Yesterday, Photomatix for Linux 1.1 has been officially released after several weeks of beta testing.
Photomatix for Linux uses the same rendering engine as Photomatix Pro 6 what means you can now create really incredible HDR images on Linux 🙂

The full license of Photomatix for Linux 1.1 costs 49 USD. Free trial version is also available for download.

New Features in version 1.1
Here’s the summary of new features available in version 1.1:
- New Tone Mapping method – Tone Balancer, which is great for realistic HDR photos. And as you might already know from my overview of Photomatix Pro 6, it’s my favourite tone-mapper besides Contrast Optimizer.
- Finishing Touch window which offers several basic adjustments – Contrast, Sharpening and Crop.
- Thumbnails for custom presets
- New slider for Contrast Optimizer called Luminance.
- RAWs from several more recent cameras are now supported.
- Added German language version.
- Slightly updated user interface (as you can see in the screenshot attached to this post).
