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.

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. Hi, I have a query. Lightroom has HDR inbuilt now in lightroom 6.3??? Is LREnfuse is of any use. I encountered a client recently, who is adamant and only wants bracketed images to be edited with lrenfuse only. What to say, such clients?? I am a 5+ year experienced freelancer for video editing, color grading, image editing.

  2. This tutorial really helped my photos look fantastic! Thank you so much for the easy to follow step by step guide on how to use this sometimes difficult program to use.

  3. I advise everyone to test the trial first. I couldn't get mine to work it kept showing this error

    ./LREnfuse.lua:694: attempt to index local 'handle' (a nil value)

    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
