Photomatix Pro 6 Release Date News, Rumors & Beta News

hdrsoft photomatix 6

If you work with Photomatix Pro as a standalone or within Lightroom or Aperture, then you know it’s one of the most popular programs for creating crisp and surreal HDR photos (I personally use the one-click presets the most). Plus, it’s a bargain when you compare it to Nik. But for those buying the software for the first time or looking to upgrade, we’re watching the latest release date news and rumors for Photomatix Pro 6 so you don’t get stuck with the outgoing version. So when do we think it will be released? Keep an eye out for the beta version to become available to testers in the summer of 2015 with the full release expected in late 2015.

Be on the lookout for HDRsoft to release Photomatix 6.0 sometime in late-2015.- Expected Photomatix Pro 6 Release Date

Here’s a quick look at the last three full-version releases. We couldn’t find when versions 1 and 2 were released but there were long release date gaps between them (if you’re still running those programs then it’s probably a good time to finally upgrade).

  • Photomatix Pro 5 – This is the current version. It was released in November 2013.
  • Photomatix Pro 4 – Released in February 2011.
  • Photomatix Pro 3 – Released in March 2008.

What if you buy version 5 right before version 6 is released?

HRDsoft has a very generous upgrade policy that we haven’t seen anywhere else. If pick up Photomatix Pro 5 now, which you can save by using one of our coupon codes, you get free upgrades for at least two years from the date of your purchase. Pervious versions have had even longer free-upgrade cycles so no need to worry about getting left behind. This policy is also valid on both Windows and Mac versions of Photomatix Essentials.

    Its motion handling is the best around, as is the merging. I shoot handheld and unless the shutter speed is way too slow, it always does a great job. My only real issue is the way that in a lot of the tone mapping settings t hat areas that should be gray have an ugly coarse noise that often ruins the picture. Hoping they are getting rid of that!

    I would like to have the opportunity to preview a set of images in the batch process to decide if that set need more or less images adding to it. This is before I begin the total batch prcessing of sometimes 500 images in 45 – 55 sets (or groups of images). Then I can walk away from the computer for 20 minutes.

    And always more accurate natural color.

    I have used many HDR programs over the last 6 or 7 years and Photomatix has come a long way. I use it sometimes just for the outside picture becaus eit is good at removing ghosts but for inside real estate pictures I still use TuFuse as, in my opinion, it just has the edge over Photomatix – and it will allow me to prevew a set of images before I batch process them all.
