Default Lightroom 5 HDR

Is there any way to create multi-shot HDR with Light room 5 besides having to us LR/Enfuse? Thanks.

"With"... Yes... Many...
Exclusively? Is that your question?

You can't create a HDR image inside Lightroom but there are several programs that will do it in conjunction with Lightroom. Of course by using the exposure controls of LR you can make a normally exposed image look like a bad crunchy HDR image with black clouds, etc.

What you can do is export a series of exposure bracketed images to Photoshop by using the right click Edit In>Merge to HDR Pro in Photoshop command. The images can be aligned, merged, then saved as a 32-bit TIFF. You now do your tone mapping in Lightroom on the 32-bit TIFF image file. Done properly you wind up with a very natural looking image.

Alternatively you can use other programs like Photomatix Pro or Enfuse to do the image combining and tone mapping.

If you want to get the floating point 32bit TIFF file directly in Lr and you don't have Ps, you can get the "merge to 32 bit HDR" plug-in from Photomatix. The plug-in is only $29 dollars and is all I use now.

It appears there are three methods for LR. I) purest seven or more bracket images combined using layers either in ps or one one layers or the truly hard way of doing selected selections from each of the images on the whole for the correct lighting. I've seen so many HDR images lately while very effective for art type images..
II) Photo max seams to be the go to for the big boys may be it has better control or is simpler or faster for the pros. III) and ensues IIRC A free plugin for LR

Which is the best for time, easy of use while shooting, ease of use while using, give the best image whiteout over doing it and or the simple ability to go back and scale up/down the effect after initial image is presented, and which is the best for the fantasy type images with all the over kill, save presets from others or the ability to add your own.
