Is it possible to use the Photoshop CS2 "merge to HDR" function in batch mode?
I shot a lot of panoramic images in bracketing mode (three different exposures each) and now want to batch generate HDR images.
I've been doing batch processing of high dynamic range bracketed series for about 2 years now. Also now have a process which is ideal for stitched images. Of course if you are looking for the halos, graying artifacts, and other common "artistically" processed HDR effects, I cannot help you. However if you are simply looking for natural looking dynamic range, then I can.
Script works in CS2/CS3 on Mac/Windows and batch builds undeveloped high dynamic range blended digital negatives from DNG files,
It's part of my FFDD darkroom toolset for Photoshop,http://www.farrarfocus.com/ffdd
Here is a quick example of dynamic range,
