Another part of the Aurora HDR 2019 series, this time I edit a jpeg photo from a Google Pixel 2. I hope this shows that you don’t need to just use this software for RAW bracketed files.

The A7iii is the latest full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony and it's their 'entry-level' one. It's a 24.2mp all singing all dancing, 690+ focus points, touch-screen, 4K recording camera.
Priced at £2,000 for a professional camera it's not too expensive, don't get me wrong it's expensive but not compared to D4 iv or D850. Read More

I often get sent new bits of software and most I just dismiss. I'm happy using Lightroom, Aurora and Luminar and between them, they do exactly what I want.
The other day I was asked if I wanted to try a new piece of software that uses AI to edit the photo so that you don't have to do anything. The exposure, colours, etc are all sorted for you. You load a photo and the software does everything for you.
This is called PhotoLemur and I think you'll like it. Read More
The beauty of photography is that everyone has their own tastes, what I like might be different to what other people like.
