Easy Fake HDR Effect in Adobe Photoshop

Usually to make a HDR image we need to shoot at least 3 image using exposure bracketing. Unfortunately, I believe you not always to set your camera for exposure bracketing. So I hope this easy fake HDR effect tutorial will help you to turn your image to HDR image. All you need here is only your image and Adobe Photoshop, by the way, in this tutorial I use Adobe Photoshop CS5 for HDR Toning methode, I don't know whether the previous has the HDR Toning feature. So let's get started.

Layer blending method (this method can be applied to any version of Adobe Photoshop).
  1. Open your image and then duplicate the background layer by pressing Ctrl+J.
  2. Choose the copied layer, then desaturate the layer by click Image > Adjustments > Desaturate or you can press Shift+Ctrl+U.
  3. Then blur the layer using Gaussian Blur by choosing Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Then set the radius between 30-40 pixels.
  4. The invert the layer by selecting Image > Adjustments > Invert or you can just press Ctrl+I.
  5. After that just change the layer blending mode to Overlay or Soft Light and adjust the opacity according your preference.
HDR Toning Method
This method is very easy, just open your image in Adobe Photoshop then select Image > Adjustments > HDR Toning. After a dialog box appear just try to adjust of the HDR image according to your preference.

I believe there are another way to fake the HDR images, but I hope these 2 methods will be the easier method for you to try..
