Installing Aurora HDR 2018 as a Plugin

While Aurora HDR is a full-featured stand-alone application, some users also choose to install and run it as a plugin for other popular photo editing software. If you downloaded from the Mac App Store or choose to install as a plugin at a later time, you can easily do so.

1. Make sure Aurora HDR is open. 

2. On a Mac, simply choose Aurora HDR > Install Plugins… or on a PC choose File > Install Plugins 

3. A new dialog box appears to show you which supported host applications you have currently installed on your computer.  


4. The host applications supported by Aurora HDR 2018 are: Adobe Photoshop Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Adobe Photoshop Elements (PC support coming soon) Apple Aperture (Mac-only)

5. Click the Install/Uninstall button for the apps in which you’d like Aurora HDR to run.

6. When finished, click Done to close the installer window.

TIP

In addition for Mac-users (though it’s not listed in this plugin dialog box) Aurora HDR will be operating as an editing extension in Photos for Mac. This will allow you to use it on your computer as an additional editor within the Photos for Mac application.

NOTE

For the best results, quit the host application (such as Photoshop) before you install a plugin. You may be prompted to input your Administrator password to complete the installation.
