HDRsoft announces Photomatix 6

Yesterday HDRsoft announced the latest version of their ever popular HDR software PhotoMatix Pro 6

The new features are:

More style choice for realistic results

A new HDR rendering method called Tone Balancer gives you more options for achieving a realistic look. It is well-suited to real estate and natural style landscapes.

Refine your image with more control over color

With the new interactive brush tool, you can make color changes to just parts of the image by painting over those areas. You can also remove color casts, enhance skies, and adjust other image features by fine-tuning the saturation, hue, and brightness of individual colors.

Avoid overdoing it

If you want a more realistic look, you can blend your original photo with the HDR rendered image. You can also use a brush to blend specific areas with the original photo, or one of the other photos from a bracketed set.

Remove distortion from your photos

If the horizon isn’t straight or vertical objects like buildings aren’t vertical, you can quickly straighten your photo and fix perspective issues where lines don’t look parallel when they should. These are particularly helpful features for architectural and landscape photographers.

A more intuitive workflow

Whether you are working with a single image, or a bracketed set of photos, a more intuitive workflow makes it easier to load and choose images and proceed through to editing.

I’ve just gotten a hold of  the software and am still testing it out. In pne image I tried today in a blind test at Facebook The Photomatix Pro 6 Image was liked better than a LR HDR Image 18 to 4.

I’ll have a full review soon

    I have all my photos in Apple Photo. Will I be able to use Photomatix 6?

      Kathryn. You CAN. But you would have to use Photomatix 6 as a Standalone Apple Photos does not support multiple photo export. Only Lightroom can do that (as a Plug-in) . But You can open the photos you want to merge from within Photomatix and still get great results
