Aurora Photo Edit Giveaway-10 Winners

I take hundreds of pictures almost every week. I hate when I take a picture if I forgot to do something like change the ISO. The lighting with those pictures is always wrong. Some of those would be amazing if the lighting was different.

With Aurora, I can now use those pictures. Aurora is a desktop software for PCs(a Mac version is coming soon) that mimics the ability of the human eye to process images. Within minutes, you can have the dark picture that you took look more like what you saw in real life.

This is a side by side comparison from Aurora demonstrating what is possible with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Photobucket
This is what your screen will look like. The original picture will be at the bottom center and then you have options at the top to make your photo lighter or darker.
Photobucket

Once you've decided which lighting looks the best, you just hit save. It does NOT overwrite your original picture. It uses your same file name with _au at the end. I used an editing software once that would save over my original picture if I didn't change the name. Aurora does it for you.

Aurora also offers an online backup storage that will keep 20 GB of photos safe for you online. This service is only $4.95 and your pictures will be kept safely in case anything were to happen. If you don't have a safe place for your priceless photos, this is a great deal!

I would recommend Aurora to anyone that takes pictures! All I have to do is bring it up and my pictures are on the screen ready to edit. Like I said, I do have tens of thousands of pictures so it does sometimes take a minute to bring up all of the pictures in a file, but it is only a minute.

Here is an example with one of my pictures. This was at my son's 1st birthday and this picture was way too dark. You can see for yourself the difference that Aurora makes!
PhotobucketPhotobucket

You can also change your photo to black and white, change the color strength, fix red eye, change the crispness, and the color warmth. With Aurora, you can take those pictures that you thought you'd never use and edit them to have forever!

Buy It!
Aurora is available for download on PCs(a Mac version is coming soon) for $19.95!

It says you can reduce red eye in a simple way! That would be awesome. It never fails that in every picture someone has red eye.

I love this:Aurora's pop-up image selector lets you see your photos edited in a range of different ways; lighter to darker; softer to crisper; cooler to warmer—you get the picture—and lets you pick exactly the way you want your photo to look.

On my current photo editor I lose track of what I'm doing and what the original looked like. Love this feature!

I have been taking several pictures of my son a week. Now I am so afraid that I might lose my data due to theft or hard drive failure.

I looked a way to backup my files and the best thing to do is to use an online backup service. This website has a list of recommended online backup service providers:

Besides being able to add crispness, which is something my pictures always seem to lack, I think instantly being able to add light would be amazing. (It was really fun to play with that with the pictures at the top.)

I was happy to learn that Aurora brings out the best of my photos. I have pictures from my daughter's Baptism that I was sad to see later were too dark and not of good quality to keepsake this precious day. I see that light can brighten my favorite picture and it can be suitable for framing after all!!! Gotta get this. Blessings, Stefanie Hartman fhartman@frontiernet.net
