What is Aurora HDR 2018?
HDR is just a fancy word for really high contrast in a photo or TV picture. Good HDR photo editors, like Aurora HDR Pro, take multiple shots of the same photo at different exposures, or "brackets", and smush (super technical there) them together to make one super awesome image. The reason you use multiple images is because different aspects of the image are emphasized with more or less light.
Aurora HDR is not just a tool for merging bracketed images, it provides a whole editing suite of options to create just the right high dynamic range look for your best photos. It's similar to other editors in that it offers one-click presets and advanced tone-mapping, layers, noise reduction and luminosity masking controls.
It's not like the others because it offers all of this functionality in an interface that's actually easy to use.
I’ve used both Aurora HDR and Adobe Lightroom. Here are the major differences between these two photo editing software tools from a non-pro perspective.Read More

What are the new features and improvements in this version of Aurora?
I have to admit, I'm pretty excited about the new version of Aurora HDR that's coming out. A more complete list and explanation of what's new and improved is listed here.
Easily the biggest "news" with this release of Aurora is that it will also be compatible with Windows computers as well.
- Lens Correction Tool - The new Lens correction filter easily fixes all kinds of lens distortion, from barrel to pincushion, to chromatic aberration and vignetting.
- New User Interface - Redesigned from scratch, the modern and responsive user interface brings a powerful, yet joyful experience to HDR photo editing.
- Cross-platform version - Aurora HDR 2018 will be available both for Mac and PC (Windows) users. Files are interchangeable and mixed-computer households can share the same product key.
- Speed Improvements - Up to 4x improvement in RAW image processing, and up to 200% faster merging and masking performance means that Aurora HDR 2018 is dramatically faster than the last version.
