Montpellier, France – February 9, 2011 - HDRsoft announces the release of Photomatix Light 2.0, the latest version of its high dynamic range (HDR) software intended for enthusiast photographers.
Photomatix Light is a simple and intuitive stand-alone photo processing application that merges bracketed photos to allow a greater dynamic range than is possible with conventional digital photography. It was designed for photographers who want an easy-to-use introduction to HDR that is powerful enough to produce professional-quality results.
Based on the same internal HDR processing engines as Photomatix Pro (the industry-leading HDR software by HDRsoft), Photomatix Light merges bracketed photos and processes them with HDR tone mapping or exposure fusion methods.
After selecting the source photos, users can adjust the processed image by changing various settings, or choose from built-in presets such as 'Painterly' or 'Grunge'. Photomatix Light automatically aligns bracketed exposures, allowing photographers to create HDR photos with or without a tripod.
The new version adds high-quality noise reduction, a second tone mapping method, and visualization of presets, allowing users to quickly choose between built-in presets.
Photomatix Light 2.0 is available for Windows (XP/Vista/7) in 32 and 64-bit versions as well as Macintosh (OS 10.5/10.6). The price of one license is US$39. Photomatix Light 2.0 is a free upgrade for licensed users of Photomatix Light 1.0 and is free for licensed users of Photomatix Pro.
