    So it looks like .jpg images can't be used for HDR?

    I don't know about other software, but you can with CS2.

    Yes CS2 has it own raw editor, but you may need to load the drivers for your model camera, they can be down load PS

    My question is: If you have a RAW file with a good average exposure, can you use it to make the JPGs at different exposures?

    So I install CS2 (drool). I'm excited about being able to take crummy shots I took 7 exposures of and make it into something- at least average (anxiety). The CS2 takes 3 minutes to install (slobber). One minute to register (aw, what the heck). Asks me if I want it to check for updates (might as well). I click "Okie-dokie." Bad move. I am now 2.5 hours into a 5.5 hour download (at 56K dial up) - excitement waning... dry mouth... headache.

    you can, but it wont make a good HDR.... you have to have different exposures to get all the benefits.
