PhotomatixCL is a command-line program for HDR photo processing and designed to be integrated into automated imaging solutions.
PhotomatixCL takes a set of bracketed photos as input. It merges the photos to HDR with alignment and ghost removal options, processes them with tone mapping or exposure fusion, and saves the resulting tone mapped / fused image as JPEG or TIFF, along with the 32-bit merged HDR image file if desired.
PhotomatixCL is based on the same HDR styles and presets as the Photomatix Pro application. You can get a good idea of what PhotomatixCL can do by using the Batch Bracketed Photos tool of Photomatix Pro.
The commands for using PhotomatixCL are described in the PhotomatixCL Documentation.
PhotomatixCL runs on Windows and Linux.
The pricing for a PhotomatixCL license is detailed here.

If you installed PhotomatixCL on a distro other than the ones supported and are getting an error about loading a 'libIlmImf' library, then try the statically linked version of PhotomatixCL instead:
or if you running on Ubuntu 14.04:
Note that the statically linked version doesn't include lens correction.
Go to the directory where you want PhotomatixCL to be installed, and run this command:
tar xf FolderDownloadedFile/PhotomatixCL-6.0.tar.gz
FolderDownloadedFile is the path to the folder where you downloaded PhotomatixCL.
See the syntax and commands for using PhotomatixCL in the PhotomatixCL Documentation.
If you are running on Windows, you can also use the PhotomatixCL Driver program to run PhotomatixCL on a folder of bracketed photos.
