    Thanks Austin. Might I suggest that these steps be incorporated into the documentation as I looked in the section on using Luminar as a plugin before asking the question here. It makes sense that it would be doable.

    Bill Nickerson Please note that you can use Luminar 4 as a plugin for Aurora HDR. In the top bar menu choose Plugins > Luminar 4.

    In order to send several photos from Luminar to Aurora HDR just select the photos > right-click > Open In > Aurora HDR.

    Let us know how it goes.

    I see the Luminar plugin (twice) in Aurora. However, I do not see an Open In option in Luminar (Windows).

    I can use Lightroom to send photos to Aurora, why not your own software?

    I followed the instructions in the users guide chapter 6 https://skylum.com/luminar/user-guides/chapter-6-using-luminar-with-aurora-hdr-2019 but don't get any response when selecting for Luminar plugin. Looking into the topic it seems like bracketed photos cannot be opened from Aurora to Luminar using the plug in. Rather it must be exported (ideally in TIFF format) then seperatly opened in Luminar. Can you confirm that this is the workflow for creating a bracketed photo in Aurora, then editing it in Luminar? Thank you

    Hi Brett,

    As for Luminar and Aurora:

    You are right - It's not possible to transfer brackets from Luminar 4 into Aurora HDR. You can create an HDR image from the photos in Aurora and then open Luminar 4 as a plugin for it.
