5 FREE Photomatix Pro Presets! 

Note: I have uploaded the .zip file "" to MediaFire to ensure a safe and FREE download! I hope you enjoy! 

Instructions for downloading 
  1. Click to download the "" file. I suggest saving to your desktop. 
  2. Unzip the file. 
  3. Select the 5 files.
  4. Copy and paste into your "Photomatix Pro Preset" folder. OR... Open up Photomatix Pro. Start to process an image. On the bottom of the adjustment menu, click import preset. (Seach for your desktop or where ever you saved the files). You might have to do it one at a time to get all three in. This is why I prefer the copy and paste method. 
  5. Once imported, you find them located in your custom preset collection.

Included File Names: 
  1. frB&Wco.xmp
  2. frExpoFusco1.xmp
  3. frNatCoolco.xmp
  4. frStyleco.xmp
  5. frToonB&W2.xmp

I recommend playing a little with the slider adjustments to get the exact look your going for if it's not there already. If you have any questions feel free to contact me! Leave a comment or Tweet me @Batteman87 



  1. Thank you Jimmy for creating and offering these presets. I really love the B&W

  2. thank you for these. Unfortunately I had trouble importing the presets based on your instructions. Could it simply be that I have a different version? I'm not sure. I have Pro 4.1

    Thanks for your help.

  3. I'm sorry you're having trouble. What OS system are you using? I think there is a new version of Photomatix but the plugins will work with any and all versions unless HDRSoft changes something. Are you able to get to the Photomatix presets folder? And have you unzipped the file?
