Luminar AI overview

Luminar AI 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.

Worst money I’ve spent on editing software. Very buggy and always connected to Skylum (I don’t like that). Then when I bought a new iMac to replace my old one, discovered that I couldn’t use it because it was registered to the old one!!! Ridiculous!!!! Total waste of time and money.

It appears that Skylum software’s business model is to come out with “totally new products” as opposed to upgrades to the next version. In this way they charge full retail for each “totally new product.” I shelled out for version 4, I won’t for version 5, excuse me, version AI, and whatever they may call each successive “totally new product.” Congratulations. Skylum software came out with something more onerous than the “subscription” business model. Beware and be wary.

Worked straight out of the box. for the mid-2012 MacBook Pro. Great bit of software too bad Apple didn't just allow an automatic upgrade. Many thanks to the people who put in the time and work. P.S. good video as well

I liked the quick editing capabilities and AI filters that allow you to quickly adjust images, but one problem with the workflow is that when I plug in the camera's XDSD card, the images cannot be opened by Luminar directly from the SD card. I need to transfer photos from my SD card to my hard drive in order to edit them with Luminar. Hope they fix it soon.

Check around the web, you can get this 'old' version 4 for around $30. The new Ai update has been out for months, stick with this version. Ai is good if you do instagram.

Luminar Ai has been out since late 2020 now. Its April 2021 now. Go to Skylum's website and thoroughly check out the differences in Ai version and this version 4. There are big differences, some of which you will not like. Looks are now templates, be sure to import from v4 (3 won't work) as you install Ai. They will reside in the 'legacy' folder and you will not see a hierachy therein nor there icons, just a loooong list of yours and import presets. You also CANNOT import your library here. You will have to start from scratch again.....ugh. You however will most likely like the Ai introduced in this new version, its quite amazing. Sticking with LR myself for library purposes and Ai AND 4 for as plugins.
