Recovering shadow detail and incorporating HDR looks onto images is incredibly easy inside ON1 Photo RAW 2020.5. In this workflow video, we learn how to use Tone & Color sliders to give photographs a foundation where we can build creative HDR style. Enhancing skies is also an integral part of the HDR look, so once our foundation is set, we’ll use basic Luminosity Masking to transform even the most boring of skies. To finish, we’ll apply and modify our HDR Look Filter to specific areas on our image to make it pops with detail.

Thanks, Volker! I use ScreenFlow – it is, however, only for Mac and not PC 🙁

I expected this to be about HDR, not creating a false image by putting in a substitute sky.

I see you have been to Yosemite. I was there when the falls where extreme
and just extraordinary, met people from all over the world. I like my version better,just saying. Too much work for getting HDR version, I guess not for everyone
altho the results are nice. Thanks for the tutorial.

Always enjoy your tutorials, and this was no different. Reminds me of my darkroom work days, spending hours fine tuning an image, regardless if it was B&W or Color. The first process, was in the development of the film stage and mostly for B&W. Then, using carboard images cutout, including a tiny hole for burning, etc, into the image on paper. Even those that seem to enjoy using your hands for shadow puppets, we did that for “effects” on our images.
The “nice” thing about having ON1 P-R 2020, you don’t waste paper after paper and chemical fine tuning an image. I know there are the so called purists out there, and they should stop speaking to the choir. They have no real idea what they are saying, but everyone “needs” to be heard ( just like what’s his name, oh yeah, the no clue Donald T, grins).
Keep up the good work you all. Cheers

Dylan, I enjoy your videos very much. I would love to see what you do after editing. Do you hit done or export. This is where I am having problems getting On1 to save my edits. Thank you for any help you might provide. Janet

Maybe it’s my computer, but I thought the sky looked totally blown out in your edit. Confusing.

That was wonderful, thank you. Are they On1 skies, I seem to have lost mine?

At the very beginning it took me a while to have the same screen as you, until I discovered that clicking on layers is necessary to show the mask information. Good video!

Hi Dylan, Great video really useful…. Any chance you can do one about selecting items to say remove/clone areas of image etc as there is NO poylgon selction tool in OnRaw which I really miss in PS ?
