Powerful, adaptive, configurable image editing.

Overview

Luminar is the new full-featured image editor that adapts to the way you edit photos. Over 300 essential tools to fix, edit, and enhance your photos with comfort. The future of photo editing is here.

Features:
  • Adaptive Interface Inspires You Do to More - While other photo editors make you adapt to their interface, Luminar adapts to your skill level. There is no need to face dozens of sliders if you simply want to remove an object from an image or apply a preset. But if you do need to perform some serious tasks, you can easily access all the advanced features.
  • Powerful Tools Allow You to Do More - Luminar lets you remove unwanted objects, color casts and digital noise. It helps you retouch skin and reveals the hidden details in your photos. It features layers with blend modes, texture overlays and powerful image masking. Easily edit upper and lower sections of the image without having to make any selections. And so much more!
  • State-of-the-Art Darkroom You Design Yourself - The workspaces in Luminar reveal only the most essential photo filters for a specific type of photo. Enjoy default workspaces and effects for landscape, portrait, street and B-and-W images. Or create your own, based on your preferences.
  • New Approach to Pro Photo Editing - Luminar combines all kinds of pro-level photo effects and tools in one package. It brings layers, luminosity masks, radial and gradient masking, histogram, blend modes, brushes for selective editing, color mixer, split toning and a lot more.

What's new in Luminar

Version 4.3.0:

Note: The downloadable file is an installer that will install the product when opened.

New Search tool

Located in the top menu bar in the Gallery view, Luminar's Search tool allows you to effortlessly find images in your library and accelerates your editing workflow. Quickly and easily find images by name, folder, date, or extension for straightforward library management.

Performance improvements

Raw files now open faster (depending on your computer's specifications), and all tools including AI Augmented Sky have been greatly optimized to work twice as fast - or three times as fast in the case of Accent AI.* As a result of decreased memory use, sliders are more responsive and there's less lag when using multiple tools.

* Note: Speed improvements depend on computer hardware.

500px integration

In the Export menu there's now an option to share your photos to the global 500px online photo sharing community. Conveniently add a title, description, and keywords - and even mark NSFW content - prior to uploading.

AI Augmented Sky improvements

If you want to deliver a cosmic feel to your photographs, check out the new Space Shuttle 1 object. Also, you can now easily flip and position sky objects.

Instant Looks previews

Just hover your mouse over a Look to see a live preview. You can also quickly return a photo to its unedited state with the new Reset Adjustments button.

Version: 3.1.2

Most helpful

When they rolled out Luminar 3 around the beginning of the year, it was slow and buggy. The last couple of updates to 3.1.2 seem to have solved some of these problems, but they've made no progress on their promises from 2018 that Luminar 3 would support DAM (digital asset management) and allow users to add metadata to images, which is fundamental if you want to be able to find them again. So, I was surprised to get an e-mail with a time-limited offer to pre-order Luminar 4. They haven't even delivered on the promises made before the previous version and they're rolling out a new version. It sounds like a company in over its head saying, "We know we promised metadata entry, but that's boring. Look! We have a new program where you can replace the sky in your photos! All you have to do is pay us $50." This kind of behaviour sets off alarms because it's often followed by announcements such as, "We know we promised to implement DAM and metadata entry, but it was harder than we thought, so we've decided to focus our efforts on making Luminar 4 the best software ever. All you need to do is pay us $50 and you can join us on this exciting journey." If you haven't bought it, I'd advise hanging on to your money until they figure out what they're doing.

Let me introduce you to Luminar 4. It is so far superior to Luminar 3 that it is starling. Here's a prime example…Luminar 3 would periodically become unstable or even crash when Batch Processing too many pieces (Over 60). Luminar 4 was just able to resize and run the AI filter simultaneously on 280 pieces with no effort at all! The process was very quick and I was able to run Quark at the same time along with Mail and Safari being active in the background with no hesitation or complaint. If you currently have Luminar 3 when you install 4 it will appropriate the Luminar 3 Library, Folders etc with no disruption or alteration. All of 3's functions remain undisturbed. You will not have to reinstall the brushes into 4 as the brushes in 3 are immediately available to you. DO NOT buy from the App Store because it will be sandboxed which will decrease the flexibility and eventually cause a host of other problems. Finally the Support people are simply amazing.
