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:UsersUserNameAppDataRoamingHDRsoftPhotomatixProPresets 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 Thumbnails Preset Name Preset Description
BlackWhite This preset I use when I want to create Black & White HDR images.
Castle I use this preset when shooting architecture shots.
Cemetery I use this preset when creating some dramatic mood in the architectural shots. It also works quite well for me when shooting cemetaries.
City I use this preset when shooting in the city and it’s quite shadowy.
Fountain I use this preset when shooting all kinds of fountains and sculptures.
GoldenHour1 I use this preset when shooting HDR architectural shots during the golden hour. It makes images even more warm and golden.
GoldenHour2 I 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.
Lake1 I use this preset when shooting sunsets over lakes or seas.
Lake2 I use this preset when shooting sunsets over lakes or seas.
