Photomatix Pro for Mac OS X - Version 2.5.4 Vollversion
Drag the file "Photomatix Pro" (the file with the umbrella icon) to your Applications folder. Double-click the Photomatix icon in its new location to begin using it, or drag it to your Dock for easy access.
Once Photomatix Pro is installed, you can safely "eject" the volume and dispose of the .dmg file you downloaded.
Photomatix Pro version 2.5.4 requires Mac OS 10.3.9 or higher. Photomatix Pro is a Universal Binary, it will run natively on both PPC and Intel Macs.
