A couple of days ago, Macphun announced a big upgrade to its popular HDR software. Named Aurora HDR 2017, it promises to bring several new features and improvements. If you are not familiar with it, Aurora HDR is a powerful software designed in collaboration with renowned travel photographer Trey Ratcliff. It is a powerful program that is directly compatible with RAW files, can work with layers and masks and has an exhaustive list of settings specifically designed for HDR post-processing, making it the most complete software available on the market.

The 2017 edition will bring several new features including:
- Batch processing: automatically group your bracketed shots, apply effects and process them with once click of a mouse or trackpad
- Smart polarizer: you can saturate the colours and remove unnecessary glare in the sky, simulating the effect of a polarizer filter
There are also several improvements including a renovated interface and a more powerful tone mapping algorithm.
The new version will be available for pre-order starting September 15th and will be ready to download at the end of the same month. Furthermore, the update should also bring the long-awaited Windows version.
