56344Re: HDR tools for Large Panos
- Mar 5, 2013I may have given you the impression that I know more about Adobe products that I in fact do (next to nothing), but I'm afraid I don't really understand what you are saying.
My files are in the .hdr format which Lightroom doesn't recognise. I am aware that there is a 32-bit photoshop file format but this is not the format my files are in. I haven't heard of 32-bit tiff files unless you mean what I know as BigTiff files.
It seems to me the ways forward are either (1) re-make my HDR files as 32-bit .psb files which means days of re-work or (2) find a way of converting my .hdr files to 32-bit .psb/.tif.
Is that right?
Thanks for your help by the way!
