This is a really great four minute tutorial on how to create a “fake” HDR effect in Photoshop using just a single exposure. Some think the HDR look has been overdone or maybe you just don’t like the look at all. I think it can be effective for adding mood to certain images. Also, it never hurts to follow along with these quick tutorials to learn a few new things about Photoshop.
