While I actually use this version of Luminar the AI feature is rubbish. It’s no different from hitting the “Auto” correct option in most apps including Mac Photos auto. It just changes exposure settings etc and I have found these to never give a good picture. Mostly it over exposes the image, especially if shooting a darker scene and adds loads of noise and blows out the image and adds artificial colours. Not worth the upgrade

I’m very excited about this. I was about the fork out $69 for MacPhun Luminar as a Mac Photos plug-in. The interface of this looks interesting and a little like Aperture which I just swapped from after it stopped being supported in High Sierra. If this is cheaper and better intergrates then luminar I hope it comes out sooner than later

I agree if people want a smaller screen they could buy an IPhone 5. What happened to the days when phones were compact and easy to carry. The Nokia 8210 is in my opinion the perfect phone ever made in regards to size. Why do we think bigger is better.

brycesteiner: Photos is certainly not for the crowd here. I'm pretty sure it was never intended to be.
Aperture is still available and it still works just fine and has been updated for compatibility with the latest OS.
For you people who love Aperture, you can continue to use it.

I like Aperture for it's speed. It does a good job when I need a lot pictures processed quickly.
I like Lightroom for it's quality. It's incredibly powerful. I don't find it's batch processing as intuitive like I do Aperture. I still use it too.

The moral of the story I have learned from this and other programs (like music software 10-15 years ago) never to trust programs to be around in the future. I still have my own file system and don't use the built in libraries for anything long term.

Actually no it's not available. While the app shows in purchased section I invite you to download. It results in an error message for both aperture and iPhoto. I just tried to re install aperture on my new MacBook and essentially couldn't and ended up having to download I pirated copy.

praktinafan: I still use the boxed version of Aperture (comes on a DVD) and so I can not upgrade to 3.5. This update only works with an AppStore license! Bummer

Once you update to maverick osx the update becomes available for DVD installs. 3.5 is not supported on previous osx versions.

Agreed, companies should came out with a gun compartment for times when someone tries and takes your gear.
