Luminar is a powerful photography editing software by Skylum Software (formerly "Macphun") that allows you to stylize, layer, mask, crop, retouch, and easily enhance your photos. It is created to be a one-stop photo editor, but can also be used as a plugin from Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Aperture.

Question: Do I need Luminar to use this course?

Answer: Yes! If you do not already own Luminar, then you will want to download it using the link below.

Bonus tip: Macphun also offers a free 14–day free trial for their software, so you don't need to own it to learn with this course. Wait until the course begins, and then download the free trial using the link I will send in your email.

Question: Is Luminar available on both Mac and PC?

Answer: Yes! This new version of Luminar is the first to be available on both Mac and Windows.

Question: What skill level is this course created for?

Answer: This course is for all users of Luminar, both beginners and advanced alike. While some of the content will be better suited for photographers who are new to Luminar, experienced users might also find the content informative. As an advanced photographer myself, I always find that I learn something, even if the content is familiar. Plus, it's a free course, so what do you have to lose!

Question: How do I register for the course? And, how does it work?

Answer: To access this course you must first register using the form on this website. Once the course begins you will receive emails each time I have a new lesson released. The emails will link you to a page on my website where you can watch the video tutorial and download any supplemental materials that may be offered with that lesson (practice files and presets).

Question: What will I learn in this course?

Answer: Luminar has many things to offer, and I plan on covering a wide variety of content. I will begin with the user interface, and will go on to discuss working with presets, filters, workspaces, layers & blending, masking, and more.

Question: Can I download the videos from the course?

Answer: Yes! When each video is released, you will be directed to a page on my website where you can view and download the video file. At the end of the course you will have access to all past training videos and files as well.

Question: When does the course begin?

Answer: As soon as you register you will receive an email confirming that you have enrolled, along with some information about the course. The lessons will begin mid-December.
