Macphun launches Aurora HDR high dynamic range software for Mac users
Software developer Macphun has announced a new package designed to help photographers to combine multiple exposures into HDR images. Created in partnership with HDR specialist Trey Ratcliff, Aurora HDR provides tools for producing a wide range of effects via both manual controls and a collection of pre-sets. The pre-set looks are a combination of standard styles as well as Signature Pro sequences that emulate some of Trey's favorite workflows.
The new application, which is available only for Mac users, features layers, masks and brushes for selective editing, as well as texture blending and radiance controls. The company points out that the software can be used to create very moderate and natural looking images as well as the more extreme tones and colors most people readily associate with HDR.
TIFF, RAW and JPEG files are supported for combining within the program, and the company promises a friendly and easy-to-use interface. Aurora HDR can be used as a standalone application or as a plug-in for Abode’s Photoshop and Lightroom, as well as Apple’s Aperture programs.
