Some time ago, I bought Luminar and am pleased with it.
A couple of days ago, I downloaded the latest version -- Luminar 3.1.1 -- and it definitely boots faster ... noticeably faster, even with my ancient Dell workstation that is running Win10 with only 4 gigs memory.
The site "Giveaway of the Day" posts a link (nearly) daily with software deals. This this will be automatically updated with the current deal as they are posted! 👍
I noticed something while comparing final images from LR Classic, C1, and Luminar 3. The file sizes were different from each editor. The LR file being the smallest around 12mb. C1 around 22mb. And Luminar 3 at 30mb. All were edited as closely as possible, using the same color profile at output.
An interesting article over at Wired about how the team at VSCO go about creating their film filters for their apps.
It's a short article but something that I had not really thought about before and, after reading that, I'm not sure if I...
If you're still using Apple's Aperture on your MacOS machines, even though Apple discontinued updating it back in 2014, you'll be facing an upgrade decision. MacOS Mojave will be the last version of the OS that will support running Aperture "for technical reasons". Apple's suggestion is to...
Shot this today at Peebles Island: crow waaaaaay up in a tree and heavily backlit.
So I ran it through DXO 11's backlighting correction:
then sky enhancement from Luminar 3:
I think I like the result.
Disclaimer; I've been on a JPG only workflow since moving to Fuji XF several years ago. I do take RAW back-ups for critical shots, but oftentimes they're just insurance, I've yet to really use them.
I can upload my photos using a USB-C reader and they can be copied to the local file system and...

Lumariver Profile Designer is camera calibration software. It produces Camera Profiles for Lightroom and Photoshop, or ICC Profiles for Capture One and other image editing software that use them. I use it to make Camera Profiles for Lightroom.

Just downloaded Luminar for Windows beta from here: Luminar for Windows (beta) is live! Try it free today.
So far, I find it is pretty interesting.
With a couple of clicks, I was able to go from here:
The interface is a little like dealing with a mime -- little pictures and...
I've been taking photos for over 20 years and when digital came, I slowly embraced it and realized its potential.
The thing is, I have never gotten into shooting in RAW or editing of any kind (I just stuck with JPEG and got some good results so never got round to the more complex...
Is anyone using Affinity Photo? At the moment it's only available for Mac but there is supposedly a Windows Beta arriving later this year. I'm curious if anyone is using it and, if so, what they think of it.
After a post about focusing, I came in front a problem of "precise" focusing. Idea is, if possible, to view on comp. the same image, in real time, as on cam. This way the focusing should be easier, convenient. Is it possible, does something like this exist?
