Skylum announces Aurora HDR 2018 update and Loupedeck+ integration

Skylum Software, the company formerly known as Macphun, has announced an update to its Aurora HDR program.

Aurora HDR 2018 promises a speed boost of up to 180% for Mac OS users when working on bracketed images and 175% when working on single images. Windows users, meanwhile, are set to see a boost of 500% when working on bracketed images and 400% for single images.

Windows users will also receive the same batch processing tool that has been available to Mac users up until now, as well as a refreshed interface, the ability to rename layers, histogram functionality and a flip/rotate tool among other things. 

Mac users, meanwhile, should expect improved plugin stability, increased export speeds and improved memory management when batch processing images.
