Plugin automates HDR processing of bracketed photos in Lightroom, with the ability to preview the HDR effect

BRIGHTON, England (PRWEB) May 28, 2019

HDRsoft announces the introduction of the Photomatix HDR Batch plugin for Adobe Lightroom that lets users merge multiple stacks of bracketed exposures, and process them with HDR presets in a large range of styles. The plugin is particularly useful for real estate photographers and any other Lightroom users who need to merge a high volume of bracketed photos.

The HDR Batch Plugin processes bracketed exposures that are grouped into stacks, enabling HDR merging of multiple bracketed sets with a varying number of bracketed photos per set. Users who haven’t organised their bracketed photos into stacks can still batch process their photos by specifying the number of bracketed photos per set.

The plugin offers a wide variety of HDR styles, with over 40 presets grouped into categories such as “Realistic”, “Artistic” and “Real Estate”. Users can preview the effect of any preset before starting the batch process. They can also interactively fine tune the HDR settings and create their own presets.

The HDR Batch Plugin includes options for automatically aligning hand held photographs and for removing “ghosts” or visual artifacts when moving people or objects are present in the scene. The resulting HDR photo can be exported as TIFF or JPEG.

“Merging multiple bracketed images manually can be a time consuming task,” said Ron Pepper, HDRsoft’s Marketing Director. “Now Lightroom users can start a batch, then walk away while the plugin does the heavy lifting in the background — a big time saver for anyone who has a lot of HDR images to create after a photo shoot.”

The plugin is now available on Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic CC on Windows and Macintosh. The price of one license is a $49 one-time purchase. Customers who purchased a license for the Photomatix Pro Plus bundle will receive the plugin for free. Those who purchased Photomatix Pro can get the plugin for $20 by upgrading to the Photomatix Pro Plus bundle.
