Luminar: Step by Step

Creating a book is a funny thing. I go in with an outline and a plan, but inevitably I discover that I can expand it, grow it, and make what was originally going to be a fairly straightforward book about software into nearly 250 meaty pages of delicious Luminar content. As I write, I come up with more ideas, robust examples, and so much showing the “how” and “why” to do something.

This book, Luminar: Step by Step, is the first of its kind about this software. You’ll learn how to master the workspace, understand the tools (and how to use them), as well as an read entire chapter on recommendations for filters to use to create certain looks. I put a lot into this book, and can say with certainty that if you’ve been looking for a feature-filled book about Luminar, then this is THE book to get.

If you’d like to buy the eBook, you can find it in my online store. I will have a print version as well and should have it released within the next few months. If you’d like to stay in the loop, please subscribe to my newsletter.

Book Description

Then, the remaining chapters shows several start-to-finish processing examples of images, and includes the full-size raw files for you to download and follow along on your own computer.

    Your book seems fantastic but will it be updated along with the new coming features like DAM?

      Hi Luc! Skylum has said that the DAM will be released “later this year”, and also that it is in the development stage and they do not have an ETA for it yet. When it is released I will likely send out a video update to all eBook customers to share the new features and give an overview on how it works. If it takes longer than expected then it might make it into a new eBook or video training series next year. I can’t really plan my software training too far in advance because I am limited by the release schedule of the software I’m writing about.
