Canon HR - Highlight Recovery

You will be amazed at what this action can do to your once lost images! HR is optimized to restore lost highlight detail from your RAW files with blowout highlights up to 1.5 f/stops, without affecting image quality.

It's currently compatible with the following Canon digital cameras: Canon 1Ds, 1D, D30, D60, 10D, G2 and G3.

This Photoshop action is optimized for use with RAW files. However, many have reported sucess when using this action on scanned images and Nikon D1 and D1x files .NEF files.

Keep in mind that the HR action only requires 1 (one) exposure in RAW mode, so a tripod is not necessary. You will be converting your RAW file twice. Once normally and the second in linear mode. (Using the provided Canon RAW converter or any other third party software that supports RAW linear mode output).

HR is compatible with Photoshop 5, 5.5, 6, 7 or higher (PC and MAC). Not compatible with PhotoshopLE and Elements.
