Photomatix 2.4

I didn't know Photmatix 2.4 had been released

I only found the new version after formatting my PC and having to download it again.

Looks like there are some new options as well......or have I just missed them in previous versions

Re: Photomatix 2.4

Photomatix 2.4 : What's New in This Release:

Option for reducing ghosting artifacts in generated HDR image. There is a separate option depending on whether the ghosts are caused by moving objects/people or periodic movements such as rippling water .
Slider to adjust Gamma setting when Tone Mapping with Details Enhancer.
Undo and Redo of the last settings done on Tone Mapping window.
Options for naming of output files of Batch Processing.
Ability to adjust the white balance and output color space when creating an HDR image from differently exposed RAWs from HDR->Generate.
Strip-processing option to generate an HDR image with Batch Processing. This option enables to create an HDR image from large files without exceeding available RAM.
Updated RAW conversion to include recent camera models such as the Pentax 10D for instance.
Sticky settings for Batch Processing (applicable to the general settings for running the batch, and not to the HDR or Tone Mapping settings used with Batch Processing).
Ability to set in Preferences the default White Balance used for RAW conversion.
Option in Batch Processing to leave the aligned results uncropped.
Changed the calculation for the option "Attempt to reverse-engineer tone curve applied" of Generate HDR, and made it available with images in 16 bits/channel mode as well.

Bug fixed: when source images are grayscale, Generate HDR and the functions under the Combine menu should not crash anymore.
Bug fixed: "As Shot" White Balance should now be closer to the expected behavior.
Bug fixed: Low values for the White or Black Clip settings should now be saved correctly in XMP files and as sticky settings
Bug fixed: Custom white balance set on the RAW preview should now be taken into account properly.
Bug fixed: Large File Processing with 16-bit image should now work again.
Bug fixed: HDR viewer and message when opening files should not stay above all other applications anymore.

Re: Photomatix 2.4

I have it. It's good for aligning photo's, not to bad of a job, maybe alittle clean up after a hand held 3 blinker. Question,,,,does CS3 have the align images option ?

Re: Photomatix 2.4

CS3 appears to align three hand held images OK but I've not tried to compare it with Photomatix to see if one is better than the other regarding alignment.

Re: Photomatix 2.4

I remember you bringing out the fact about hdr's being hand held, so I took it on and tried it out last night as a fact. Of course CS2 no option, photomatrix was better and I only had to clean a few edge lines compared to ghosting from PS. I will end up buying CS3 sometime,,,,but faster if it offers something really good,,, "Hand held, ya really need to do magic to get away with that on a three winker....but you did it"
