Make sure that the 48-bit file that Silverfast Ai creates is in TIF format.
Also, tell Silverfast HDR to save its output to a file rather than export it
directly to Photoshop. That might eliminate any problems between HDR and
Photoshop. Other than that, all I can recommend is to contact Lasersoft and
hope you get better service from them than most people do. You might also try
the Silverfast forum at www.silverfast.com and see if another user with more
knowledge than me can help troubleshoot your problem.
