Photomatix Pro 5 – Review of the new features

Photomatix Pro 5 Feature Review - featured imageIn this video, I will take a look at the features of the brand new Photomatix Pro 5.

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:

  1. There is a new tone mapping algorithm and a new exposure fusion algorithm.
  2. The Batch processing was updated to make it easier to use and more powerful.
  3. Automatic deghosting has been improved to give you more control.
  4. 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.

Hallo Klaus,

leider funktioniert bei mir der Ton Deines Videos nicht. Schade.

Weißt Du vielleicht, wann Photomatix 5 als offizielle Version erhältlich sein wird?

Freundliche Grüße: Harry

A fair assesement Klaus. I think Photomatix has been sitting on their hands a little too long and as a result other HDR programs have taken a piece of their pie. Personally I am using Nik Efex HDR and am getting the results I want. I have not followed Photomatix news for a few years now but I have not heard of them making a plug-in for this for Photoshop or say Lightroom 5. Stand alone programs just might be “stand alone” in the future if they don’t team up with other editing software companies.

Your video’s and presentations are second to none! Great work! Nice and clean, professional, informative and short enough for my attention span. – Pat.
