HDR Images with The GIMP by kinkowski HDR Images with The GIMP by kinkowski
My first attempt to write a tutorial about something.
My result: [link]

Feel free to comment on this very first try :)

The screenshots in this tutorial are made of the german version of The Gimp. I hope, they'll help anyway.

The downloadable zip-file contains the tutorial as a html file and the screenshots for the html file. Just unzip and use.

Hint:
Inserting all pictures in layers the easy way:
Open The Gimp. Open the folder with the pictures.
Drag + Drop the darkest picture on The Gimp.
As the picture is open, Drag + Drop all other pictures
in the right order (ascending to the brightest one)
on the dark picture. Each is automaticly placed in a
new layer. Thanks, The Gimp!
(This really saved me tons of time as I discovered it
yesterday night :) )

Erst mal, ein sehr schönes Tutorial,...
...denkst du der HDR-Effekt wird auch auf dem folgenden Bild gut aussehen!
Schloss Sans Souci

(wollte mir mal dein Tutorial ansehen und es dann auf dieses bild übertragen)
Ist es eigendlich notwendig ein Bild mit mehreren Belichtungszeiten zu fotografieren, oder kann man mit Gimp die Helligkeit bzw. Dunkelheit künstlich erzeugen?
Schöne Grüße

Erstmal: Dankeschön :)
Auf dem Bild..hmm - also für HDR-Fotos ist es immer interessant ein Motiv zu wählen, das einen sehr großen Kontrastumfang hat - im Motiv sollte es sehr helle und auch sehr dunkle Stellen geben, so das auf einem normalen Foto entweder einige Stellen überleuchtet oder stark unterbelichtet herauskommen - in diesem Fall ist das Foto ja auch so ganz gut zu erkennen (also alle Bereiche)

Möglicherweise wäre ein Bild des gesamten Schlosses interessanter für HDR

Zur zweiten Frage:
Eigentlich sind mehrere Bilder nötig.
Eine weitere Möglichkeit sind die raw-Bilder direkt von der Kamera - aber dann würde ich zu einem HDR-Programm oder zu Photoshop greifen (ansonsten könnte man ein raw-Bild eventuell durch die künstliche Erzeugung von Hell / Dunkel in verschiedene Einzelbilder zerlegen und dann wieder in der von mir beschriebenen Weise wieder zusammenfügen - mit einem normalen Bild wird das nicht so gut funktionieren (zu geringer Kontrastumfang) - aber im Spiel kann man es ja mal versuchen ;) vielleicht kommt ja etwas schönes dabei heraus.. )

Hi.
Would you mind if I add the link to this tutorial in the tutorials section of the club?

This would be okay :)
The tutorial is for everyone - so why not for the club ;) (I did it, because I didn't find a workaround for Gimp-Users...)

Nice tutorial! ;)

Maybe you could add a small version of the finished picture at the bottom, since it's always covered by windows. :)

Cool gallery, too :D

Thanks :)

Adding the smal version of the result to the html-version should be no problem - adding it to the preview will be a little harder ;) but I'll see, what I can do.

And thanks again ;)

Well it was just to give you an idea what to improve...I see those before-after pictures a lot in tutorials (before would be a bit difficult, since you're using more than one picture) and I think they leave a nice impression. ;)
I would have clicked on the link to the large version anyway ^^

Oh, and welcome to dA, I just noticed you're pretty new here :D

I understood it to be this sort of good advice :)
And you're absolutely right: Adding a sort of before after-thingy gives the people a motivation to have a try ;)

Thanks for the warm welcome and hello from germany to germany!

That looks fascinating. Reminds me of the good old days, when Kais Power Goo was popular :)
Maybe I'll try that to. Thanks a lot !
