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.

ON1 Photo RAW 2017.5 is the lightning fast photo organizer, raw processor, layered photo editor and effects app all-in-one.

Combined with our current set of tools, the next generation of ON1 Photo 10.5, will continue to work where you want, as a standalone app, a plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® & Lightroom®, or a host app for other editing apps.
