Yes, resize.

I love the one with the marques.

What are you using PS to merge the images or another program. How many images did you merge on each shot.

I'm having some trouble when I merge that my computer runs out of storage space. My DNG files were huge, so I downgraded to Photoshop files without compression, but I still had trouble merging three images about half the time. I've got 4GB of RAM, but the storage keeps taping out. Since this is HDR I'm reluctant to reduce the file sizes, but maybe I'll need to... any ideas?

To merge for the HDR I used Photomatix Pro 3, you can use it all you want as a trail but for some features they put a watermark on it till you buy the full version. I did 3 images. I recommend shooting in RAW files I think they are called. Try this its Photomatix. Very easy to use, just go to generate HDR image. If that doesn't work send the files to ally d 1990 @ gm ail .com (minus spaces to keep from getting spam0 and I will have a go.

My RAW files are 26MB and larger. DNG (digital negative) is about the same. Can Photomatix handle files that large?

yup. but be aware that if it doesn't seem to work it might be bc photomatix doesn't support your camera. i had to download an update/fix to get photomatix and photoshop to process shots from the 50D
