Hi Product Hunters! 😻 Today we are launching a free public beta of Luminar for Windows. Being a successful Mac-Only software company for years, we are now expanding on to PC platform. And this is exciting! Macphun photo software received “Editors’ Choice” and "Best of the Year" awards from Apple for 5 straight years. TIPA has named Luminar for Mac "2017 Best Imaging Software". SO, WHAT IS LUMINAR? Luminar is the smart photo editor that is powerful enough to replace Photoshop and Lightroom for 90% of photo professionals and hobbyists. It adapts to your style and skill level. And brings supercharged tool like layers, masks, presets, smart photo filters powered by Artificial Intelligence and more. Some highlights of Luminar beta for PC: - Accent Filter powered by the Artificial Intelligence. One slider to make all your photos great! - Adaptive user interface. Think of Luminar as the collection of LEGO bricks - you put different elements together so it fits your preferences and skill level. - One-click presets – Over 50 default styles for instant results. - Photo Filters – Dozens of custom filters, each with built-in visual tips and a unique set of easy-to-use controls for correcting, enhancing and stylizing images. - Powerful layers with blending modes that don't bring the Photoshop complexity and confusion. PLUS: native non-destructive editing, object removal, brushes for selective editing and many other cool tools. Recommended System Requirements – Windows 10, Core i5 2.2 or better, 8GB RAM, 1GB GPU RAM, SSD with 20+GB free space. This is just the beginning of the Luminar (and Macphun's) story on PC. I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback and thanks for helping us to make this software the best it can possibly be. Alex

@alex_tsepko The landing looks nice, but why should I get it? Is it different from any other image editor?
Alex TsepkoMaker@alex_tsepko · COO at Macphun
@nazarpanchyshyn 3 points (out of many): - No Photoshop complexity - More editing powers than Lightroom - The first PC photo editor powered by Artificial Intelligence

Good luck with the Windows beta @alex_tsepko. I've been using the Mac version since launch last year and it has gradually taken over more and more of the tasks that I would typically have done in Lightroom. In fact, there are days when Lightroom seems little more than a very bloated media browser. So, does Macphun have any plans to complete the loop and bring out a media cataloger/browser as well?
Alex TsepkoMaker@alex_tsepko · COO at Macphun
@frassmith Great question. The short answer is YES. And here are some details: we envision Luminar as the only place you go to host, organize and make your photos look great. So the catalogue (DAM) is in the works. We really want to make it right, so it takes some time. Truth to be told - Lightroom has a lot of great tools and features, so it is not easy to invent something that people will switch for:) We will keep you updated - it's coming.
