Take Your HDR Photography to the Next Level with the Photomatix Pro Plus Bundle

HDR — High Dynamic Range — photography is the tool used by professional photographers to achieve results that show detail and intense color in all areas of a photograph from the darkest shadows to the brightest skies. The Photomatix Pro Plus Bundle (on sale for $41.99) consists of Photomatix Pro (with six HDR styles), Photomatix Essentials (with four more styles and 30+ presents), and the Photomatix Tone Mapping Plugin for Photoshop, and it can revolutionize your digital photography.

Lightroom’s HDR Merge offers just one HDR style, which may not always give the effect you’re aiming for. With Photomatix Pro, you can choose between 6 HDR styles, so you can find the options that give the best results from any photo. The HDR styles include Exposure Fusion, which is unbeatable for natural-looking results. Additionally, Photomatix Pro offers batch processing, advanced options for removing ghosts, plus you can blend a source exposure into your final image using a Brush Tool. If you are serious about HDR, it’s likely you will quickly find Lightroom’s HDR feature too limited.
