Do I need the Tone Mapping Plug-In?

If you already have Photomatix Pro, you only need the plug-in for Photoshop if it is important for you to be able to use the Tone Mapping methods within Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC directly.
The standalone Photomatix Pro and Essentials already include Tone Mapping. Additionally, the standalone programs include Exposure Fusion, which is not available in the Tone Mapping Plug-In for Photoshop.
The differences between tone mapping with Photomatix Pro versus tone mapping with the Photoshop Plug-In are detailed here.
