With new and improved features, not to mention a new engine under the hood, it's better than ever before.

Aurora HDR 2019 is now available for download. New users can now order it for a one-time payment of $99, while existing Aurora HDR users may upgrade for a special discounted price.

What you've all been waiting for is here! The new version of your beloved HDR editing software, Aurora HDR 2019, has just made a touchdown; and it's everything you could ever want in an HDR application and more.

It all starts with the new engine under the hood, the AI-powered Quantum HDR Engine, which our development team has put in long hours for a few years to perfect. It meticulously and intelligently analyzes each photo so that as it merges bracketed shots, it also minimizes over-saturation and contrast loss, effectively controls the amount of noise, reduces typical issues like deghosting and halos, and recovers lost details in shadows and highlights.

Mark, Shotkit.com:
Aurora HDR is simply the best way to produce a realistic looking HDR image that still delivers enough punch to turn heads. It's great to have Skylum really shaking the tree in the creative industry, pushing the envelope of what's possible with affordable imaging software solutions.

But that's only to start. Aurora HDR 2019 also boasts the new HDR Smart Structure, LUT Mapping, and the reinvented Aurora HDR Looks, not to mention improved HDR Details Boost and Adjustable Gradient.

Here's what some photographers and photo journalists have to say about this new version:

With this version, we’re seeing fewer burnt out colors, we’re seeing fewer halos, and there’s less noise. Right off the bat, we’re starting in a better place. -Anne McKinnell in her YouTube video review

"Overall, this is another home run from Skylum, giving their customers as much flexibility and power as they could hope for when working on HDR images." - Trey Amick, Fstoppers 

"Aurora HDR 2019 also allows you to get a lot of subtle fine control that makes it look like your images were still shot in the real world." - John Aldred, diyphotography.net

There are some other applications available right now, which offer similar techniques and adjustment settings, but I feel Skylum Aurora HDR 2019 is the easiest to master for any user. This software can make any photographer into a true Michelangelo. How’s that for software changing your world?! - Harrij Mensinga, MacSoftReview.com
