    Hi Randy! Please note that Aurora HDR 2018 does not require Photoshop or Lightroom to work. Aurora HDR 2018 is a standalone app.
    Are you able to launch it in a standalone mode?

    If you want to install Aurora HDR 2018 as a plugin to Lightroom, here are the manual instructions:

    1. Make sure Lightroom is closed.
    2. Open Finder, click Go > Go to Folder and paste the following path: /Library/Application Support/MacPhun Software/AuroraHDR2018/Plug-Ins/. There will be a bunch of files in there, the one you're interested in is AuroraHDR2018Export.lrplugin.
    3. Open a new Finder tab or window and click Go > Go to Folder one more time and navigate to the following path: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Modules/
    4. Copy the AuroraHDR2018Export.lrplugin into the folder that you opened in Step 3.

    You might get asked whether you'd like to overwrite the existing file in the folder or keep both, choose to overwrite in all cases.

    Here are the instructions for Photoshop:

    1. Make sure Phothoshop is closed.
    2. Click Go > Go to Folder and paste the following path: /Library/Application Support/MacPhun Software/AuroraHDR2018/Plug-Ins/. There will be a bunch of files in there, the one you're interested in is AuroraHDR2018Plugin.plugin.
    3. Open a new Finder tab or window and navigate to Applications/your_version_of_Phothoshop/Plug-ins/Filters/
    4. Copy AuroraHDR2018Plugin.plugin into the folder that you opened in Step 3.
    5. Launch Photoshop and see if you have Aurora HDR 2018 under Filter > Skylum Software.
