- программа для профессиональных фотографов и продвинутых любителей. Photomatix Pro комбинирует любое число различных кадров в сцене с высокой контрастностью в одно изображение с деталями и всеми тенями.
Photomatix Pro - автономная система, которая расширяет динамический диапазон фотографов. Продукт позволяет пользователям смешивать кадры и восстанавливать локальные детали из High Dynamic Range изображений, созданных из многократного экспонирования. В дополнении к Tone Mapping, Photomatix Pro предлагает 6 методов смешивания кадров, поддержку 16-и битов и пакетную обработку данных.Photomatix Pro
- Increase the dynamic range of your photographs. If you have ever photographed a high contrast scene, you know that even the best exposure will typically have blown out highlights and flat shadows. Photomatix offers two ways to solve this problem: 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.Saving on lighting equipment
Given that most digital cameras can auto-bracket at different exposures, you do not need to acquire expensive lighting equipment -and carry it- when shooting high contrast scenes. Just enable Auto Exposure Bracketing, and let Photomatix merge your photos into an image with extended dynamic range.Saving time in post-processing
Photomatix Pro is designed for productivity -- automatic blending, unlimited stacking, easy comparison of results and batch processing save hours of masking and layers work in image editing programs.Taking advantage of your 32-bit images
Have you created a 32-bit HDR image in Photoshop CS2 and could not get a good HDR conversion? The Photomatix Tone Mapping tool may help. See how it compares to Photoshop CS2 HDR conversion.Great pictures on cloudy days
Shadowless hazy sunlight or an overcast sky usually results in dull-looking photographs. The tone mapping tool of Photomatix Pro can turn them into great-looking images. Check this image as example.Noise reduction
The Exposure Blending functions of Photomatix Pro merge any number of bracketed photos -- this process is equivalent to image stacking, which tends to reduce noise in the resulting image.Well exposed panoramas
A panoramic scene is almost always a high contrast scene -- you can't limit your view to areas with the same brightness when shooting a 360° panorama. By taking views under several exposures and processing them in Photomatix Pro, you can create a panorama that will show details in both the dark and bright areas of the scene.
Photomatix Pro is a stand-alone program that runs on Mac OS X and Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista. The Tone Mapping tool is also available separately as a plugin compatible with Photoshop CS2.Main new features in version 3.0:Improved workflow and User Interface
- "Workflow Shortcuts" panel and addition of Tone Mapping button on HDR viewer
- Dragging multiple image files to the Photomatix icon can automatically invoke the Generate HDR or Exposure Blending dialog.
- Tone Mapping preview opens in a separate window with improved size controls
- Presets menu allows quick access to user settings
- Loupe does not replace image preview anymore. Checkbox enables to control separate refresh of preview and loupeSecond automatic alignment method
- New alignment method is based on feature matching, and corrects for rotation in addition to translation.
- New alignment method uses a different algorithm and approach from the first method, allowing to choose the best algorithm depending on the image. The new alignment algorithm is slower but often more accurate.Improved Exposure Blending
- New algorithm for method 'H&S - Adjust'. It produces natural looking results while preserving highlights and shadows details well.
- Preview and Loupe available for all Exposure Blending methods.
- Ability to select the images for method 'H&S - 2 images'
- Merge of the two 'H&S - Intensive' sub-methods into one with a Strength setting added (its default value is equivalent to the formerly Light method and its maximum to the formerly Enhanced method).
- RAW files are now supported for Exposure BlendingImproved handling of large HDR image files
- When the size of the opened HDR image file reaches a threshold, a dialog box offers the option to open the image in preview mode. Choosing this option works similarly as formerly "Large File Processing" which has therefore been removed.
- Size of threshold that triggers the dialog is 30 MegaPixels by default and adjustable in Preferences.New options in Batch Processing
- Selection of source files can now be done by files in addition to folder.
- When the source image has a thumbnail embedded, selecting that image with the mouse shows the thumbnail.
- Option to process bracketed images having each exposure located under a separate folderDownload:
