It is really rather easy to buy Photomatix. You would first need to go to the main HDRsoft website and choose the specific Photomatix product that you want to buy. You can then pay for the software Online and simply download it to your computer. There is no need to wait for a CD in the mail or pay for shipping. You can even get an instant 15% discount by using the coupon code “RoyaltyFreeStock”, without the quotes, during your order. This coupon code never expires.
If you are not sure which Photomatix product that you would like to buy, you can always download a fully functional trial version of any of the software for sale by HDRsoft. These trial versions never expire and are exactly like the licensed versions, except that they leave watermarks on the final saved images. If you decide to purchase a license, you can simply “unlock” the software with your license information. Also, if you purchase a license to Photomatix Pro, you can run your images back through the software and remove the watermarks, provided they have not received any post-processing in Photoshop or another image editing program.
Photomatix Pro is the standalone version of the software as well as the most popular version. It will merge unlimited exposures, has image alignment, deghosting, and noise removal options all before tone mapping. Tone mapping can be done in either “Details Enhancer” mode or “Exposure Fusion” mode. “Details Enhancer” mode can create either fairly realistic to very surreal results depending on the settings chosen. “Exposure Fusion” is for creating a very natural result. Many people buy Photomatix Pro as part of the Pro Plus Bundle, which also includes the Photoshop Tone Mapping Plug-In as well as the Aperture Plug-In for Mac users.
The ability to download the fully functional trial versions before you actually decide to buy Photomatix , plus the instant 15% discount when you do actually buy, means that you just can’t lose!
