AURORA HDR Pro
Aurora HDR Pro is another outstanding photo editing tool for Mac. HDR is another tool to make your pictures stand out from the crowd.
HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. Pictures are taken in series or one and are processed and combined to one by adjusting the contrast ratios.
An HDR image is commonly made by taking three photos of the same scene, each at different shutter speeds. The result is a bright, medium, and dark photo, based on the amount of light that got through the lens.
A software process then combines all the photos to bring details to the shadows and highlights both. The result of this magic are stunning pictures with vivid colouring and lighting.
Installation is straightforward and Aurora HDR Pro will automatically search for supported software to install plugins. Now just click on ‘Done’, and setup is finished.

AURORA HDR PRO INTERFACE
The interface is like all other Macphun apps and this approach makes it easier on the user to get familiar with the layout and options. On the right sidebar all presets and adjustable controls are situated in a clean
and professional look.
AURORA HDR Pro has Presets available for different situations or requirements of the photographer. Within these Presets all adjustments are possible.
WORKING WITH AURORA HDR PRO
Importing a picture in AURORA HDR Pro is a little different from what we used to. Just choose ‘open’ and pick your photo. Now a import screen appears with option for Chromatic Aberration Reduction. Tick the box
and choose CREATE HDR.
What is Chromatic Aberration Reduction:
Chromatic Aberration, also known as “color fringing” or “purple fringing”, is a common optical problem that occurs when a lens is either unable to bring all wavelengths of color to the same focal plane, and/or when wavelengths of color are focused at different positions in the focal plane. Chromatic aberration is caused by lens dispersion, with different colors of light travelling at different speeds while passing through a lens. As a result, the image can look blurred or noticeable colored edges (red, green, blue, yellow, purple, magenta) can appear around objects, especially in high-contrast situations.
IMPORTING PHOTO TO HDR
Right now the fun part starts, changing you from an average painter into a real REMBRANDT.
Just go through all Presets available and see what is already made for use.
See how colouring is changing to vivid showing all details. This is the way to create your own masterpiece.
Once you are happy with the end result, its time to export your photo. Finally Macphun created a nice export function with available presets.
AURORA HDR Pro is a masterpiece for HDR editing. Working with this app is a real pleasure and provides full creative settings to turn you in a Pro.
