    So I bracketed my 9 shots, uploaded and aligned them, and everything is fine...until I click save. Once I save it, I get this broken up picture that looks nothing like my image. You would have no idea it was ever an image at all! Almost like when old TVs used to do the rainbow line thing when you lost connection. Any idea what's up?

    I'm using the Plug-in with Aperture 3, by the way. Thanks!

    From what I remember (I haven't used Photomatix in years), after you merged your exposures and did the first saving, you THEN have to take the second step and tonemap your photo. That's an important step which will create the photo in the way you want it to look like. I think... if I remember right... :scratch:
