    Hi Luisa,

    The thing is that Aurora HDR uses a pure RAW converter. It shows more information than any other photo processor, so you can see the photo exactly how it was taken by the camera. The lens distortion shown on the RAW photo appears due to the optic peculiarity of the lens structure. 

    There are Lens and Perspective Correction tools in Aurora HDR so you can fix your photo manually. See the screenshot: http://prntscr.com/t7tp9p 

    The only reason you do not see the distortion in other software, e.g. in Photoshop or Lightroom, is due to the automatic Lens Correction.

    As for the standard OS image viewers, they typically use embedded JPEGs to show you the image.  Embedded JPEG is not how your camera shot the photo, it's a beautified version of it.

    Please try using the Lens and Perspective correction tools in Aurora. If you need any assistance with using those, please contact us at https://skylum.com/support
