Here I was just doing my daily Web surfing when I came across a Youtube video by Michael James. In this video, he compares various ways of creating HDR images. The one that caught my attention was Lightroom plugin Enfuse. The reason it caught my attention was the fact that I could create an HDR image directly in Lightroom without ever leaving Lightroom! I’m all about workflow efficiency and this option sounded great. If you missed my Photoshop tutorial on HDR, you can also check it out.
The best news of all is that it does work really well. In this Lightroom tutorial, I’ll show you how to install, configure and use the Enfuse plugin. But before we get to the video, here’s what you need to do first.
1- Download and install the Enfuse application. You need to have the application installed for the plugin to work.
2- Download the Enfuse Lightroom plugin HERE (top right). It’s donationware. You can still use it without a donation but your images will be saved at 500px.
3- Unzip and put the LREnfuse.lrplugin folder in your desired location.
The rest of the steps are shown in the video, so let’s get right to it!
