Learning Luminar

Luminar 2018

with Nicole S. Young

Attention Windows Users:

The new version of Luminar 2018 is the first iteration to be available on both Mac and Windows. Because it is newly-developed for Windows not all of the features made it into the software at the time of release. However, the software is being updated incrementally and will soon have feature parity (be identical) with the Mac version.

To make it easy for Windows users to visualize the differences—particularly when watching Mac-platform education content, like with the course lesson below—I put together this visual comparison guide:


Lesson 01:

“The User Interface”

If you are using Luminar for the first time, or if it’s been a while since you opened the software, then Lesson 01 is just for you! In this video, I go “back to basics” and take you through the user interface to help you become familiarized with the application.

In this lesson I’ll walk through the user interface and will show you:

  • How to open a photo into Luminar
  • Explain each of the buttons and functions on the top bar and what they do
  • Show some of the features in the Filters panel
