Before Photomatix Pro, HDR software was difficult to use
HDR processing software was in its infancy and difficult to use. You had to do it by hand in Photoshop. Or you had to depend on software such as Enfuse (or, as I call it, “The Dreaded Enfuse”).
“The Dreaded Enfuse” was an early attempt at automating HDR. It was an important step forward. In my opinion it was analogous to the Wright brothers’ first flight.
The problems with Enfuse
First, although “The Dreaded Enfuse” was “free,” non-geeks needed to buy Adobe Lightroom in order to use Enfuse in the way most experts taught it. So, using an open-source “free” product would actually cost you about $150. Second, Enfuse was frustrating. It had a difficult, poorly-designed interface. In fact it was command line software at the beginning, which means you had to type out commands. (As if you were still using MS-DOS circa 1986.) True, you could download various Graphical User Interfaces in order to make the design somewhat better. But there was a catch. Just like Enfuse, these Graphical User Interfaces too were most often freeware/donationware and open-source. You can guess how smoothly that hodgepodge of open-source programming worked together. You had to be a serious geek to make it all work.
Enfuse was amazing because it did after all work, after a fashion. It did create HDR images. But it required special skills, perseverance, and luck. In short, it was only for serious hobbyists.
To state the obvious, it wasn’t at all for busy real estate professionals.
Photomatix Pro to the rescue
The experimental stage is over now. The HDR world changed forever with the advent of Photomatix Pro. With Photomatix Pro, suddenly HDR processing is easy, beautiful, and professional.
Photomatix Pro does cost $99 list price for a license. With my coupon code "DAVIDWIMBERLEY" you get it for only $84.15.
That it has a price at all is the only “disadvantage.” It’s not really a disadvantage at all. To the contrary, it’s evidence of the comforting reality so often true: you get what you pay for.
With this paid product comes an enormous advantage: you get a turn-key piece of software, nicely designed, that works superbly well, without hiccups.
