Luminar for Mac was released in November 2016, with the latest update on July 15, 2017.
In April, only 5 months after its launch, Luminar for Mac won the prestigious TIPA award for Best Imaging Software 2017. For more details about full featured Mac version visit macphun.com/luminar . Experience the public beta of Luminar for Windows today at macphun.com/pc .

Why did we make Luminar?

Today, there are more choices of cameras than ever before, and more ways to enjoy photos. Luminar comes at a time when current software tools are simply not keeping up with the versatility to satisfy the needs of everyone, or they are evolving to be too complicated to learn and use.

As a result, Macphun has invented a new scalable, adaptive user interface and mated it to a set of tools that truly provides ease of editing photos on your PC across the entire span of customers, from beginners to pros.

  •   Newbie photographers who don’t often use their PC for editing will appreciate a simple approach using one-click presets.
  •   Casual photographers mastering their first digital cameras may start with those same presets, but will soon “graduate” to using Luminar’s uniquely tailored tools which achieve great results quickly.
  •   For passionate enthusiasts and professionals, the full gamut of editing tools such as brushes, layers, editing history menu and much more herald a new generation of advanced photo editing possibilities.

Casual shooters, enthusiasts and professional photographers

Several features and improvements in this release are the result of feedback from the ON1 community.” Today, ON1 users can go to the ON1 Photo Project and submit ideas and feature requests. Every submission is reviewed and the more votes each idea or submission gets, the higher the likelihood it will get added into development of the app.

The NIK Photoshop plugin collection’s been a staple in my system for many years. It’s sharpening algorithm, it’s controls have always had a strong place along with all my other plugins, and I’ve made great use of it throughout the years.

A few years ago, Google bought it, and made it FREE! That was great, and they even updated the software a few times. But, on the Mac, they stopped updating past OSX 10.10 Yosemite, on Windows, they stopped updating past Windows 8, and for Photoshop, their last compatible version is with Photoshop 2015.

THANKS GOOGLE, for buying something, ensuring it’s not profitable for you, and leaving us in the lurch…

OR DID THEY? Thank goodness for One1. They’re releasing the version Photo Raw 2017.5 in just a few days. MacPhun is not only excellent on the Mac, but they’re finishing up their first BETA of their Luminar and Aurora HDR software for Windows machine. Both of these have options very much like those offered in NIK, and they’re committed to continuing their development for years to come!

By the way – my FAVORITE software for Up-Rezzing images (when necessary) used to be Genuine Fractals – which is now On1 Perfect Resize – part of their Photo Raw software!

For some time, you’ve been seeing me post about excellent deals on MacPhun’s AuroraHDR 2017 software.

Well, I thought it might be nice if you got a chance to see some of the ease, power and flexibility of the program in a simple demo. Please note – this demo is based on a single image – I don’t have a camera capable of auto-bracketing (taking multiple exposures of a single shot). Here, you’ll see how we can use a preset, AND adjust that preset, and I’ve chosen a realistic look for the final image. In the future, I’ll demonstrate how we can make some more “artistically interpretive” choices, but this, I think, is a good overview.

To get AuroraHDR 2017 plus tutorials and bonuses for a 55% discount, please visit this link prior to April 1st, 2017.
