Photomatix Pro merges photographs taken at varying exposure levels into a single HDR image that reveals both highlight and shadow details, with options for automatically aligning hand-held photographs, removing ghosts, and reducing noise and chromatic aberrations. Merged images can then be adjusted by a range of options and settings to get the look that users want — from natural-looking results using exposure fusion to painterly, surreal or ultra-realistic images using the tone mapping mode.
A free trial is available. The trial is fully functional and never expires, but adds a watermark to images produced with the most popular methods.
- Bug fixed: When Nikon D610 RAW files were loaded, resulting image had red lines on the border. Bug had been introduced in v5.0.2.
- Bug fixed: When dragging image files to the Photomatix Pro icon while Photomatix Pro had not yet been opened, the "Merge to HDR Options" dialog showed behind the background window.
- Bug fixed: Moving sliders of the Finishing Touch dialog did not refresh the image until slider was released, even though the "refresh continuously as slider moves" option was set in Preferences.
- Bug fixed: Sony RAW files with the SRW file extension could not be loaded from the Open Panel to load a single photo.
