Hello everyone ! :D
I've been trying for years to achieve this look to my simulator fsx using reshade
And this is it :
prnt.sc/e42con
In this picture HDR was taken on p3d which is another simulator but it has integrated HDR
i thought with FSX and reshade HDR i could achieve that look !
This is how my simulator looks like :

Maybe some strong gamma correction?

But before I mislead you, no, you can't just "add HDR" to a picture.

I Didn't quite get your point here sir :)
Reshade has an HDR option !
The HDR settings that i want to get are :
Brightness:0.8
Bloom:0.9
Saturation:0.8
Couldn't find any of those on my reshade menu !

Ok, we have some misconceptions we need to clear before going any further.

- ReShade's HDR is NOT the same as a game engine's HDR;
- ReShade's HDR is NOT actual HDR, it just tries to look like it. Quoting from the author:
/**
 * HDR
 * by Christian Cann Schuldt Jensen ~ CeeJay.dk
 *
 * Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost)
 */

- You CANNOT get true HDR just from a single LDR image. The reason for this being that you are missing a lot of color information.

And therefore, what I said:

Maybe some strong gamma correction?
But before I mislead you, no, you can't just "add HDR" to a picture.


You CANNOT make your image HDR, but I was pointing you towards an idea of what might make it look like the original one you mentioned.

I don't work with ReShade 3.0, but I think LiftGammaGain should do the trick. Lower the gamma equally for all colors, then try going from there.
