My Photomatix Pro presets

Boca do Inferno


Hi guys!

Note: you will find even more presets here.

No new photo today as today I decided to release some of my favourite Photomatix Pro presets for you to use.

Presets are important part of photo editing workflow and Photomatix Pro is no different here. In case of spending half an hour moving the sliders I just choose preset adjust one or two sliders (most often saturation and temperature) and I can click "Processs button".

  1. Click download to start downloading presets.
  2. Then unzip them.
  3. Copy folder contents to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\HDRsoft\PhotomatixPro\Presets where UserName is your user name.
Below there is a list of all presets from this archive with a short description for what I use each of them. I decided to add a thumbnail showing the difference between the presets.
Also be sure to check out my HDR tutorial.

Preset ThumbnailsPreset NamePreset Description
BlackWhiteThis preset I use when I want to create Black & White HDR images.
CastleI use this preset when shooting architecture shots.
CemeteryI use this preset when creating some dramatic mood in the architectural shots. It also works quite well for me when shooting cemetaries.
CityI use this preset when shooting in the city and it's quite shadowy.
FountainI use this preset when shooting all kinds of fountains and sculptures.
GoldenHour1I use this preset when shooting HDR architectural shots during the golden hour. It makes images even more warm and golden.
GoldenHour2I use this preset when shooting HDR architectural shots during the golden hour. It makes images even more warm and golden. Note that it's a bit softer than GoldenHour1 preset.
Lake1I use this preset when shooting sunsets over lakes or seas.
Lake2I use this preset when shooting sunsets over lakes or seas.
