    Lightroom HDR wont merge


      Hello lighroom and photoshop users.


      This is my first post so a short intro.

      My name is Daniël and live in the Netherlands. I am a enthousiastic amature photographer and use lightroom as a primary editing tool.

      But i have a problem with lightoom at the moment when merging HDR, as follows,


      When i merge my first batch of images it creates a HDR image. But when i want to make another HDR image its gets stuck

      the preview windows appears and doesnt do anyting, even when i select the images and press "shift -> rightclick -> merge HDR" you will see a progress windows but doenst do anything. And when i select the images and press "ctrl+shift+H" same thing.


      But when i restart lightroom i can merge 1 HDR again... so for me the option for now is, close lightroom, startup... etc..


      I use lightroom 64Bit on windows 10 8gb of ram i7proc.


      I hope someone can help me out.


      (sorry for my englisch)


      Kind regards

          What version of LR are you using, exactly?  Use LR / Help / System Info, top line or two, to find out.


          Is this the first time you’ve tried doing HDR merging with LR, or has it worked in the past but just quit with the last LR xxx.6 update?

            Thank you for responding


            I am using the latest version of LR

            No it is not the first time merging with LR. I had problems in the past, when it would load the first time. When i tried it again it started merging. But now i have to close LR and start again

              You might try the LR xx.6.1 just released since several bugs were worked on.
