I just got my first 4K HDR TV. LG OLED55C8PUA

Looks amazing.

But, I'm wondering is there a certain way to go about editing my own photos for viewing on that TV that takes advantage of the HDR abilities?

My Camera is a Nikon D3300, but I also have photos from years back with other Canon cameras I have owned, 20D, 40D, 7D, 5DII.

Would be cool to see my photos again with this new screen, if it's possible or worth the trouble of converting them.

The software I currently have is Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS5



- Nikon D3300
- Nikon 35mm F/1.8
- Sigma 17-70mm F/2.8-4 Cont.
- Tokina 100mm F/2.8 MACRO

HDR10 for UHD TVs gets triggered via the metadata embedded on videos/movies. Not sure how that (metadata) can be applied to JPGs. But your TV does have wider color gamut that I'm sure makes HDR photos standout more than on non-10bit panels.

You need to read up on what HDR protocol your TV supports before you can "convert" your images to something that the TV can display. Perhaps it is HLG (hybrid log gamma) or something similar - HDR content is streamed with metadata instructing the TV on how to interpret the footage so that HDR and non-HDR TVs can display the content accordingly. Your TV has no idea what your intent is if you simply try to display a true (i.e., 32 bit per channel) HDR image from your computer on your TV.

See: https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Hybrid_Log-Gamma (external link)

for example.

JPEGs are not HDR - you would need to process your HDR image data into a format that is supported by the TV.
