MacPhun Luminar 2018 - Pre-order

As mentioned in a previous post, we've never really used MacPhun products in the past as we use both Mac & PC and their products were only for the Mac. But recently they have released both Luminar and Aurora (HDR software) for PC which really peaked our interest. In fact, the company has shifted their direction to the point that they have just announced that they have rebranded from MacPhun to Skylum to remove the emphasis that they only make products for Mac users. To pre-order your copy click here.

On the 1st of November 2017, they are launching their updated version of Luminar called Luminar 2018 which looks amazing. We have been using the software for a while now and have found that it is one of the easiest photo editing/image enhancement apps available. In 2018 they will also be adding Asset Management to the app (simply put this means there will be a Browse module of sorts to manage your images in the application) 

The Top 10 Features of Luminar 2018 are -
  • Scalable, adaptive user interface with custom workspaces
  • Raw file conversion & non-destructive editing
  • Over 100 one-click presets
  • Over 40 image enhancement filters
  • Stackable layers with brushes and an advanced layer masking system
  • History panel with multiple undo's and exportable history for resumable editing
  • Real-time noise reduction
  • Object removal and clone & stamp (available for Mac, coming soon to PC)
  • Operates as a standalone or plug-in
  • Complete digital asset manager with support for Lightroom catalogs (coming in 2018)
