    Stacking HDR Photos Based on Exposure

    ericm95535165

      Is it possible to automate the "Group into Stack" for photos based on exposure in Lightroom? I'm a huge fan of HDR photos and have a library full of photos that have multiple exposure images used to create HDR images. It would be spectacular if Lightroom could automatically detect sequential photos with an exposure range (E.g. EV -6 to EV +6) and create a stack of them with the EV 0 photo used as the key image. I'm aware of the option for automatic stacking based on time, but this isn't a workable option for HDR photos as some HDR exposures can be several minutes. I'm interested to know how others are managing their HDR photo libraries. I'm using smart folders that exclude any photos that are not EV 0, but I think stacking would be a better option.

       

      Thanks!
