    Mary, I do feel for you.

    I brought Luminar 18 way back and I loved it even though it had loads of unfinished tweaks and crashes.

    Like you I progressed to Luminar 3.. Same scam  c**p  marketing, same c**p performance, but now with baffling gimmick 'extras' no one wanted. Compounded by some weirdo 'Libery' - can't spell. This I assume, inserted to make sure you fall at the last hurdle should you have by some quirk, made it to actually processing a photo.

    I have preordered a copy of Luminar 4.. What a fool I am - if they put one tenth of the money and effort they put in the promotion of this, their next example of non functioning scam nonsense..

    Hi! 

    We're improving Luminar 3 performance with each update.

    Nevertheless, it might depend on several factors such as your hardware configuration, Library size and images format (it can take a bit more time to load RAW/TIFF/DNG files and generate the previews).

    Of course it depends on several factors. The biggest one (99%) is how luminar 3 is written as a software. 

    I've ran Luminar 3 on i7 8th gen, 32gb ram, 1tb ssd and I have to wait for each photo to load for 6 seconds before I can start doing any edits. It's painfully slow if I plan to edit more than 10 photos. When I used i5 8gb machine I had to wait ~9-10 seconds. Not sure if I could find on earth a PC which would load photos for editing in luminar in 1 second, which is easily achieved in all other software :) 

    I wish skylum all the best, but please stop with these PR stuff and get to the point. I'll check out luminar 4 in that matter (if there'll be any trial version), if it's still the same then software will be unusable as a everyday photo tool.
