HDRSoft has released the long-awaited version 5 of their HDR software Photomatix Pro (still in beta as of this writing). And there is a number of new features for enthusiasts and professionals that can make your HDR post-processing a lot easier and more effective.
I will review the new features and give you some information on how to use them in your HDR work.
Here is the list of the most notable new features:
- There is a new tone mapping algorithm and a new exposure fusion algorithm.
- The Batch processing was updated to make it easier to use and more powerful.
- Automatic deghosting has been improved to give you more control.
- When you process a single RAW image, you can now also apply exposure fusion algorithms and Photomatix automatically tries to recover the highlight details.
In the video above, I am taking a look at each one of them in a bit more detail.
