Most things these days don't come with a printed handbook and you are left to either print out a costly PDF or try to work out how to use it on screen. Hopeless if its software and you have to keep switching between screens.

I have used this program for a while now and finally decided to buy the latest version - and the small but well writen handbook was a very useful bonus as my previous copy was downloaded with on-line guidance. Having now read the booklet from cover to cover I know significantly more about it than from muddling through on-line.

If you are in to HDR images and their processing - then this program handles the job well - from vey realistic to surreal with an almost infinite number of settings in between including a very good de-ghosting tool that is very effective at removing those inevitable movements.

Overall an excellent program.

This is a brilliant piece of kit. So easy to install alongside Photoshop and Lightroom and so easy to use. I have read so much on the internet about different hdr products and this one seemed to be the best. I can't imagine being without it now. Just load your three exposure shots and let the software do its thing, the results are stunning and, if you dont like what you see, it's so easy to tweak the colours and saturation etc. Plus, there are lots and lots of presets you can play around with.

If you want to try hdr, get this, you won't regret it.
I'd recommend this to anyone.

This piece of software, for those wanting to produce high quality HDR photos, will be the best 70 odd pounds you will spend. The box in which the software comes is too large, containing the thin manual and a CD, but that's all you need. Assuming you can use a functional SLR camera, and can hold it still, it's as simple as reading the first chapter of the manual, setting up the camera as recommended, taking the photos, and then letting the software get to work. I recently took some landscape shots in difficult conditions, but got some amazing results, and that was spending one evening with my photos, the software and my MacBook. There is a reason this product has only 4 & 5 star ratings....

The best HDR software on the market. I read numerous reviews, and forums, before making a decision for my purchase. It's very easy to use, with some great effects. Leave that one with you!

I have recently become impressed by the creative photographs that I have seen around the Internet and owning a Canon camera that has the ability to take bracketed photographs, I wanted to find out how to do it. (Bracketed photos are a number of photos taken of the same scene but using different exposures - for instance, a 3-shot bracketed shot would underexpose the first, correctly expose the second and over-expose the third). A search brought me to Photomatix, a software capable of creating such wonderful magical effects that I had observed on the Internet and I am more than pleased with the results.

The software will line up and layer together 3 or more bracketed shots that I load into it and then I can use adjustment to create my own high dynamic range (HDR) photograph with it...

The first one I tried for instance, was a bracketed shot of the sunset over the back of my garden. The camera was on a tripod to ensure that it didn't move between shots. I then loaded all three shots into the software - which was very easy through a small pop-up window where I selected all three that were loaded layered one on top of the other. I could then use all the various adjustments to bring out everything that I noticed with my eyes and have them show up in the picture. I wanted the Pampas Grass to show that golden reflection that the sun cast on it. Without the software, the only way to do it would be to overexpose the sun and sky to bring into view the darker objects in the shot.. Well one of the bracketed shots had done this overexposure, whilst the other two had focused more on getting the colours of the sun and sky correct whilst throwing the foreground into shadow at various degrees.

I chose a 5 star rating for this HDR software because first of all it gives some great HDR finishes and is so easy and straight forward to use, I would recommend this to anyone who is want to learn more about HDR or wanting their photos to have a special look. also there is a updated version for this software, once installed just go to updates and download it,

I am a relative new comer to HDR photography but am already producing incredible results from this software. It's very easy to learn and use and does exactly what it sets out to do. Of course you need to be able to compose a good photograph, or rather series of photographs using auto exposure bracketing (which rules out most cameras except decent quality DSLR's), to get good results from the software. I can't compare this with other HDR software as I have not used any others, but, I am happy with the results I am getting from Photomatix Pro.

Don't forget to check for on-line updates, as the software is already up to v4.3. Fortunately the update process was very simple and straight forward (on a MAC anyway).
