Auto Process HDR Brackets

If you regularly shoot multiple exposures for merging into a single high-dynamicrange (HDR) file, try this when viewing a folder full of bracketed exposures: In Bridge, choose Tools>Photoshop>Process Collections in Photoshop. This will cause Bridge to analyze the metadata for all the images and if it finds that the images were shot as a rapid sequence with only the exposure changed between shots, it will send each set of images through the Merge to HDR feature and save the resulting 32-bit HDR image in Radiance format. That way you can have Bridge merge your images while you sleep and you can tone-map the images using Photoshop or Photomatix at a later date.
