What is everyone here using for HDR? Program, version? Saw photomatix had a basic version for $39 or the pro for $99. Not sure I'll be doing a whole lot of batch processing and such that I'd need the full version. Or does PSE do HDR and star trails? I'm just wanting to play with these a little and don't want to put a bunch of cash into it just yet. I would like to keep all my stuff compatible so if PSE will do those types of things I'd rather stick with that. Anyhow, any info will help.
I've been using photomatix for about two years now I really love the program, I've never used PSE, so I can't help you there.
