    I just downloaded photomatrix Pro and did some HDR photos,

    I saved them but now when I try to upload them they don't work.

    Photobucket and other sites say it needs a JPG, GIF ect... extension.

    I tried opening the photos on paint and saving them but they won't even open there.

    How do I turn these photos into JPG extension?

    From what I know, Photomatix automatically saves them as jpg-files when you are done with your tone mapping. Well, at least my own demo version does... :scratch:

    Ahh it's so confusing,

    I can't upload the photos at all.

    Anyone have any idea how to do this?

    I might be work but I think photomatix saves them as TIFF's maybe you can use photomatix to save them as jpg, or open them in photoshop and save them as jpg's

    Im having a similar problem. After making a HDR in cs3 it doesnt give me the option to save it as a JPG. And it wont let me upload the psd files.

    guys:

    Make sure you are saving your HDRs as 8-bit color depth. I know in photomatrix there is a checkbox to save in 16-bit or 8-bit. In PShop i believe you have to go into a menu to do it, I forgot which exactly.

    JPGs must be 8-bits, you cannot save a 16-bit HDR into JPG format.
