Aurora HDR Learning Center

Welcome to my resource page for Aurora HDR by Macphun. All my best tips and tricks in one place!

Interested in HDR photography? Considering buying Aurora HDR by Macphun? Not sure how to get started? Well, you have come to the right place! I have been using it since version 1 and have created a lot of free tutorial videos to help you get started. 

The more I use Aurora HDR from Macphun, the more I find to love about it. It has an amazing list of capabilities and you can literally take a photo from start to finish in this product. I used to make a lot of round trips to other programs to build my HDR photos, and it was time-consuming and a bit wasteful. But now I get it all done in Aurora and it's not only super powerful and flexible, but it's easy to learn.  I am proud to be named a Aurora HDR Master by Macphun, and I have worked with them to create many training videos that are on their website.
