Hi you will find that Photomatix is probably one of the best HDR software available, you can do HDR images with CS3 but it takes more time
It takes more time and is not as user friendly. Photomatix is the way to go. Paul
Thanks lads. Now where is my credit card !!

Finding this pretty good and its free
But it wont open RAW files. Paul
If you use Lightroom - get 'Enfuse'. Beats Photomatix into a cocked hat.
The most under used feature of Photomatix is the Exposure blending one, the effects are to give a more realistic image than some of the tonemapping we see.
We see a lot of photomatix tonemapped pics on here. Initially I was impressed with the computer game texture but it is starting to look quite cliched and in fact has put me off getting the software as I thought this is how all my pictures would end up looking.
Is this the case or can someone put me right ?.
Only the poorly done tone mapping can be easily identified - there is far more HDR on EPZ using photomatix than you think - only those who know how to use tone mapping judiciously dont advertise it. The key is not to try and reveal every last bit of detail in the shadows, and bump up the saturation. Don't be put off by bad examples.
If you buy a hifi and turn the treble to -10, the bass to +10 and the volume up full then (a) it will sound pretty awful and (b) your neighbours will report you to the council. But it does'nt have to be that way as you're in charge of the controls
An interesting analogy....
Anyone like to point me to a few pics that have not been tonemapped to death ?. Obvious opportunity for legalised fishing !.
Modesty apart, virtually all of my stuff is tone-mapped to some extent ..... you may peek but please don't click or people will think me a shameless hussy
