I understand that 32 bit hdr files are linear by nature. But I don't really understand the whole color management side of it.
If I open RAW images (bracketed images taken with a DSLR, to be merged to create the hdr), do I need to take special care with the color management?
As far as I know the RAW images, when opened in PS, are assigned an sRGB color profile. Do the files need to be linearized before they are merged? Or are they already linear, and just previewing in sRGB? Or am I missing something basic in terms of how PS color management works?
Thanks for reading.
