Fake HDR

Hello kids! Here's a tutorial on how to fake a HDR :B
I've got it somewhere on the Internet but I forgot what's the URL. If you happen to know the website please let me know :)

1) Open a file

2) Duplicate the file. You can do that by clicking Layer > Duplicate Layer or just slimply drag the file to the Create a new layer on the layer palette


3) Then, go to Filter > Other > High Pass. Here I used 6.0 pixels. You can adjust it depending on your photo


4) Change the Blending Mode to Vivid Light.


5) After that, merge visible the layer by clicking Layer > Merge Visible or press Shift + Ctrl + E (for PC)


6) Then, duplicate the layer again

7) Select high pass again but this time I used 8.0 pixels



8) Change the Blending Mode to Color and lower the Opacity (I used 40%)



9) Merge visible...again, then duplicate the layer...again :B

10) Then, select Filter > Blur > Surface Blur. Here I used 15 pixels for Radius and 15 pixels for Threshold


11) Then go to Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All


12) Merge visible...again. But this time you don't have to duplicate the layer (pheww!). Go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. I've used 100% for the Amount, 40.0 pixels for Radius and 0 for Threshold. You can adjust it depending on your photo or if it's HDR enough for you :D


So, that's all kids. Enjoy. For more information about HDR, go google it. Hehe
