw conversion quite flat) if I am going into PS and use luminosity masks a lot. I am very particular about any hint of halos though and don't like trying to fix them.

But I do know I'm not the only one that prefers to come out of HDR fairly flat (very flat compared with a lot of HDR) and the process from there. IMO it also has the benefit of being able to vary the local contrast around the image which I think helps make it look more natural.
