No trial for Luminar AI?

Seems odd, every other app I've been interested in allows a potential buyer to trial first.

Yeah, even Luminar 4 has a trial. Interesting...

They really don't want you to see how bad it sucks, and it does......

I was an early purchaser ... expecting something special.

Loaded it a couple days ago ... sigh ... disappointed.

No trial for Luminar AI - not true

But there is! Simple google:  LUMINAR Ai and you'll get several hits.  here is a screen shot showing 30-day money back trial.  Easiest is to call the Toll-Free phone number who will send you direct link for FREE trial.   Be sure to keep DETAILED record.

That's not a free thirty day trial in the usually accepted sense though . . .

In fact; if I was considering using this software (actually, having used Luminar 4, I won't be touching it with a bargepole) the lack of a decent trial would have made my mind up.

I should have thought of that. I bought it and immediately asked for refund. Still waiting for a reply.

What do you not understand about calling for a direct link? - n.t.

They had a a noise AI plug-in a few years ago. $100 and no trial period either.

A wonderful conclusion.

Look at the "Official comment" by Helena Carter (second comment in the thread) with a link to the online installer (OS dependent) here:

https://community.skylum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360010156420-Is-there-no-TRIAL-for-download-now-for-Luminar-AI-

You'll get a 7 days trial.

I think it's partially that and partially they don't want L4 users to see they don't have much extra. You have to wait until v2. And we know how that works at Skylum.

Re: No trial for Luminar AI?

They are horrible.    Luminar 4 which I purchased a year ago will not work with my new laptop because their graphics coding is not playing well with the latest Intel Processor with integrated graphics.    They know they have a problem as per user support forum.  I figured I'd try AI  to see if it works (maybe even pay for it if it does) but no way to get a free trial.   
I have zero confidence in them and will not pay with a so called "money back guarantee" I do like sky replacement, more than what;s in the latest photoshop.  But the bugs in Luminar from day one have been a time waster
