Dedicated to high dynamic range image processing, Aurora HDR 2019 from Skylum is a versatile application helping to achieve greater detail and color accuracy with both merged composite images and single-frame images.
Employing a Quantum HDR Engine, merged images benefit from intelligent and automatic tone mapping to produce vivid colors without over-saturation or increased noise.
In addition to simply merging HDR composites, Aurora also incorporates numerous filters for fine-tuning your look, as well as HDR Looks for making one-click, repeatable adjustments to images. HDR Smart Structure and HDR Details Boost technologies have also been added, and help to increase apparent detail in imagery without causing haloing or unnatural lighting effects.
Additionally, this 2019 edition adds support for working with LUT (lookup table) Mapping, which mimics a cine workflow for tuning colors and tones to achieve a coherent look throughout a series of images. Also, while Aurora HDR 2019 is a fully standalone application for Mac operating systems, it can also be used as a plug-in for select Adobe, Skylum and Apple editing applications.
