    Default Best Mac OS HDR Software?

    AFter one of our PC's died recently we made the decision to go Mac and love them.

    However, the HDR software I was using (Photomatix) doesn't support Mac ... neither does the Oloneo PhotoEngine. Tried one called Luminance HDR and that's the clunkiest, slowest piece of HDR crap I've ever seen.

    Have any of you mac users come across a decent HDR program?

    NIK Software's stuff is all available for Mac. HDR Pro is available alone or as part of the complete set of plugins.
    Have you have trouble finding Photomatix for Mac? http://www.hdrsoft.com/download.html

    Just found that Photomatix Pro does now have a mac version ... as does PS CS5 which arrived last night for me. Will have to check those out as well then.

    Downloading NIK HDR Efex demo right now.

    Tried the Photomatix plugin for PS and I'm unimpressed.
