HDR Software Review

Best HDR Software

I use HDR for about 70% of my photography and I’ve tested every imaginable HDR software product available. Some are free and some cost money. Regular fans of the site know that I only review and recommend software that I actually use.

Roughly 18 months ago I partnered with the amazing team at Macphun to develop an entirely new HDR software tool called Aurora HDR. I worked closely with them to include all of the features I felt was missing from Photomatix, Lightroom and other tools in my quiver. Since it’s release over 1.5million people have downloaded it. I’m blown away! Thank you for believing in us!

Aurora HDR 2018 is now available for both Mac AND Windows! That’s right, the world’s leading HDR photography software has been entirely redesigned with exciting new features, improved user interface, speed improvements, Windows support and more.

Sneak Peek Inside Aurora HDR 2018

Below is a sneak peek video I made that shows off just SOME of the new features!

 

HDR Tutorial

I have a FREE HDR Tutorial here on StuckInCustoms.com that describes the step by step process. If you’d like to dive deeper, I also have video tutorials for Aurora HDR. The tutorials show how I use the tools for a variety of situations… landscapes, sunrise/sunset, people, motion, etc..

HDR Camera

You do not really need a special type of camera, but I do have my HDR Camera recommendations here on the site. There is a bit more detail there, in addition to a description of my own personal gear.

HDR Photos

Below, I have put a few photos of both the software being used and some of the results.
