Photomatix Presets And Photo Samples!

Photomatix Pro is a stand-alone program that creates and processes HDR (High Dynamic Range) images.

All the HDR images on this website were created with Photomatix Pro. Photomatix Pro has many different settings and adjustments to help you create the best HDR image possible. You can spend a long time making small adjustments to all the settings and still not find one that you like.

We have 3 presets below and people might want more presets, but we don't feel it is necessary to post our saved presets because Photomatix Pro has 32 presets built-in. When I am creating a HDR image I usually go through each built-in preset to see which one looks the best and then make more adjustments from there. I then save the settings that I made as my own presets, which I might be able to use later. Hope this helps, but let us know if you would like to see more of our presets below.

Here you can save Photomatix presets to your computer, most likely in this location, C:\Program Files\PhotomatixPro3\Presets, but it depends on what version of Photomatix Pro you have.

Step-By-Step Instructions For Saving Photomatix Presets

We have provided a sample HDR image, and beside it the Photomatix Presets we used to create the HDR photo.

1) In the text boxes below, you can copy the Photomatix presets from the text box by highlighting the entire contents of the box, by clicking anywhere in the box with your mouse. You'll know the presets have been selected when the entire contents of the box are highlighted in blue.



2) Once the Photomatix Pro3 presets are highlighted in blue, copy the presets by typing (control+c), or by right clicking your mouse in the box and then clicking "copy".



3) You can then paste the Photomatix Pro presets into a text editor program like Notepad, then "Save As", YourFileName.xmp (Note: The filename must have .xmp file extension after it), and save this file most likely in this location on a Windows PC, C:\Program Files\PhotomatixPro4\Presets. On a Mac they should be stored in this location, Go to the main Macintosh HD, in folder Users/[your user name]/Library/Application support/Photomatix/Presets.



4) When you open up Photomatix Pro and get to the Tone Mapping step, look for the "Presets" menu above the "Process" button, click on the presets button, scroll down, and you should be able to find your presets file that you just saved, if you saved it in the correct location.
