Hey guys, so I'm trying to create some hdr images of a few shots I took yesterday. I was going to buy the 32 bit Photomatix plugin for LR4, but I decided I would try and find a free program first. I chose Luminance HDR.
Problem is, I can't figure out how to import my Raw images from Lightroom into Luminance. It just pops up with an error message, so I tried to use JPEG instead. With a portrait orientation, it seems to have worked fine, but with a horizontal image, it compresses the image, and just in general looks terrible.
So does anyone have any idea how I use Raw images? Or should I just break down and buy the Photomatix plugin?
Here are the images. The first one is the portrait. The second is the horizontal that came out bad.
