What users say about Aurora HDR

Great HDR tool! Christoph Profanter Aurora 2018 is awesome! I did some HDR´s to compare with results from the 2017 version. For me the results now are looking even more natural or let’s say closer to the raw files. That´s really great!

My #1 HDR software Wayne Brissette I have to say that after using Aurora HDR 2018 on some images that I’ve never been happy with in HDR, Aurora is the only one that really exposed the image to view what I remembered the scene being. It is my #1 go to software for HDR now!

Super easy to use! Larry Carver I really like how Aurora HDR 2018 creates a great HDR image that allows me to do some final touches that I use in processing my images.
