Aurora HDR is a powerful software for all photographers who are passionate about landscapes and architecture and regularly use AE bracketing on their cameras to create powerful images. The new 2018 version will bring the following improvements:
- Lens Correction Tool: a new Lens correction filter that can help you eliminate lens distortion as well as chromatic aberration and vignetting
