Using Aurora HDR 2018 with Adobe Lightroom

Images in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can be easily handed off for editing in Aurora HDR 2018. To exchange a file from Lightroom to Aurora HDR 2018, follow these steps:

  • Make sure Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is open.
  • Choose your image(s) in Lightroom from the Library or Develop modules that you want to work on with Aurora HDR 2018.
  • Choose File > Export with Preset and choose from one of two options.
      • Open original images. This option sends a 16-bit TIFF file from Lightroom to Aurora HDR 2018 and removes any adjustments that were applied in Lightroom first.
      • Use .TIFF with Lightroom adjusters. This option sends a 16-bit TIFF file from Lightroom to Aurora HDR 2018 and first applies any adjustments that were made in Lightroom to the transferred file.
  • A new dialog appears to indicate that Aurora HDR 2018 is running. 
  • Check the Tone Mapping box if you want to take advantage of Aurora HDR 2018’s tone mapping features
  • Click the Create HDR button to process the image in Aurora HDR 2018.
  • Make any edits or adjustments as needed in Aurora HDR 2018.  You can use presets to speed up your editing workflow.
  • When done, click the Apply button to send the adjusted image back to Lightroom. A new file is added to your Library and stacked with the original in your Library.
