Tone Mapping Plug-In 2.2.1 64-bit (only works in 64-bit edition of Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS6 or CC)
The 64-bit edition of the Plugin can only be installed on a 64-bit OS and requires the 64-bit edition of Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS6 or CC.
The 32-bit edition of the Plugin is compatible with Photoshop CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6 and CC. Though it also works with Photoshop CS, Photoshop 7.0 and Photoshop Elements, it is limited to tone mapping a single image in 8 or 16 Bits/Channel mode, as only Photoshop CS2 or higher support images in 32 Bits/Channel mode.
- Double-click on the file you downloaded to launch the installation setup wizard.
- By default, the setup wizard points to the Plug-Ins directory of Photoshop CS6 and in English language.
If you have updated to Photoshop CC 2014, then you will have to select this directory instead:C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Plug-ins\
For other versions of Photoshop, the directory path to select follows the same pattern -- you would have to replace CC 2014 in the above paths by your version of Photoshop.
If your language version of Photoshop is other than English, you may have to select another Plug-Ins folder name (for instance, "Zusatzmodule" in German, "Modules externes" in French, "Plug-In" in Italian, "Plugins" in Spanish, "Ekstramoduler" in Danish, ...)
- Start or restart Photoshop.
- Merge images to HDR or open an image.
- Choose Filter > Photomatix > Tone Mapping.
If you are merging to HDR Pro in Photoshop CS5 or higher, make sure to select 32 Bit on the Mode combo-box. If you are using Photoshop CC, you will also have to uncheck the Complete Toning in Adobe Camera Raw box.
