Great info! Really helpful for beginners!

LoriderTA says:

boring !!!!

uRabbit says:

Unfortunately, Photomatix never generates a good image for me. They are always somehow jumbled together like stacking pieces of paper and then pulling them down one-by-one so that you can see a strip of each paper underneath. Quite annoying.

You all stared at that ass!!!!

Tristan de Lagasnerie says:

Thank you !

birdmanbl says:

Great clip Trey. Very nice and clearly presented.

mrkialen says:

Nice job, thanx

ForeverDirt3 says:

but you can do everything with the camera raw tool of photoshop too

thegorn says:

Lame. These photos look shit and would have been much better processed by working a single shot.

a4cabkid says:

Thanks so much man this really helped out a lot.

hdrphotolover says:

try this site it helps alot ” hdrphotolover.weebly.com”

stonefarm says:

My first time to see one of your vids. Great stuff and great that you are sharing this excellent way. Thanks 🙂

flintp51 says:

cool video. But next time try making your zoom circle smaller, and not blurring the rest of the image. It’s not so important that we watch the sliders move back and forth as it is to see the affect. Just my 2cents.

Lon1an says:

What version of photomatrix pro is this?

attractivefrenchguy says:

Nice tut… except for the first 9 plus minutes where you wanted to show off your work…

creeper711 says:

Sorry Kay Frank. you should not get something different from what you’re working on when you hit the PROCESS button. Why tweak an image to exactly what you want and then let the software give you what it wants when you hit the process button. The process button means it applies all the changes you made to the image, not that it’s going to ignore the changes you made and give you what it wants. Odd thing when I work on a photoshop preview, I get exactly the changes I made.

Tutorial starting at 6:25.

andrejoaosf says:

whats the version of this photomatix pro? good tutorial

creeper711 says:

STAY AWAY FROM THIS SOFTWARE. I bought it based on this review, BUT it does not output to what you work on in the preview window. So, to be clear you can work on an image for a hour and when you output it you get something completely different. This FACT is hide in the FAQ for the software, You’ll find it after you search for an answer to the problem. You’ll be guessing at the output from this software.

Friends don’t let friends do HDR on drugs =)

@kenuur1 you are wrong

8-bit (24 bits per pixel for a color image) and 16-bit (48 bits per pixel for a color image), both are considered Low Dynamic Range.

32-bit images (96 bits per pixel for a color image) are considered High Dynamic Range. Unlike 8- and 16-bit images which can take a finite number of values, 32-bit images are coded using floating point numbers, which means the values they can take is unlimited. Storing an img in a 32-bit HDR format is a necessary condition for an HDR image

Ian Crane says:

The high dynamic range comes from having more than one photo at a different exposure. The bit depth/format might improve quality but isn’t a requirement. The number of exposures is determined by the dynamic range of the scene, there are no hard a fast rules. 5 is easy because many DSLRs will take 5 bracketed shots automatically.

jmachete says:

why this people do tutorials about HDR if dont know nothing about the subject….

If you are merging jpgs 8bits images you will produce a LDR (Low dynamic range) and never a HDR.

High Dynamic Range images can only be achieved if you are deal with 16/32/64bits images(RAW, EXR, TIFF-16, etc…), never with jpeg 8bits…that is ridiculous

You should never take less then 8 different exposures, 5 images is not enough. Will not look realistic.

For the best results, use Photoshop or HDRShop

Love this! What did you use to record your screencast? 

James Field says:

Awesome video Trey.

Jonathan Bowker says:

Very interesting video .. what did you use to film and display this presentation

stkybk says:

Great work Trey, as always!

Suroshi says:

Nice video! one question: for someone getting started.. nikon d5100 or canon 600d?

Wagsization says:

You really are the HDR master. Thank you for sharing some of your tips!

Daniel Gimbert says:

Thanks alot for this tutorial. Have you used any other HDR programs?

stuckincustoms says:

Thanks very much — glad you like it… Joshonbass hehe great that is funny you first saw me on there…thx again!

ZachMaximus says:

it’s really swell of you to share your knowledge like you do. You seem to sincerely want other photographers to join you, rather than make your technique safeguarded and secretive- and we appreciate it. God bless and keep your shutter moving!

Josh Lawing says:

Very nice tutorial. Simple and to the point. I first saw your work on TWiT Photo and HDR has since made my photos a lot better. It really gives them life and feeling. Keep up the awesomeness!
