How to Correct Over Exposed Images in Lightroom

Learn how to create multiple versions of the same image and combine them together to form an HDR Photo in Lightroom!

16-bit RAW Images in Lightroom

In order to achieve this effect, be sure to use 16-bit RAW images in Lightroom. 8-bit JPEGs don't have enough information stored in the file to accurately change exposure and make up for missing information.

Create Virtual Copies and Merge to HDR

Start by creating a virtual copy of your image, then adjust the exposure slider down until the over-exposed areas become properly exposed. At this point the rest of the image may be too dark, but don't worry about the dark areas - this image is only used for the highlight information.

Next shift-click on both the original image and the virtual copy the right-click and go to Photo Merge - HDR... Lightroom will treat both of these images as separate photos and merge the exposures together to retina information from the highlights, mid-tones and shadows. This way you can create an HDR Photo from one source image and pull information from over-exposed areas!
