    Do you wonder why your photos don’t look like what you expected? It’s such a beautiful world. Why are photos that come out of our cameras so flat and unemotional? It’s because our eyes can see more light than a camera can capture. The solution to capturing the beauty of a shot is HDR.

    HDR is an abbreviation for high dynamic range. HDR photography allows you to create stunning and mind-blowing photos that include incredible lighting, color, and detail you couldn’t otherwise achieve by taking a single photo. An HDR photo displays maximum details for recreating all the beauty you perceived at the moment you took the shot.

    When it comes to editing and creating your HDR photos, Aurora HDR is the world’s most powerful HDR software made exclusively for the Mac (coming soon for PC). Aurora HDR is a joint project developed by Macphun, an award-winning software company, and Trey Ratcliff, the world’s most renowned HDR photographer. Aurora HDR is fast, easy to use, and allows you to create stunning HDR photos in minutes.
