Photomatix HDR Software


HDR Software

We have been a big fan of Photomatix ever since we stumbled across the Stuck in Customs blog, and followed the links on his HDR tutorial to HDR Software, the providers of Photomatix.

How it Works

HDR stands for High Definition Range, and consists of taking a series of photography and then combining them into one.

HDR Software offers two methods to generate photographs that essentially combine a range of exposures and colours in a way that can not be done in normal photography.

Exposure Blending: Merge differently exposed photographs into one image with increased dynamic range.

Tone Mapping: Reveal highlight and shadow details in an HDR image created from multiple exposures. The tone mapped image is ready for printing while showing the complete dynamic range captured.

It is also possible to generate an HDR from a single image.

Using the software is simple - unlike Photoshop you can master the technique in minutes!
