    "Excellent program for HDR"

    May 9, 2012  |   By DamnGoodReviews

    Version: Photomatix Pro 4.2

    Pros

    Ease of use, price, feature set, stand-alone product that does not require Photoshop. Excellent final results

    Cons

    Not enough presets and should have a forum where users can upload presets into a preset library on HDRsoft website

    Summary

    For around $99 Photomatix Pro is a great stand-alone tool for both Windows and Mac platforms and will easily help you to produce great looking and stunning HDR photos. If this is something that interests you I highly recommend downloading the demo version of Photomatix and experimenting with your photos and see for yourself how easy yet powerful this program is. For me, having to spend less than $100 to achieve a high-priced final look is certainly worth the investment and HDRSoft will also provide free updates for up to two years after your purchase on the software.

    "Excellent software"

    February 19, 2012  |   By gibletz

    Version: Photomatix Pro 4.1.4

    Pros

    Great results, far superior to phtoshop for HDR work. Now Deals with noise, chromatic aberration and localised ghosting very effectively. Lots of options which allow you to achieve just result you're looking for.

    Cons

    None really.

    Summary

    I've been using Photomatix for 4 years and although I've tried other HDR software this is still the best. It's evolved over the years and got even better. HDRSofts upgrade policy for Photomatix Pro users is excellent-I've just upgraded to the latest Pro version for free after buying th software in 2008.

    "Great HDR stand alone or Plug-in Program"

    May 14, 2011  |   By jfalsken

    Version: Photomatix Pro 4.0.2

    Pros

    This is the lastest version of the product. I find it a useful tool when doing HDR photography. If you love HDR you will want several tools to run and this is one to have.

    Cons

    It isn't all things to every photographer, but it does come close.

    Summary

    I bought this and download it to upgrade and keep my version up to date. I love HDR and this is one of the tools I own. So much better than Adobe CS 5 has.

    "Good for combining bracketed exposures"

    January 14, 2008  |   By grapewonga

    Version: Photomatix Pro 1.0

    Pros

    Align the bracketed shots with care and this little freebee will give a good midrange picture with the detail from both shots. Further enhancement can then be made in other programs. Recommended.
