5 Essential Adjustments in Aurora HDR 2018

Jim Nix has picked five of the most basic adjustments that can be applied to every image.


The first is HDR Enhance, which brings up details and doesn’t create artifacts or halos. The second is contrast, which is used to make the photo look brighter and more realistic. Then Smart Tone comes into the game to highlight dark areas, or – if you drag it to the left – to make them even darker. The next step is adjusting vibrance and saturation, essential sliders for making your image colorful.


With temperature and tint, you can finalize your edits and set the warmth of the image. Go ahead and start mastering Aurora HDR!
