What is Aurora HDR 2019?
Aurora HDR 2019 is a standalone HDR program that also works as a plug-in for Lightroom and Photoshop. It can merge bracketed exposure sets or apply HDR effects to single RAW files. It comes with a wide selection of preset HDR effects and extensive manual tools for modifying these effects or creating your own, and even offers support for layers and local adjustments.
Aurora HDR 2019 was a major update powered by Skylum Software’s new AI-powered Quantum HDR Engine for superior merging, ‘spectacular colour’ and no noisy HDR artefacts. Other features include HDR Smart Structure technology and a LUT mapping filter.
There is no sign of a 2020 (or 2021) version yet, however, as Skylum seems to have transferred all its attention to its upcoming Luminar AI software.
