I recently tried Photomatix Basic and was very impressed. The software was easy to use and the results were great. I was able to quickly combine multiple images with different exposure settings into a single HDR image. The interface was intuitive and the output settings allowed me to adjust the color, saturation, luminosity, contrast, brightness, and other settings. The panorama feature was also a great addition. Overall, I would highly recommend Photomatix Basic for anyone looking to combine images with different exposure settings.

From the developer:
If you have ever photographed a high contrast scene, you know that even the best exposure will typically have blown out highlights and flat shadows. The solution is High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography processing. A free Lightroom Plug-in makes it possible to access Photomatix Pro directly from Lightroom, if desired.
