Gurus, Gods, and Geeks,

I know this is more of a Photoshop technique, however, is it possible to yield HDR *high dynamic rage* photo editing results using FW?

Never attached a picture before, so here goes. before and after.

I just tried playing a bit with your photo in FW, but I gave up because I don't have much time - I believe though that you could achieve the same result with the right combination of levels, brightness/contrast and saturation, but you might have to edit different portions of the photo differently - sky, house and street. Selecting part takes a lot of time, that's why I gave it up... Here is what I did in one minute (just with more contrast and the change of levels for a portion of the sky):
[edit - I do think though that for photo editing you should stick to PS]

Hi Zach,

Your question reminds me of a talk I had years ago with a photographer and avid Fireworks user who said he does HDR photography with Fireworks. Unfortunately I don't recall any details, but I'll ask him again when I have the chance and let you know how he does it. :) One thing is for sure: there is no "Merge to HDR" automatic feature or any 3rd-party addon that I know of, so it's most likely a manual process.

I should also mention that currently there is one caveat about manipulating photos with Fireworks: EXIF data might be lost even on the slightest modifications or save attempts, as reported here.

this is what i did,

duplicated the image, applied inverse color dodge on the layer, cropped the roof part up to the sky, then pasted it again. made some changes using the Levels filter , Brightness/Contrast, Hue / Saturation. I think we can yield HRD through this process.

btw the cropped roof looks a bit rough, hehe made it quickly

You guys are great. This is why I come here now.

It seems that when each element of the photo is edited individually, nice results are possible!

Thanks for the replies.
