    Cool Lightroom-Enfuse plugin

    Has anyone bought and is using the Enfuse exposure blending plugin for Lightroom? Like it? Hate it? What's the verdict?

    LR/Enfuse - Blend Multiple Exposures Together in Adobe Lightroom

    A curious mind wants to know.

    Thanks!

    Couldn't be happier. Great for real estate shots, and the integration into lightroom has improved greatly with the newer versions.

    Thanks Lance. Architecture is one use I had in mind. I'm curious about the amount of the donation-do you recall how much you "donated"?

    I just sent over $10. But I don't recall there is a specified amount so if you think it's worth less or more you could adjust appropriately. :)

    It looks like there is even an Enfuse Flickr Pool with people that use the plugin. The first example mentions a good feature, alignment, if you shoot the brackets without a tripod.

    Also as a side note, I have been using it for about 6 months on OSX with 2GB RAM without problems. A buddy recently started using it on Vista with 2GB RAM and his computer chokes and lightroom/enfuse errors out. I can only assume it's a Vista/Lightroom relationship issue, because it ran flawless with 2GB on my box. I have since upgraded to 6GB to speed up transition times between sending photos to/from lightroom/photoshop, but just a heads up. He can run 1600x1200 images through it fine, but I ran 11 exposures this morning just to test something out, full-res, and there wasn't an issue at all.

    I'm running an antique with 4 GB and XP Service Pack 3. It should be ok.
    I'm curious. Can Enfuse be used to do the same thing by way of Hugin? I have the complete hugin installation and Enfuse is part of Hugin. Lightroom would be a huge improvement in interface.

    That I'm unsure of, hopefully someone else can chime in. I'm not familiar with Hugin at all..just looked it up. If I had to guess, I would say it will do everything in lightroom that it does in hugin because enfuse is just a backend program. Hugin and Lightroom just have a front-end for it, so I would imagine the functionality would be similar, if not identical?

    Oooh, I've been waiting for Adobe to make a way to blend multiple shots in LR. Gonna have to check this plugin out.

    I've used Enfuse for quick expsoure blending. It works very well in LR. I compared it with the fusion output from a trial copy of Photomatix. The default results were very similar. Certainly Photomatix gives you many more parameters to control, but if you are not interested in tone mapping, then Enfuse is quite satisfactory. I did not feel the urge to purchase Photomatix.

    I always use alignment, even when shooting from a tripod.

    I'm liking it - easier to use than Photomatix (which I'll still use for hard HDR), since you don't have to leave LR. Tried the free version and gonna donate for the full.

    Wayne, thanks for starting this thread, hadn't heard of this one.
    I've been using photomatix.

    I'm going to give this one a shot with the images from today's shoot.

    Interesting thing is Gordon is/was a TPF and he is listed as a resource article. I really enjoyed Gordon's insight.

    I tried the trial version yesterday on Saturday's indoor pub exposures. Even at 500 pixles max length the results looked very natural. I have the unlock code. I'll put LREnfuse to real use tonight.
    Look out. I'm dangerous now.

    Nice examples. I think Enfuse will be one of my most used extras for LR aside from some of the presets I've put together.

    Well, i tried enfuse and i don't get it.
    Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I don't have time to fiddle with the little bit of settings it has, without a live preview. And when i do let it process, the resulting pic looks just like one of my middle exposures. So why bother?

    So then I downloaded the new Nik HDR trial software and WOW, now that's how you getter done. Tons of presets from natural to crazy, and great adjustments sliders to customize, all with live preview so you can see what's happening on the fly. I've always used Photomatix but the Nik software is way cooler and easier. It's a free 15 day fully functional version with no watermarking or anything, so give it a try.
