Aurora HDR is THE BEST HDR software out there. The competition isn’t even close.

If you are into natural or “creative” HDR looks, Aurora can do them both. It comes with tons of presets to get you started and one of my favorite features is being able to work in layers!

HDR Photography is back in a big way with Aurora HDR from Macphun and Trey Ratcliff

Some amazing new software is coming this week from the group at Macphun, makers of the Creative Kit which includes popular Mac only photo enhancement apps Intensify, Tonality, Snapheal, FX Photo Studio, Focus, and Noiseless.

It is a brand new app called Aurora HDR and was made with help from HDR guru Trey Ratcliff.

And let me tell you, it is quite impressive!! I recently received a beta copy of the software and after using it just a short time I was almost instantly convinced that this is the best HDR software out there, bar none.

I have tried this photo with other HDR software programs in the past and always got halos around the trees and inferior color and brightness.

Watch my interview next week in the ON1 Pro Series

Yesterday I was interviewed by ON1’s Matt Kloskowski for their upcoming ON1 Pro Series which will feature short talks and video demos from myself and other really cool photographers.

In the interview Matt and I talked about things such as what I see happening in the next 5 years with photo processing, my feelings regarding how much or how little one can do to an image in post processing, what tool for post processing I would like to see that hasn’t been developed yet, and more!

In addition to the interview there will also be available a short video showing how I work with a RAW photo in Capture One Pro and really make the photo come to life in ON1 Photo 10.

In the first week of the series I join fellow pro photographers such as Hudson Henry, Blake Rudis, Scott Wyden, Scott Davenport, Frank Salas, and Liz LePage. Be sure to sign up and start watching the videos next week.
