Seriously, I hate all of this complaining I'm doing, but this software is seriously the worst experience ever.
But, here we are; even more issues to pile on to all the other problems. When I first installed Luminar 4, even though it ran incredibly slow, ate up all my system resources, and closed itself randomly, at least I was getting some decent results after grinding through an entire edit. The portrait enhancer was a big reason for buying this application, and it really was doing a great job, as long as I was very patient.
Suddenly, I noticed a few days ago, portrait enhancer just decided to stop working! Nothing has changed. Obviously no updates were downloaded that could have broken it, since the much talked about update still isn't available in the U.S. So, what gives? Why has Luminar 4 suddenlycan't figure out what a human face looks like? I've tried it on raw files from a Sony a600, a Nikon D810, and a Nikon D850. I tried on photos with 1 person. Tried it on photos with 2 people. I tried it with pictures that had busy background and pictures with totally blank backgrounds. No matter what, L4 will no longer change a single thing when using the portrait enhancer tool.
I am so fed up with this. I regret this purchase, and I especially regret letting my Adobe CC subscription lapse. I now have nothing to edit with.
