Update

If you haven’t noticed, a new update is available for Photomatix Pro.

Updates in latest release – v5.0.5
Added support for recent camera models such as the Panasonic GH4 and Nikon D750 and D810.
On Batch Bracketed Photos, resizing options now differentiate between landscape and portrait orientation (by letting the user resize the long and short edge instead of width and height), and offer the ability to automatically set the short edge based on the long edge.
Bug fixed: Processing Nikon D600 Raw files could result in pink highlights. (Bug had been fixed in version 4.2.7 but reintroduced in version 5.0)
Bug fixed: With some specific images, the Batch Bracketed Photos could crash when the “perspective correction” option was left unchecked.
Bug fixed: The ‘360º image’ option of the Fusion/Real-Estate method did not work.
Bug fixed: The Fusion/Real-Estate method didn’t properly support 64-bit addressing, resulting in incorrect result when fusing a relatively high number of large files, such as 7 or more 200 MegaPixels panoramas for instance.
[Win only] Windows 8 users can now run Photomatix without having to install an older version of the .NET Framework.
[Win only] Bug fixed: Crop feature required to start the crop selection from the top left.
[Win only] Bug fixed: Crash when running Photomatix on systems with more than 32 cores.
[Win only] Bug fixed: Button to choose custom output location was sometimes incorrectly disabled in Batch Processing window.
[Win only] Bug fixed: Loading ZIP-compressed TIFF files coming from an iPhone could result in a crash.
[Win only] Bug fixed: No error message was shown when TIFF files with unsupported compression format failed to load.
[Win only] Bug fixed: No error message was shown when TIFF files with unsupported compression format failed to load.
[Win only] Bug fixed: With greyscale JPEG images, the preview on the Deghosting Options window did not display correctly
[Win only] If a font needed by Photomatix is missing on the computer, the FontViewer utility is started to allow installing the missing font directly.
[Mac only] Bug fixed: When a single Jpeg or Tiff file is tone mapped and ‘Yes’ chosen when prompted on whether to apply the noise reduction, the ‘Redo with Other Settings’ feature did not work, hanging the application.
[Mac only] Bug fixed: Loading ZIP-compressed TIFF files coming from an iPhone could hang the application.
[Mac only] Bug fixed: Batch Bracketed Photos didn’t list the Fusion/Auto Preset.

A quick update:
I am working on my images from Italy and I hope to post a few before the end of next week. I’ve been working all week on site updates and they are coming along great. I’m pleased to announce that my website has some new features to offer. You should be able to enjoy the full features of the site as usual from your desktop or laptop, but now the site should scale for your tablet or phone.(Let me know if you have any issues) Another added feature is the iOS icon that you will get if you add my website to your home screen as an icon. I created a basic one for now, but I plan to create something cool really soon.

Other than that I switched to Lightroom 5 upon my return from Italy and I love it. The speed enhancements alone are worth the update! I’ll be getting more under the hood as I process my images from the trip so stay tuned!
Cheers,

Peter


SO excited to have my new site up and running for all to see.  Please feel free to give me some feedback on your user experience. I will continue to update so content should grow fairly regularly. Enjoy…
