HDR Toning is a fantastic new feature in Adobe Photoshop CS5! You should definitely try it out and you will love it!
HDR Toning adjustment is primarily designed for 32-bit HDR images, but it can also be applied to 16-bit as well as 8-bit images. If applied to 8-bit images, it creates an HDR-like effect. This is the example I am going to show you today. An 8-bit image converted to an HDR-like effect in a very easy way.
HDR Toning command allows you to apply the full range of HDR contrast and exposure settings an individual image.
Here are the before and after and tomorrow I will post a video showing how I achieved this effect.
Have a wonderful day and see you tomorrow 🙂
