Only Photomatix Pro gives users complete control when grouping HDR photos. Now we are automatically shown a preview of each merged set, one after the other, and choose unique settings (or presets) for each one.

HDRsoft, makers of Photomatix software that pioneered High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo editing, have released version 7 of their flagship software Photomatix Pro. The latest version adds a new way of batch processing and significant improvements to existing features, which will have a compelling impact on further improving users’ workflows, helping them get the desired results with greater consistency, and save time . Key benefits in the new version include:
- More control during batch processing. ‘Journal with Preview’ is a new interactive feature that gives users more control when processing multiple sets of bracket photos. Users can preview each merged HDR image, and have the option to refine the results by adjusting the settings or applying a different preset for each. This helps streamline the workflow for people who take and process many photos of scenes with different lighting conditions, such as real estate, travel, architecture and landscape photographers.
- Save and load selection for ghost removal. The selective deghosting feature adds an option to save the areas marked for deghosting. If there is a need to reprocess the image, or to refine the area marked for deghosting after exiting the degassing window, users can simply load the saved selection, avoiding the need to start all over again .
- Customizable watermark tool. Users can add their own text watermark to images with the new watermark tool. They can choose the font, size, layout and place the watermark on any part of the photo.
- More flexibility in post-processing. Version 7 adds the option to save HDR images in DNG format, including the 32-bit DNG for the merged HDR image before rendering. This file format option is fully compatible with Photoshop, Lightroom and other common photo editing applications, giving users more flexibility and additional options when doing post-processing.
- Additional option to start batch processing. It is now possible to start batch processing by dragging or browsing files. This helps further speed up the workflow of users who like to view, sort and select photos in the Finder or Windows Explorer.
Photomatix Pro creates High Dynamic Range (HDR) images by merging multiple photos of the same scene taken at different exposures, and the merged images can then be adjusted with a range of precise controls and settings or with one-click presets. It is the most advanced among HDRsoft’s products and has an extensive range of tools and options such as automatic alignment of handheld photos, degassing function to remove ghosts or visual artifacts when moving objects are present in the scene, color sliders to refine colors, blending options , and essential post-processing tools.
An important feature that sets Photomatix Pro apart is the multiple HDR rendering styles available. It enables both professional photographers and hobbyists to achieve the unique look and feel they envision, from highly realistic to artistic HDR images. This flexibility opens up HDR techniques not only in landscape photography, but also in other areas such as real estate, architecture, panoramas, travel and astrophotography.
Other fields involving the use of Photomatix include medical imaging, forensics, product photography, time-lapse video and visual effects. Photomatix Pro includes a robust batch processing option, and the addition of the ‘batch with preview’ in version 7 further enhances this feature.
“Only Photomatix Pro gives users complete control when batch processing HDR photos,” said Ron Pepper, HDRsoft’s Business Development Manager. “Now we’re automatically shown a preview of each merged set, one after the other, and choose unique settings (or presets) for each one.” He also added: “Real estate, travel and landscape photographers are regularly faced with the task of processing multiple sets of photos under different lighting conditions. They are among those who will greatly benefit from this new innovation.”
