I've been trying to have a play with the HDR function of HDR today. I've got 3 versions of the same RAW in TIFF format (-2, +2 and 0 exposure) but when I try the HDR funtion it says that there is not enough dynamic range to contruct a HDR image :confused:

How much range do you need???

CS2 is very fussy about HDR and really doesn't like doing it when all the files come from one RAW file. You have to take multiple exposures. Alternatively, use Photomatix

Nope...still getting the same.
From 1 RAW i've produced 5 TIFFs at -4, -2, 0, +2, +4 exposure adjusted in Adobe Brisge.
Yes, you need to use images not taken from 1 RAW file.

Tried photomatix too. It works but when I try and open the TIF file in CS2 it's just all white.

Somebody up there doesn't like me today :D

How many times have you used Photomatix though? As it did the same white thing for me and might be due to limited uses only.
