AURORA HDR is an exceptional high dynamic range (HEQ) editing and correction tool released in late November 2021. It is created through a collaboration between photographer Trey Ratcliff and software developer Macphun Software For Mac OS X. The program promises to make taking gorgeous photographs accessible to photographers from all backgrounds, skill levels and ages, all while preserving the clarity of color and tone that film photographers are used to. While film cameras may be the cutting edge of digital photography, most amateur photographers cannot afford the cost of film when they need a powerful tool for photo retouching. AURORA HDR for Mac offers an excellent solution.
In addition to photo-editing software, the program is also available as a video editing software. This includes a user-friendly video screen that offer various options for enhancing photographs with beautiful, natural light, and a wealth of color correction options including hue, saturation, skin tone, red eye, and background blurring. One can even adjust the color of the Auroras. This gives the photographer complete control over their images while preserving the inherent beauty of the original.
When working on an image in the software, it is important to remember to utilize the built-in Tone Mapping tools in order to enhance color in the image. The Tone Mapping tool helps in assigning different intensities or values to every color in the image. The tool helps in adjusting the contrast, brightness, and other hue elements of the image. It is therefore important that one keeps a check on the intensity levels of colors to ensure that the final images retain the true beauty of the captured moments. Overall, tone mapping is an essential aspect of the aurora hdr editing process.
