4413Re: HDR and RAW processing
- Dec 1, 2006Well, I haven't yet read the articles but from my own worflow I know
that you usually wouldn't touch exposure sliders when you have real
backeted shots (preferably I shoot them as JPGs).
You only fiddle with the sliders if you want to get "artificially"
bracketed shots from a single RAW exposure. But that's a different
(and long) story ;).
Just try it out and you will see.
