Free Aurora HDR 2018 Update Released

Today we released a new, free update to Aurora HDR 2018 which brings several new tools, bug fixes and feature improvements on both the Mac & Windows platforms. Many customers shared their feedback on our just-released hdr software, which contributed to what went into the new release.

Right off the bat, to update follow these instructions: Launch Aurora HDR 2018 as a standalone. It will automatically ask if you want to update, but if not, simply select the Aurora HDR 2018 > Check for Updates… menu to proceed. Your copy will be updated to version 1.0.1.

This is one of the lovely things about modern technology and software development - the ability to easily “push” automatic updates to software as needed. We like this very much and am pretty sure you appreciate it too!
