Note: HDR DNGs in Lightroom are 16-bit images, not 32-bit.

For those unfamiliar, HDR, which stands for “High Dynamic Range”, is the process of combining multiple photos of the same scene, shot at different exposures, to achieve a single image that mimics what the human eye can see. This is typically not possible with a single image.

To merge the photos, select the multiple images, right-click on either of them, hover over “Photo Merge”, and choose HDR.
