Trey’s Photomatix Presets

Trey’s Photomatix Pro Presets

These Photomatix Pro Presets will help you feel happy and creative. Your photo will get a very interesting look!

From mild to extreme, you’ll find all the variety you need. Presets come aptly named from “Au Naturale” to “Bob Ross Has Not Left the Building.” You’ll edit with a happy little twinkle in your eye. From “Quaint Hobbit Holes” to “Puff the Magic HDRagon,” you’ll make creations that will shock the nearest hippy. From “A Little Sumfin Sumfin” to “Finding Uncle Remo,” you’ll weave digital art that will make all your dreams come true. Well, a few of them.

I started with over 100 presets and whittled them down to 23. Why 23? Because 22 seemed like too few and 24 seemed like waaaay too many. Besides, frankly, when you start scrolling through 100 presets, they all blend together after a while, and that’s no good. With these 23, you’ll find all the variety you need.

    Trey, I bought the presets and followed the installation instructions but only 6 of them show up in Photomatix Pro. Can I get some help figuring out what is wrong?

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)


    I’ll reply to your email as well, but for the benefit of others: sometimes the presets will only appear when their appropriate Process and Method are selected on the left-hand pane.

    After unzipping the download, there are only 23 presets but the advert clearly states 75+ presets? Did I do something wrong?

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    If you mean after installation, check the Process and Method that I mention below. If this doesn’t help, get in touch at

    I recently purchased the Photomatix Presets, but when I loaded them into the program, they were completely different than what I was seeing on the tutorial. For example, ‘Au naturale’ is soft and colorful in the tutorial, but on my end, using the same image, it is nearly black and even with adjustment I cannot get it to look decent. Is something wrong on my end?

  • treyratcliff

    It really depends on the images you put into it. I’ve never seen it “black” though — that sounds strange. Are you trying pulling in the RAW files or the JPGs? Neither should matter, really. Are you pulling in multiple images?

  • Kristyn

    I’ve been going through the HDR tutorial and I wouldn’t have noticed the difference if it weren’t for the video. Here’s an example, hopefully you can see the sidebar of presets, where the image is very dark whereas you actually have a usable preset in the tutorial. I’ve been searching forums for this problem in Photomatix but haven’t come up with anything.
