Luminar 4.3: Better performance and extra convenience
We’ve been working hard to bring you the best version of Luminar 4 to date. Take a look at what’s new in the 4.3 update.
FEATURES & IMPROVEMENTS
NEW Search tool
Located in the top menu bar in the Gallery view, Luminar’s Search tool allows you to effortlessly find images in your library and accelerates your editing workflow. Quickly and easily find images by name, folder, date, or extension for straightforward library management.
Raw files now open faster (depending on your computer’s specifications), and all tools including AI Augmented Sky have been greatly optimized to work twice as fast – or three times as fast in the case of Accent AI.* As a result of decreased memory use, sliders are more responsive and there’s less lag when using multiple tools.
* Note: Speed improvements depend on computer hardware.
In the Export menu there’s now an option to share your photos to the global 500px online photo sharing community. Conveniently add a title, description, and keywords – and even mark NSFW content – prior to uploading.
AI Augmented Sky improvements
If you want to deliver a cosmic feel to your photographs, check out the new Space Shuttle 1 object. Also, you can now easily flip and position sky objects.
Instant Looks previews
Just hover your mouse over a Look to see a live preview. You can also quickly return a photo to its unedited state with the new Reset Adjustments button.
