  • Excellent. Glad to hear this is being addressed.
  • Yep, I have the same behavior. Someone else pointed out that the scale is relative to the size of the window, not the resolution of the image. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature. In my mind, ...
  • Very nice. I'll have to try one of my flower images next.
  • I've used ON1 for a year side by side with LR and have finally abandoned it due to poor tonal mappings,  unpredictable develop sliders, really poor highlight recovery, and lousy noise reduction.  ...
  • I concur with all these comments. I'm having fun learning what it can do.  Lot's of missing items, compared to the Mac version but especially compared to LR.  Nevertheless, this feels like a ...
  • Created discussion thread Luminar 2018 Before & After Images
    I continue to play around with Luminar 2018 and am increasingly excited about it. I thought it might be interesting to begin a thread with before and after images to highlight what the product is ...

    So that's what it is doing! I couldn't figure out why the percentage scale was messed up... Your explanation makes perfect sense... But like you said, not at all useful! And I agree that it's a ...

    I agree.  I love the filters concept.  I also like layers though I do find the layer mask functionality a bit confusing: (1) There doesn't seem to be a way to modify an existing mask (for example, ...

    That's an interesting comment; and I think I agree when it comes to the development features.  But there are a few more deficiencies vis-a-vis LR.  First off, I'd break out File Mgmt into a few areas:

    Well, that's a key question.  I don't know how many developers they have, but if their support team currently has 6 people in it, then I'd guess their development team is several times that ...
  • Replied in Luminar 2018
    Actually, given their broad target market and significant amount of incomplete functionality, 3000 emails per day is not surprising.  Most of those 3000 emails represent duplicate reports of ...
  • Replied in Luminar 2018
    I agree with your comments about getting good results in a reasonable amount of time even in spite of the slower overall performance relative to LR.  I also agree that it is not a ...
  • Replied in Luminar 2018
    I've been using Luminar for a few days on a self-built Win10 system (i5-6600K; 16GB RAM; SSD; Nvidia 750Ti graphics card).  I've found the program to be relatively stable and working well with the ...
  • Replied in Luminar 2018
    I had the same problem. Had to contact support and send them my email receipt. They've sent a download link but I haven't had time to install it yet.
  • I'm ok with some missing functionality, depending on what is missing of course, but I want the core features regarding raw development to be available, robust, fast, and with high quality. Software ...
  • I pre-ordered yesterday. I agree that the lack of a trial is disconcerting, especially since I did the same thing with on1raw and ended up being disappointed with the rendering engine. But I've ...
  • Thanks for the info Mario! So, "visual proxy" in conjunction with "versioning" seem to do what I desire nicely. Does IMatch handle sidecar files in any way?  Are they somehow handled via file ...
  • Created discussion thread Question re: iMatch and Photo Mechanic
    I'm used to working with programs that have an integrated DAM and editor, such as LR and On1Raw. Do programs that are standalone DAM/organizers, such as iMatch and Photo Mechanic, provide a way to ...
  • I found that Luminar has tremendous control. I recommend you give it another try. Don't be fools by the Presets. They are just a starting point, and one that you do not need to use.

    The real...

  • I've used the Win beta of Luminar and am very impressed. It has a lot of missing functionality relative to the Mac version, but what is there works well. The Win beta is really more of an alpha,...
