There are two main thins I like - the easiness to use and the advanced result. As I'm a beginner in photography the usability of the tool is very important to me, presets are also of the big help for a fast and easy to achieve result. And there are also layers - just awesome! I am changing the exact parts of a picture I want, without ruining the rest! Definitely recommend to try!

Pros:

Super cool Sun Rays filter and... well all the other filters too)

Cons:

Waiting for the promised digital asset tool

Amazing software
If photography is your passion never use a preset, even made by you. A photograph is easy to take, the difficulty lays in creating them unique, interesting and intelligent and to accomplish it, the photographer becomes the composer, creating it on camera, and a chief conductor, while developing it and print it. It’s, like in music, where the unique view, style and interpretation of the photographer make a photograph something that shall transcend Instagram and social media, just as in a concert interpretation by a great orchestra lead by a great conductor transcend SoundCloud, YouTube and social media in general. You will never see canned effects or music in a real concert, nor in a real photograph.

Excited about the updates to come!

Pros:

Adaptive UI, tons of controls, powerful RAW engine.

Cons:

Catalogue module.

Love this app, sunrays are cool! really spectacular things can be made with it!

Pros:

RAW support and opening, Sunrays!

Cons:

Price?

The most adaptable, powerful and fun photo editor there is, you can use Luminar 2018 to quickly create stunning photographs. Great for all skill levels, a lengthy list of powerful filters, and an intuitive UI make this a great product.

Pros:

Powerful, flexible, intuitive

Cons:

None

Luminar has forever changed the way I make photos. I used to have difficulty getting the image from my head to the screen. Luminar is so simple, yet so powerful that it no longer is a problem. Edits happen quick and furiously. The muse has never been easier to court. Thank you Team Skylum! You've rocked my creative world!!

Pros:

Intuitive, Infectious, Inspiring, Intelligent, Integral, INGENIOUS!

Cons:

There will always be tweaks here and there. I have both the mac and pc versions and love them both!

I recommend to friends and everyone!

Pros:

Like new features!

Cons:

I liked new features!

It's cool that WINDOWS version!

Luminar is one of the best software I have ever worked with. turns your photos into true images from another world. Simple and intuitive to work with.

Pros:

I like simplicity, and creative functions

Cons:

in the next update, I would like to see an improved picture in the import and organization of the photos.

What's the difference between the current version and the previous one?

Pros:

Speed and simplicity

Cons:

Not much

I'll be conducting a more thorough review in my podcast All Things Photography, but I showed it to my daughter and she already bought herself a copy! That's gotta be a good review right there, because she is not a computer nerdy person (but she is a very good photographer).

Pros:

Easy to use, keeps a clean interface.

Cons:

Big change from how other programs work — not its fault, since it's not trying to be other programs, but something users should be aware of.

I love Luminar 2018 and have lot of fun using it.

Especially now that there is a Windows version available.

Great software for making your photos even more interesting with intuitive and easy to use interface.

Plus, there is a lot of predefined filters so you can use one of them as a start point and tweak them a little bit to get your own version of color correction.

Hope you will enjoy half as much I do!

Pros:

Intuitive, creative, fun!

Cons:

None

It changed completely my workflow and made me save a lot of time. I moved from Nik Color Efex to Luminar and the change was excellent, much more powerful than Nik one.

If you want to see my full review you can check my website: https://www.jorgeciscar.com/revi... (only in spanish, sorry!)

Pros:

Save a lot of time and get te best results

Cons:

Just being a little bit faster and adding some features like HDR and pano stitching

I honestly recommend this up coming product because it works very well and I really don't like to be dependent to one big Adobe system which you doesn't own but monthly pay. In combination with Affinity Photo, for me LUMINAR 2018 is a powerful alternative to Lightroom & Photoshop in the future. I'm very excited about this little revolution in the market :)

Pros:

With passion developed software with a fair price, very interesting tools influenced by the users needs

Cons:

It is not finishedyet, looking forward to the organizing tool, to really get an competitor to Lightroom

Extraordinary photo editing software.

Pros:

It makes me look really good.

Cons:

Not found any yet.

Upgraded to Luminar 2018 and have been really happy. Using it on a Mac. Performance is better than previous version. Great new filters. Most of all, its just the fact that I can get great results faster than with other such programs. I don't have tons of time to edit my photos, so I need to be efficient and effective, and Luminar helps me do exactly that.

Pros:

Great results quickly!

Cons:

Nothing at the moment

Luminar just keeps getting better and this one is no exception! New filters and new tools enable me to use Luminar as a standalone application. I am very happy with how fast and easy Luminar is to use and I can get the professional results that I'm looking for.

Pros:

Wonderful new filters including the capability to use LUTs

Cons:

Waiting for Digital Asset Management solution (which should be next year)

Super product. It’s about to become my go-to editor as soon as the DAM is complete.

Pros:

Easy to use, great results !

Cons:

Still a few issues to iron out

Love editing photos with luminar 2018. I have used some previous editions too, but this one is awesome.

Pros:

Beautiful Photo Editor

Cons:

It is already improved for me.
