How to Correct Overexposure in Lightroom


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!
