Photomatix is by far the best HDR software out there, and I have tried them all!
Jeff Dean
We absolutely love Photomatix, it's a cornerstone in our practice and I would never consider using any other HDR tool out there. Every one I've tried has been disappointing and I just love the work we create using Photomatix!
Scott Johnson - Toad Hollow Photography
Photomatix is too much fun! I think I am averaging more than four hours a day using your product. Fantastic results.

I use Photomatix Pro every day in my architectural photography work. I could not live without it!
Johnny Stevens - CPP Photographer
Photomatix is a superior software program that easily beats the competition. I use it all the time and it's the best money I've ever spent on photo software.

Your software is an amazing tool. The only regret I have is not saving all those old images that I thought were bad which would have come alive with Photomatix.

Keep up the great work. People rave about my images... and often don't even realize they are HDRs.
I love your Software and the flexibility it gives me to Capture the ENTIRE picture. I am a former Photofinishing Engineer and your software gives me more flexibility than I ever had with daylight photofinishing machines or even a darkroom.

How satisfying to be a customer of a company that places such value on customer care; a rather rare experience these days.
