After years of using HDR Efex 2 Pro on my Windows PC, I've recently bought Aurora for my new MacBook. I'm LOVING it and it is so great to be able to produce high quality HDR images again, arguably even better looking than before!
I'm a senior software engineer with a special Innovation Lab in SF, as well as an accomplished photographer with over 530,000 digital photos on file. So I'd like to think I come at using imaging software from a special perspective.
I've long used Lightroom for all of my main editing and prefer to keep using it. So, my workflow involves stacking my HDR images (typically 3 or 5 in number) together, selecting them, and then exporting them to Aurora.
Here are some suggestions to make your Aurora software even better:
- On the initial screen, remember my settings so I don't have to keep selecting them every time (especially auto-alignment).
- I'd love an option to bypass the initial screen altogether, since it serves no purpose in my workflow if suggestion #1 were put into place. If I did mistakenly choose the wrong photos, I'd just press Cancel upon reaching the main screen.
- When the HDR image is rendered and reimported back into Lightroom, it would be really great if it here added to the original Stack. HDR Efex Pro 2 used to do this.
That's all for now. Much thanks to you and your team for creating such great software!
