HDRSoft Photomatix Pro 5.0.2 Final (x86/x64)
If you have ever photographed a high contrast scene, you know that even the best exposure will typically have blown out highlights and flat shadows. Photomatix offers two ways to solve this problem: Exposure Blending: Merge differently exposed photographs into one image with increased dynamic range. Tone Mapping: Reveal highlight and shadow details in an HDR image created from multiple exposures. The tone mapped image is ready for printing while showing the complete dynamic range captured.
Saving on lighting equipment
Given that most digital cameras can auto-bracket at different exposures, you do not need to acquire expensive lighting equipment -and carry it- when shooting high contrast scenes. Just enable Auto Exposure Bracketing, and let Photomatix merge your photos into an image with extended dynamic range.
Saving time in post-processing
Photomatix Pro is designed for productivity -- automatic blending, unlimited stacking, easy comparison of results and batch processing save hours of masking and layers work in image editing programs.
Taking advantage of your 32-bit images
Have you created a 32-bit HDR image in Photoshop CS2 and could not get a good HDR conversion? The Photomatix Tone Mapping tool may help. See how it compares to Photoshop CS2 HDR conversion.
Great pictures on cloudy days
Shadowless hazy sunlight or an overcast sky usually results in dull-looking photographs. The tone mapping tool of Photomatix Pro can turn them into great-looking images. Check this image as example.
The Exposure Blending functions of Photomatix Pro merge any number of bracketed photos -- this process is equivalent to image stacking, which tends to reduce noise in the resulting image.
Well exposed panoramas
A panoramic scene is almost always a high contrast scene -- you can't limit your view to areas with the same brightness when shooting a 360° panorama. By taking views under several exposures and processing them in Photomatix Pro, you can create a panorama that will show details in both the dark and bright areas of the scene.
HDRsoft Photomatix Pro 5.0.2 (x86/x64) + serial-BEAN : 23.05 MBChanges in Photomatix Pro 5.0.2, 11-Feb-2014:
- Added support for RAW files of recent camera models such as the Nikon Df, Pentax K-3, and Sony A7 and A7R.
- On Batch Bracketed Photos, added a “Previous Session (non-batch)” item to the list of the Preset pop-up menu.
- Changed the item selected by default on the File Format combo-box for saving tonemapped/fused images from TIFF to JPEG (selected item is “sticky”, so change only affects first use).
- Bug fixed: When running the Batch Bracketed Photos with the ‘Use Preset” option and the selected Preset is related to a Tone Mapping method, the name of the created tone mapped file included the method’s name.
- Bug fixed: When using the feature to replace a selection with source with the Fusion/Real-Estate method, the fused image was incorrect.
- Bug fixed: On Windows 8, the Progress window did not show after having used the Deghosting Options dialog.
- Bug fixed: Running the Batch Bracketed Photos using the ‘Interior’ Preset or Fusion/Real-Estate method on a OS with limited RAM, with relatively large bracketed photos or a high number of them, could result in an error due to a crash in the process.
- Bug fixed: Using the “Remove ghosts” option caused a crash when merging very large images.
- Bug fixed: With some user selected Windows themes, the font colors of some dialogs made the text almost unreadable.
- Bug fixed: Photomatix Pro could freeze if the program’s window was minimized while running the ghost removal process.
