Lightroom 5 and Photomatix

Posted by Mike on July 7, 2014

Recently Photomatix made an export preset to send multiple files to Photomatix to be compiled into a floating point 32 bit file. Then it automatically re imports to Lightroom and you now have 11 or 12 stops of exposure latitude to work with in crafting the “perfect” file. Without all the HDR crap that comes from running the files through regular HDR software. This sample was 5 shots combined into one and then manipulated for final results.
