In Photomatix, creating a custom preset can help you when processing several files at once. This especially useful if you need to merge several shots for a panoramic photo or a time-lapse sequence. In this movie, author Richard Harrington demonstrates how to create a custom preset and apply it to several photos in HDRsoft’s Photomatix Pro.
- If you have several files that you need to process,…Photomatix can make this task easy.…Perhaps you have a panoramic photo…that you want to merge several shots.…Or maybe a time lapse sequence.…Let me show you how you can create a custom preset…and then apply it to several photos.…To start, I'll click load photos.…And I'm going to choose a single image.…Let's go to the pre-processing group here,…and I'll choose the single image batch.…In this case, I'll select the first photo…in this time lapse sequence,…and click load.…
I'm going to take advantage of Exposure Fusion,…which is an essentially fake way of doing brackets.…But it adjusts the raw file,…and creates a HDR image from the single file.…I'll also reduce the noise here…since this was an evening photo…with a longer exposure and a higher ISO,…shot on a micro 4/3 camera.…It's more likely to have some noise.…I'll click more options here.…Things look pretty good.…And I'll click to see the HDR rendering.…
Now, the single file is loaded…after creating multiple shots from the raw file.…
