Aurora HDR is one of the most intuitive applications that allows photographers or novice users to utilize a modern set of tools used for creating dynamic, unique, and beautiful images with HDR optimized by using image tone mapping, an advanced technique used by many veteran photographers to make the photos more crispy and stylized and retaining the original effects without compromising the quality of the picture. It functions by preserving the range of detail in the deepest shadow and brightest highlights of a toned mapped file, which is difficult to achieve in a single photo using any method. This allows the photographer to bypass the limits placed by the dynamic range of the camera’s sensor.

It grants flexibility, creative freedom built with powerful features to create HDR photos in minutes without using any third-party programs like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

Features of Aurora HDR

Selective light adjustments
One of the noteworthy features of Aurora HDR is its ability to control exposure levels separately on the top and bottom parts of your image. This tool gives you accurate control using the digital equivalent of a desirable graduated HD filter, also make sure to check out the shift and rotation sliders for a completely custom look.

Complete set of HDR tools
The software makes it easier for users to learn every element and feature and has an adaptable workflow that supports every single style of HDR. It makes the editing and creation of beautiful pictures very simplistic with minimal effort with the help of automatic deghosting technology and auto-alignment and features a total of 69 powerful tools and 1-click presets.

Working with multiple layers
Aurora HDR gives you full control of your editing, unlike other HDR programs, Aurora grants you to create and work with multiple layers to get the exact result and feel you’ve envisioned out of your HDR workflow. You can create custom effect masks, luminosity masks, texture overlays, and brushes to selectively polish the specific parts of your photos and adjust the opacity of each layer.

Various presets
Aurora HDR comes with various preloaded presets that create smoother and realistic HDR pictures. You can come up with your own custom presets and the ability to import them and share them with the community and photographers.
