Luminar 3 has some good qualities and it is a new program. I will give Skylum time to work things out. In fact, I purchased Luminar 4 in hopes of an even better product. However, I have had issues with trying to import photos into the Luminar 3 program. Photos are in files in Apple Finder but do not appear in Luminar; photos upload but I have no idea where they uploaded to; photos appear, in part, in Recently Added, but not in any folder. Evidently, I lost about 300 photos in my latest attempt to import photos into Luminar and the compact flash disk was erased in the process. Those missing 300 photos are gone permanently.
It should not be this hard to import photos into a DAM. It should be a simple process. A click of a button, in fact. Hence, my question: Is Luminar 4 going to have a stable, simple photo import feature? If not, I will forego the wait, cut my losses in investment with Skylum, and spend the extra money to stay with Adobe Lightroom.
I do not mean to be condescending. I know it takes a lot of work to create a complicated program like a DAM. However, before showing off upcoming new features such as adding clouds to photos, I would be more comfortable in knowing that a basic feature like importing photos into Luminar will be stable, simple, and reliable. Nothing else matters if photos cannot be imported.
If I have misstated anything or offended, I do apologize.
