Replaced all other tools! I have used different HDR tools ... But they all look like toys in compare with Aurora HDR 2018 (Express). Very fast and simple to use.

The best hdr download! I'm enjoying trying out Aurora on a variety of photos. Since I do a lot of candid people captures, am pleased to see results on people as well as landscape.
