Alignment Update

The latest version of Photomatix Pro 4.1.1 has a much improved alignment routine. I almost didn't notice the unheralded improvement. So I tried a handheld bracketed set which Photomatix previously had a problem with and the results were quite amazing. The alignment was similar to that achieved with Photoshop CS5.



This change is quite liberating for me making handheld HDR much easier and attractive. Thank you HDRsoft!
