You don't "turn a photo into HDR".

HDR means High Dynamic Range, while your camera and printer deal with Low Dynamic Range.

To get an HDR image you usually need to take several photos at different exposures, combine them with Merge To HDR. To show that on the web or print it, you'll have to apply tone mapping to create a rendering of it as a low dynamic range image.
