Hi, can anyone please explain what does "High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging" mean? And what are some High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging techniques?

Also, I need to resize several images, convert the files to jpegs and somehow adjust the image resolution - would prefer not to spend money on Adobe Photoshop as this is a one-off situation, but does anyone know any free software I can download or online programs that I could use for this (and the 'High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging techniques') ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need to finish editing these images within this week, thanks!

HDR typically involves merging together multiple images at different exposure points to create images with a greater dynamic range. Its applications can range from making everything in an image look like it's at the "correct" where taking a single photo in a high contrast scenario would otherwise leave areas over/under exposed;

Can't speak for techniques personally, I've never used it before aside from the rare time where I'll use the HDR function built into my DSLR.

Thanks for your reply and the example photos - so HDR imaging needs multiple photos? Does that mean it wouldn't be possible to use HDR imaging if I haven't taken several photos of the same scene already? Thanks,

I recommend you using a tripod and the caner's internal HDR mode as you will need stability, and the camera's software to correct the moved shots of each succession. Mirror locking would be important and timer as well.
