How to Create The Most Natural HDR in Lightroom with LR/Enfuse

Using Batch Mode

Do you love shooting HDR? Then you’ll love the batch mode in LR/Enfuse. You can easily process all your HDR bracketed shots into realistic HDR photos.

Step 1

Stack your bracketed images. Select the images, right-click, then go to Stacking, Group into Stack.

Group into Stack

Step 2

If all your photos are stacked, you can try this trick to group all of your stacks. Go to Photo > Stacking > Auto-Stack by Capture Time. Adjust the time setting so that you get the right amount of images. I usually adjust it until it says “0 unstacked” (assuming all my photos are HDR bracketed shots).

Step 3

Select all your photos (Ctrl/Cmd+A) then go to File > Plug-in Extras > Blend exposures using LR/Enfuse. In the Output tab, enable Batch Mode. I would also recommend enabling Auto Align in the Auto Align tab if you’re unsure whether all your images are aligned.

Step 4

Click Enfuse Images and LR/Enfuse will now process all your images and place them inside your stacks. They’ll appear in the top of your stacks automatically.

    1. I am having the same problem. Do you know how to fix this?
      I can make it go away by restarting Lightroom but I rather not do that because it happened many times
