What is HDR?

High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography is a popular photographic technique designed to overcome the limitations of image sensors in digital photographs. This process utilizes multiple exposures of the same subject, each shot at different exposure values (“brackets”). Those are then automatically merged into a single shot which encompasses a greater exposure range.

Pricing and Availability:

The standard version of Aurora HDR is available via the Mac App Store. Aurora HDR Pro is available direct for $99 or via the three month Aurora HDR installments plan.
