Master HDR photography
Aurora HDR provides the essential tools.
Aurora HDR 2019
Award-winning HDR photo editor
Aurora HDR isn’t your typical photo editor. It’s a powerful suite of tools that give you hands-on control over the creation of HDR (high dynamic range) images: those dramatic pictures that can appear almost impossibly vivid and true to life.
Creating a HDR photo involves taking multiple shots at different exposure settings (a practice known as bracketing) and blending them to include only the best parts of each one. The result? Images with the brightest highlights, deepest shadows and most stunning colours; all of which would otherwise be impossible to capture in a single photo, even with the best DSLR camera.
As its name suggests, Aurora HDR was specifically designed for this style of photography. Open a group of bracketed photos you’ve taken (you can select each one individually or import everything into a certain folder) and the app will blend them without a trace of artifacts. Naturally, you can tweak the results: adjust shadows, highlights and colour, as well as apply tone mapping and noise reduction.
Although having manual control over your adjustments is crucial, there will of course be times when you just want to arrive at a beautiful image with just a few clicks. To that end, Skylum, the app’s developer, collaborated with world-renowned HDR photographers to create a series of Looks. These one-click customisable filters and settings instantly apply a style to single or multiple photos.
So whether you’re an experienced HDR photographer or just want to start experimenting with the process, chances are Aurora HDR has the tools you’re looking for. A more vibrant way to view the world awaits.
