Batch settings in Photomatix *for Mac*

Remember this post? When I recorded that tutorial I was still using a PC (RIP little Valentine). When I switched over to a Mac I had to reset and resave my Photomatix batch settings. I ran into a little hitch which I attribute to Macs being Macs and, since I’ve received several inquiries, I’m reposting for Mac.

So go back and watch the video in the original post. Go ahead…

Back? Okay, the only difference between Mac and PC is that Mac hides the presets from you. Or maybe I’m just not MacMinded enough yet to know how Macs save things. And something else that’s weird on a Mac… Sometimes when you open the batch dialog your previous settings will be there, sometimes not. If you have to navigate to the settings you have to know where they live and, again since I’m not very MacMinded, that was problematic for me. So, here’s the secret.

User | Library | Application Support | Photomatix | Presets | (whatever you named your file).xmp

Memorize that location because, like I said, sometimes you’ll have it but sometimes you’ll have search for it. Everything else is the same.

Questions? Hit me up in the comments.
