    Question is it called blending?

    i have taken a number of photos using a tripod.
    there is some action and i would like to see all the action in one single image.
    kinda like how you take a skiier (or whatever) doing a trick and u can see each frame taken (each with a different position of the skiier) in one photo.

    what is that called and how can i do it (of course, once i know the name i can look it up but maybe someone can point me to a tutorial)?
    oh, is it possible to do in LR, or do i need PS?

    thanks!

    I don't know if there is a proper name for it, but it is probably a job suited for Photoshop. What you need to do is open the first photo in PS, then open each of the remaning photos as separate layers above the first photo. Then you can apply layer masks to all the layers exept the first one, disabling all the layers. The you paint in the parts you want visible from the different layers.

    I think the term you are looking for is HDR. (High Dynamic Range). You need an external editor called from the Edit-In function. That external editor can be PS or PSE. Also, Photomatix is a popular choice with LR. PaintShopPro is also an option. The function is called after selecting all​ of the involved images.

    I assume all individual photos are properly exposed? And you want to combine them into one photo, with parts from all photos showing as one, so you can see the action? If so, layers in Photoshop is the way to go. We are not talking about HDR or exposure blending here.
