A HDR Tutorial Using Photomatix

March 31st, 2008

danjryan in the flickr discussion group points out an interesting little HDR tutorial over at

HDR topics are some of the most popular subjects these days. And I can understand why if done well HDR techniques can save time and equipment costs when shooting interiors, which in real estate photography is important. However, the crux of using HDR is to get so you don’t have to spend a huge amount of time using multiple applications to get HDR images to look natural. My criteria for success with HDR is that you have to look closely to tell that an image is done with HDR processing.

  • FYI. In the new Photomatix 3 beta there is a new option box labeled “don’t crop”. This is a great option if you intend to develop a series of photos for stitching into a panorama. Checking this box will insure each result will be exactly the same pixel size (a requirement for most stitching software).

    I realize there is a great debate on which to do first: HDR or stitch. Currently I’m HDRing first, then stitching. This is probably because I don’t have stitching software that will work on RAW files. So I first stitch with Photomatix, then stitch.
