I'm trying to apply NIK Dfine to a merged HDR image done with LR. The Dfine interface opens, but the image does not display. This also happens with NIK Sharpener. I'm able to use the NIK plugins on a standard image, it's just the HDR that's giving me a problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
The merged image is in 16 bit floating point Dng which can support a roughly 30 stop DR, but has to be remapped (edited) in LR and then output as a normal 16 bit tiff, either by exporting it or choosing the Edit in .../Make a copy with LR adjustments option, so that other applications can read it.
Great! Thanks for responding. I will try this tonight when I get home. Much appreciated.
Tried selecting Edit in/make copy with lightroom adjustments, but it still just displays as a transparent background with no image visible. I will try the export option.
update - did the export to 16 bit .tif and that did the job. Thanks!
