    Hi Robert!
    Please let me reiterate my colleague's reply to the post you're referring to:

    "When Lightroom creates a merge, it writes -2 EV into the exif, even though the merge is properly exposed. Aurora tries to compensate for what it thinks is underexposure, and this results in artifacts. We recommend to check the EV of the merge you send from Lightroom to Aurora and correct it if necessary"

    If it doesn't help, could you please send us the files you're working with?
