I’ve processed quite a number of photos in Skylum’s Luminar 3 since its launch earlier this month. During this time I’ve discovered a few things that help me get the results I want, that I wasn’t doing in Lightroom.
I should have posted something earlier about these, but here you go. Through the wonderful folk behind Essential Apple, I have been fortunate enough to obtain a free license to review Aurora HDR 2019, and also to participate in the beta of the recently released Luminar 3 (with libraries).
I know a lot of people use their phone as their main camera these days, and this tip will be of no use to those people, but some of us still enjoy the power and flexibility of a dedicated photographic device (OK, a “camera”) and don’t mind that, somewhat like the days of film, we have to wait to see our results. This tip makes the step of ingesting the photos off your memory card to your Mac just that bit more frictionless.
I have over 5,000 photos on Flickr that I have amassed over 13 years. Here’s my story of why I’m happy to start paying a new subscription to keep them there.
