    +Brent Burzycki , How can I find the Photomatix Pre-set folder? Mac's finder seems incapable of locating it with search.

    This might help +steve walser

    Video How-to:

    Installation Instructions:

    1) After you have downloaded “Trey's Photomatix Presets Vol”, unzip it. Inside you’ll find 27 .XMP files. You may have already done this! 🙂

    2) Open up Photomatix and load in some image(s) you’d like to work on. Click Edit > Tone Mapping to pull up the presets panel.

    3) At the top of the presets panel, you will see a box where you should select “Import presets…”

    4) Navigate to where you unzipped your presets and select them all. To select them all, click the first one, then shift-click the last one.

    5) Click Import.

    6) Enjoy and tell your friends! 🙂 We get by on word-of-mouth, not by advertising, so I appreciate it when you tell your friends and family – thanks! 🙂

    Nope, Trey has already deleted the Photomatix Presets in the video and doesn't talk about where the folder is hidden.

    Maybe this +steve walser

    "I downloaded a load of Photomatix pre-sets from They came as an archive of .xmp files without any instructions on how to install them.

    Fortunately I had already created and saved a pre-set so I just had to locate that on the file system. I found it in my ~/Application Support/Photmatix/Presets folder. Then I just dragged the contents of the archive into that folder and now I have 25 shiny new pre-sets to play with."

    Finally found the trick.

    Macintosh HD/Users/"YOUR USERNAME"/Library/Application Support/Photomatix/Presets. When I was looking for this "Library" folder I had the hardest time finding it in the Finder. I would click on my username and all normal folders would show up, except for the Library folder, so I thought it was hidden, which it kind of was. To show the Library folder, I clicked on my user folder and then while in the folder I right-clicked to bring up "Show View Options", and the last check box was "Show Library Folder".
