Are you looking for the perfect tag team of image editing goodness?  Aurora HDR 2018 and Luminar 2018 are perfect companions.  The two applications have similar user interfaces which make them easy to learn.  We’ve designed Luminar and Aurora, so they look and feel related.  If you’ve already mastered Aurora, you can jump right into Luminar (and vice versa).

Why Luminar Users Need Aurora HDR

While Luminar is a full-featured editor, you may love the extra boost to depth and details offered by Aurora.  If you’ve explored shooting multiple brackets (a practice that uses different exposures to show the full tonal range of a scene) you know this offers amazing results.  Whether you shoot landscapes, architecture, or product photography, high dynamic range imaging makes your images look amazing.

Not shooting brackets?  Aurora HDR can still help you get more out of every raw file with its incredible prone-mapping technology. Get richer shadows and bright highlights from a raw file for an amazing starting point. 

Handing off from Aurora to Luminar couldn’t be simpler either.  Just use the built-in Open In command lets you send the file right over.
