AuroraHDR 2018 plugin” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information. Aurora 2018 has the latest update. My new 16” MBP has the latest update>macOS Catalina 10.15.3. I've purchased Aurora way back in 2016 and always used it as a plugin without any issues. I was emailed that this was being worked on, but have't heard anything. I love Aurora & it's a super cool product, but I want it as a "plugin." I really want to purchase Luminar 4, but I'll wait and see what progress is made first.

I cannot comprehend why MacPhun had to create this entirely non-standard way of identifying their software. If they want to use the year it was first sold, then fine! Use the year in the version number! But to have a year in the name then number each year's version progression as 1.0, 1.0.1, 1.1 etc is ridiculous. I have Aurora HDR version 1.2.8. But darn, it's from 2016, before they even began putting year numbers into the app's name. Very silly and disrupting.

Impressive BUT, when I read : "Requirements : Intel, 64-bit processor OS X 10.10 or later", I expect a Core2Duo is OK… In fact this app doesn't work on my mid-2007 iMac (oh God, 10 years…). The answer from MacPhun support is : "It seems that your Mac was released before 2009 and it is using old hardware architecture, that is why this issue occurred. Unfortunately, Aurora HDR 2018 can work only on Macs from late 2009 or newer. Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with." Thus it should work on a MacBook late 2010, with a slower processor than may iMac ? Think about it before buying this software.

This is an outstanding piece of software - stable, with a refined interface that is a joy to use, and extremely powerful. This is a tool that is an absolute must-have for any professional photographer. My only complaint would be the price: those of us who are only hobbyists, might find the price a little out-of-budget - so decreasing the cost, or at least offering cross-over pricing, might be a great way to increase the user-base.

MINDBLOWING!!!! These developers deserve every design award possible. As an avid user and subscriber to Adobe's Lightroom and Photoshop CC, I'm blown away by the power and usability of Aurora. I purchased the first version and the second version because these folks truly love what they do and the program updates and support are outstanding. The power and ease of Aurora make me smile every time I work on a photo.

As a newcomer to HDR photography and processing, I've dabbled with a few different programs. Not only is the interface for AuroraHDR modern and sleek (think Lightroom), but there are excellent tutorials and examples on the MacPhun website. This has made all the difference for me. Great app with good support from the authors.

Just bought this, then realized did not include plugins. Now can't update to Pro version through MacUpdate. Buy it from App Store instead-then can still update (unless there is way to do this through MacUpdate - please tell me!)

Please note that the app above that you purchase from the Mac App Store is not the same as the "pro" version offered by MacPhun on their website for $99. Go to the MAS and read the "most critical" comments to see how the MAS version disappointed some users. If a version without certain features works for you, then the current $30 price looks good.

Be careful with Aurora HDR. The company changes your pricing in the shopping cart while you are purchasing the program. VERY DISHONEST company and they try to scam clients. RUN, RUN, RUN, unless you like to be ripped off!!!!
