Pho­tomatix has long been the go-to soft­ware for mak­ing HDR images. To get the most out of it you’ll need at least three ex­po­sures of the same scene cap­tur­ing high­light, mid­tone and shadow de­tail, which Pho­tomatix merges to form a sin­gle tone-mapped im­age. You can then fine-tune the ef­fect. Al­ter­na­tively, the pre­sets achieve a range of styles with min­i­mal ef­fort.

Pho­tomatix is show­ing its age but can still gen­er­ate im­pres­sive images. How­ever it’s up against Google’s HDR Efex 2, which gives sim­i­lar re­sults and es­sen­tially comes free with Ana­log Efex 2.
