Photomatix Pro 5.0 (Mac OS X) | 15MB
PhotoMatix is a program that photographers can use to solve a perplexing problem.
The problem is shooting good photos where there is a wide variation in contrast within a scene. For example, in a situation where you want to take a photo of a tall building with the sun high up in the sky in the background and a shadow in the foreground, the problem is that there’s no way to set the camera’s exposure controls to expose all the regions in the scene properly in a single shot
In a situation like that, if you set your camera’s exposure controls to properly expose the building, the background will be washed out, but if you set the camera to expose the background properly, the building will be too dark, as will the foreground.

› Option for automatic image alignment of hand-held shots. Two alignment methods are available, the “by matching features” method corrects for translation, rotation, scaling and perspective.
› Selective deghosting tool for effective removal of “ghosts” in dynamic scenes: users can select ghosted regions with a lasso tool, and change the preferred image taken for each selected region. An option for automatic reduction of ghosting artifacts is also available..
› Option for automatic reduction of chromatic aberrations.
› Option for automatic reduction of noise.
› Reading of exposure information from Exif data.
› Source images can be either 8 bits/channel or 16 bits/channel images, or RAW/DNG files. In the case of RAW files, White Balance and output color space can be adjusted.
