Luminar 2018, the newest version of Luminar from Skylum/Macphun, is now available for pre-order for both Mac and Windows users!
I have been using an early beta of Luminar 2018 for the last couple weeks and it is a must-have upgrade if you already have it or purchase if you don’t. I am not going to go into too much detail here today in this blog post, as I have already recorded 5 videos showing you all of the cool new features and what you can do in Luminar 2018! These videos were recorded during a week’s worth of Luminar LIVE broadcasts I did for Skylum/Macphun on Facebook LIVE showing off many of the features of Luminar 2018.
Those videos are at the end of this blog post. But first here is what Skylum/Macphun has to say about the new Luminar 2018
Luminar 2018 offers everything a modern photographer needs for photo editing, including new filters powered by artificial intelligence, major speed improvements, a dedicated RAW develop module and a forthcoming in 2018; digital asset management platform.
Users will also benefit from the new intelligent Sun Rays filter, LUT support, and real-time noise removal. With workspaces that match different styles of editing, Luminar adapts to deliver a complete experience that avoids clutter and complexity.
Luminar 2018 has been re-built from the ground up for dramatic performance boosts. Existing filters deliver richer colors and depth in less time. A brand new streamlined user interface speeds up working with presets, filters, and masks. With full support of pro options like layers, masks, and blending modes, complex repairs and photo composites can be easily accomplished.
