Photomatix Pro 5.0 from HDRsoft is an application that is designed to produce High Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery from bracketed exposures of high-contrast scenes. After taking a series of exposures of one scene that are each specifically adjusted for highlights, mid-tones, and shadows, but are otherwise identically positioned, Photomatix Pro can combine those individual images into one composite that reveals details throughout the photograph's entire tonal range. The HDR effect can be fine-tuned with regard to strength of contrast and detail, color saturation, dynamic range, contrast in details, lighting adjustments and effects, contrast in highlights, white point, black point, gamma, or color temperature. Additionally, built-in presets allow for a quick selection of output effects and custom presets can be saved for future use. A time-saving batch processing feature provides the ability to automatically generate multiple HDR images, and an included export plug-in provides integration with Photoshop Lightroom version 1.3 for an even more efficient workflow.

Merge Bracketed Photos
Photomatix Pro works with photographs of the same scene taken under different exposure settings. These differently exposed images of the same scene are often called "bracketed" images in reference to the auto-bracketing exposure functions available on many camera models. Photomatix Pro can combine these bracketed images to create one High Dynamic Range (HDR) image with correctly-exposed highlights, mid-tones, and shadows.
HDR Tone Mapping with Details Enhancer
The HDR effect can be fine-tuned with regard to the strength of contrast and detail, color saturation, dynamic range, contrast in details, lighting adjustments and effects, contrast in highlights, white point, black point, gamma, and color temperature.
Advanced Details Enhancer Settings
The appearance of small details, saturation in highlights, saturation in shadows, contrast in shadows, and shadow clipping can be adjusted while the removal of seams in a 360° stitched panoramic image can also be performed.
HDR Tone Mapping with Contrast Optimizer
This tool also allows the user to fine-tune contrast and detail strength, shadow clipping, color saturation, and color temperature, as well as the dynamic range. Through this tool, seams in a 360° panoramic image can also be removed. Additionally, the prominence of shadows, highlight clipping, and mid-tone brightness can be adjusted as well.
Exposure Fusion with Fusion/Natural
Exposure Fusion creates an HDR image with an appearance that is similar to the source images, providing a "natural" look while reducing noise. Contrast strength, brightness, contrast in details, highlight clipping, shadow clipping, mid-tone brightness, and color saturation can be adjusted using this tool. The removal of seams in a 360° panoramic image is also supported.
Exposure Fusion with Fusion/Real-Estate
Many of the features provided by Exposure Fusion with Fusion/Natural are incorporated here, such as control of highlights, shadows, contrast in details, and color saturation, as well as the removal of seams in a 360° stitched panoramic image. Additionally, the colors within highlights can be darkened and enhanced, resulting in a collection of tools particularly beneficial to real-estate photographers who frequently must create images with a variety of dynamic ranges distributed among various parts of one scene; such as the interior of a room along with the view through a window.
Finishing Touch
Once you have processed an image and before saving it, you may use the options in the Finishing Touch palette in order to increase the contrast of an image, sharpen it, or adjust the saturation of individual colors.
Undo Tone Mapping/Fusion
After processing an HDR image, the Tone Mapping or Exposure Fusion tools can be used to continue working with the same image set. One can start over and apply entirely new presets and settings, or additional effects can be added, using an already-processed image as the starting point.
Fusion from a Single RAW File
Typically, an HDR image is derived from multiple exposures of the same scene. However, a single RAW file can be split into darker and lighter images, which can then be fused.
Automatic Alignment of Hand-Held Photos
If a set of images intended for HDR output is taken without a tripod, Photomatix can compensate for several types of camera movement, including horizontal and vertical motion, rotation, as well as forward and backward movement. When the 'include perspective' option is selected, it corrects for every kind of minor camera movement.
Automatic Ghost Removal
Deghosting addresses the problem of artifacts that appear when combining the bracketed images of a dynamic scene. For example, if the moving subjects are people walking, the people will appear multiple times in the combined image, once for each frame, faded, and in a different position as if they were "ghosts". This is why artifacts that arise from movement in a scene are commonly referred to as "ghosting" and the techniques to eliminate them are referred to as "deghosting". An automatic deghosting algorithm provides image-wide correction of this effect.
Adjustment Options for Automatic Deghosting
The strength of the deghosting effect can be adjusted when automatic deghosting is applied. When automatic deghosting is used, one of the source photos is used to create the HDR image in areas detected as ghosted. By default this is the median exposure, but other exposures can be selected instead.
Selective Deghosting Tool
Specific areas of the image that require processing to remove ghosting caused by movement of elements in the scene can be selected with a lasso tool. Photomatix Pro uses the single image that it deems best exposed for the selected area's brightness, as the default deghosting target image. The automatically selected deghosting target image can be changed using this tool.
Thumbnails of Built-In Presets
A presets panel lists the available output presets, showing a thumbnail preview of the effect of the preset on an image. When a preset thumbnail is clicked, the preview image is refreshed to show the result of applying the settings of the selected preset.
Thumbnails of Custom Presets
Custom presets can be saved in the course of adjusting images, or presets created by other Photomatix users can be imported. Like Photomatix Pro's built-in presets, custom presets appear as thumbnails that offer a preview of the preset effect.
Display Options for Preset Thumbnails
By default, Photomatix Pro displays one column of small preset thumbnails. Clicking on a "plus" icon on the top of the presets panel displays the thumbnails at a larger size. Thumbnails can also be displayed in two columns.
Saving and Loading of User Presets
can be saved while adjusting an image or after Tone Mapping or Exposure Fusion is completed. After it is saved, a preset can be loaded over the course of the editing process.
Batch Processing of Bracketed Photos
A batch processing tool saves time by automating HDR image processing. Two batch modes are offered. In one step, a bracketed set of exposures can be processed using HDR Tone Mapping, as well as by using the Exposure Fusion option or multiple single images can be processed using Tone Mapping.
Automatic Reduction of Chromatic Aberrations
A Reduce Chromatic Aberrations option automatically corrects color fringing due to chromatic aberrations of the camera lens. Chromatic aberrations tend to appear around high contrast edges, and are a particular issue for HDR images.
Automatic Noise Reduction
By default, Photomatix Pro applies noise reduction when processing RAW images. This feature is particularly useful in dark areas of an image, where digital noise due to areas on a camera sensor receiving a weak input signal can appear. By automatically reducing incidences of noise, the potential for increasing noise when enhancing image details or contrast is reduced.
Maximum Number of Photos per Bracketed Set
With Photomatix Pro, the number of images that can be merged is unlimited in order to maximize the user's ability to customize the HDR effect.
Read/Write in 32-Bit HDR Image Formats
32-Bit HDR allows Photomatix Pro to preserve and output detail in areas where it is most needed, particularly in bright areas of the image, while maintaining color accuracy and shadow detail throughout without unnecessarily adding to the size of the image file.
Integration with Lightroom via Free Export Plug-In
Photomatix Pro is compatible with Photoshop Lightroom version 1.3 and greater.
