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