Skylum Luminar 2018 overview

  • 1Description

Designed as an all-in-one solution for managing photos, Luminar 2018 from Skylum offers a non-destructive environment for Windows users to organize and edit their images. Enhancements in this version include an updated engine for faster processing of raw image files, a real-time noise reduction tool, and Lookup Table (LUT) support for color management with the option of using built-in presets or loading your own .cube file. A big update is added support for third-party Adobe plugins, which makes Luminar an attractive alternative for those looking to bring in some of their Photoshop functionality. Other additions include a Lens Correction tool for removing distortion and chromatic aberration, and a Transform tool for perspective correction.

Luminar offers a variety of adjustable photo editing filters, with over 40 of them available for enhancing your pictures. New to the 2018 version is a Sun Rays mode that generates scattering beams of light and a Matte filter that simulates a vintage print look, as well as the more traditional Dodge & Burn, Brilliance / Warmth, and Hue Shift options. Further customization can be achieved with advanced masking, which easily blends filters and layers for complete control. If one-click adjustments are your thing, Luminar also offers several presets for adding a flair or mood to your image, with the possibility of saving your own custom presets and sharing them with other users. Finally, never make a mistake again thanks to the unlimited undos provided by the history panel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Windows Version has NO Color Management The Mac version of Luminar 2018 is excellent. The Windows version has potential. However, as of September, 2018, the Windows version has NO color management. Meaning, it's almost impossible to discern the effects of any photo editing changes you make within the app. Hopefully, this will change...
