    Can you do HDR photos in PS? If so, how? Or is there a special program needed? Lastly, could you do something that looks similar to HDR in PS? Once again, if so, how?

    in that case its - File > Automate > Merge to HDR

    If you can't see it you may need to click 'show more menu options'. ;)

    Everytime I try, PS gives me this message that says " there is not enough dynami range in these photos to contruct a useful HDR" How do I fix that?

    you need to use shots with different exposures... ps doesnt like the 1 raw with different version outputs. ;)

    Heres what Im doing: Taking a picture, then making 2 or 3 versions of it in PS by altering the exposure in PS. Attempting to make the HDR, but it is still giving me that message. How can I fix this?

    yea making different versions of the same shot won't work in ps... when it says "there is not enough dynamic range in these photos to contruct a useful HDR" it is saying that becuase the images aren't from seperate exposures it can't increase the dynamic range. (you may be able to edit the shots to loose the exif data and trick PS but its not worth it)

    So, there a few things you can do... one is to re-shoot, use a tripod and get say 3 exposures of the subject changing the exposure each time. So you end up with one correct exposure, one over and one under.
    Bring the shots into ps and dont alter them in any way (if your shooting raw make sure they dont get the auro correct treatment) and save as tiffs. Then PS will recognise them as usable HDR images.

    The other way is to download Photomatix (or similar) and just use the free to try version (you'll get watermarkes but its good for practice). This will give you more noticable HDR results, and you can try it with the 2 or 3 versions you made in PS, but this is not true HDR and will only give you a certain amount of dynamic range to play with.

    For the strongest HDR results and to create the almost 'cartoon' look use the shooting method i suggested above and use Photomatix set to the strongest settings.

    I should really sticky one of these threads.... if anyone wants to add links etc do so here and i'll stick it.

    I think that is a great idea! The more information we have in an easy to locate thread would be ideal! :thumbup:
