I have now done some editing – see the before and after comparison photo above.
The first thing I wanted to do was created my own workspace. The existing ones are all good, but I wanted to be able to follow a workflow similar to what I use on Lightroom. I have created that I think I will use on most photos.
It is very easy to add filters that you want to work with, and to delete the ones you don’t.
The thing I love most about Luminar is the Before/After slider. It allows you to closely compare small details (100% magnification is good). Be sure to collapse the workspace column so you can see all of your image.
I have found several areas where the windows version is a not the same as the Mac (I use windows software):
There is no eyedropper for white balance adjustment,
Holding the ‘Alt’ key doesn’t work for setting white and black points.
The J key also doesn’t work for selecting the clipping indicators.
There could be more that I haven’t discovered yet.
Future updates will probably address these.
So far I am very impressed with the software, and will definitely be continuing to use it.
I am currently preparing my photo calendar for the coming financial year, so lots of practice opportunities.
