Aurora HDR 2017 Tutorial - Advanced Features
While I may not be the most dynamic speaker in the world, I got a lot of emails from readers who loved what they learned in my original Aurora HDR video (found later in this article). As a result, I thought I'd cover some of my favorite new features of Aurora HDR 2017 in this new three lessons video created on October 15, 2016:
The files featured in the video were full size, and unless it was otherwise noted the processing occurs in real-time (first lesson only).
While most people bracket using a small range, for fun this tutorial includes an extreme range of three manual exposures that I blended together in Aurora HDR 2017 (see the video for more details):
I took these very long exposures in the evening in Winter 2012, but no product until now has done them justice in an HDR merge. The results you see in this article were done entirely in Aurora with no additional processing of any kind.

What's New for 2017
Here's a summary of what's new:
- Speed Improvements
- Polarize Tool
- Batch Processing
- DNG File support
- HDR Noise Reduction
- Top and Bottom Adjustments
- Luminosity Masking - see how awesome this is in my new video
- Radial Masking
- Advanced Tone Mapping
- and more
My new video focuses on the speed improvements and luminosity masking, as well as some of my favorite new presets. However, I'll be covering some of these other new features in a future video that is part of my full review.
I love this version way more than its predecessor, which I thought was the best HDR editing software on the market, so that's saying a lot!
