So, since the advent of Luminar Beta in 2016, users have been asking for many workflow basics such as export options (save to original folder etc) and the hard working support team have been faithfully passing these on to the devs for consideration in future updates.
After waiting for this in several updates: Luminar Pluto, Luminar Neptune, Luminar 2018 and Luminar 3 (decided to give Luminar 4 a miss but it appears they didn't get round to add this there either), I decided to write a little script to handle this issue myself by leveraging the capability to spin up daemons in Macs.
The daemon runs a bash script that watches a folder and whenever certain files types are saved into that folder, it figures out their original folder from their name and moves them there. Depending on settings in the script, it can rename the file, create a subfolder and give options to overwrite or keep conflicting files in the destination.
I prefer Luminar 2018 but should work for all versions of Luminar including the current Luminar 4 (Not tested on Luminar 4 which I don't use obviously).
There are basically two files. One is a script file and the other is a Mac LaunchAgent plist file.

## PRO TIP ##
Open Finder and drag your "Pictures/LuminarExportHandler" folder to the "Favourites" section in the sidebar. You will then have this always available in the Luminar Export/Saving dialogue.
