Aurora HDR. Is it better than what's already out there?

Guys, did you read about DxO acquiring Nik Collection from Google? Very exciting news.

https://nikcollection.​dxo.com/ (external link)

Very cool. The new version of DxO Optics Pro, now called DxO PhotoLab, implements local corrections and uses the Nik U-Point approach to auto masking:

“We are very excited to welcome the Nik Collection to the DxO family,” said Jérôme Ménière, CEO and founder of DxO. “DxO revolutionized the image processing market many times over the years with its innovative solutions, and we will continue to do so with Nik’s tools, which offer new creative opportunities to millions of photographers. The new version of our flagship software DxO OpticsPro, which is available as of now under its new name DxO PhotoLab, is the first embodiment of this thrilling acquisition with built-in U Point technology.”

As a beta-tester for DxO I have been able to test DxO's early implementation of this feature and I am encouraged and impressed at how the devs have incorporated it into the raw conversion workflow.

thanks for sharing @digital_AM!

This part of the press release made me read it twice 'Aravind
Krishnaswamy, an Engineering
Director with Google
We’re thrilled to have DxO, a company dedicated
to high

quality photography solutions, acquire
and continue to develop it.
I bet Google are happy to pass the buck to someone else as they did zilch after aquiring it themselves.


Many Thanks,
Russell.

you can sit all day sliding sliders and get frustrated regardless of what software you have been told is "the best!"

I did see and use Nik. this could prove interesting !!

Onto Aurora, I was at there group page today on FB, and they just did a second update since launch for Mac & Windows Aurora 18, and so many bugs still exist, items missing and the link from LR & PS is now broken to Aurora as a plugin....so you cant import to Aurora. Many have asked for refunds . Support is 100% useless.

Support responds soon as to all the complaints

Someone responded, please tell me is soon a day, days, week, weeks, month, months, year years..
Because it took you over two years for a windows version, and you would report it will be available soon.


Sounds like they need new management, the product was not ready for release, yet they launched.. A lot of frustrated folks.
Hope DXO operates differently

For the most part, it has in the past

P.S. I ditched Aurora for Windows before the trial expired!
