Photography Enthusiast Shows You How To Use Microsoft Excel To Create HDR Photos
By Izza Sofia, 12 Jan 2018
Software engineer and photography enthusiast Kevin Chen explains how to create an HDR image in Microsoft Excel.
In the twelve-minute video below, Chen speaks at ‘!!Con 2017’, (pronounced “Bang Bang Con”), about the experiment in which he uses Microsoft Excel to create a HDR photo.
Introducing the project, he jokes, “Have you ever taken a photo with areas that are too bright or too dark? As any photographer will tell you, high dynamic range photography is the right way to solve your problem. And, as any businessperson will tell you, Microsoft Excel is the right platform to implement your solution.”
Chen breaks down his images into grayscale pixels, with a pixel filling each individual cell in the excel spreadsheet. He inserts the data into Microsoft Excel and makes the cells square, before zooming out to reveal the final product.
Watch the video below to learn how he did it.
