    Good one Skylum. The keyboard shortcuts I've complained about for ages (Show/Hide clipping and Undo/Redo) in the Windows version finally works!

    Thank you.

    Confused about this update as when I check for updates I am apparently on Luminar 3 3.1.3 (3920), so 3.2 seems a retrograde step.

    Can you explain what is going on?

    Also sending me a link to Luminar 4 support does little to make me think Skylum is actually concerned about Luminar 3 users.

    @Greg Laver: Version 3.1.3 is a lower (older) version than 3.2.

    It has been a very long day and my brain is obviously frazzled by numbers!!

    Please accept my apologies for confusing all and sundry.

    However my version still says it is the latest version available so how do I update it?

    When is it going to utilize a discrete GPU? It's been years since people have complained about this!

    It's been almost two months now. Will Flex ever be updated? You should give refunds to those who bought it thinking it would keep feature parity with Luminar 3.

    Alex , at this time all of Luminar versions currently available rely more on CPU and RAM and makes no use of GPU acceleration. We hope to change that in the future.  

    If you're on Windows, you can, however, configure Luminar to run with your discrete card. 

    Try to right-click on a Luminar icon -> Run with Graphics Processor -> Your dedicated graphics card.

    See the screenshot: http://prntscr.com/kgyi9m

    Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel and choose NVIDIA Control Panel. Go to "Manage 3D settings" and make sure you choose the High-performance NVIDIA graphics processor.

    If your card is AMD, here's a video instruction for you: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gnod9pab20q0qgi/Switch%20to%20discrete%20graphic.mp4?dl=0 

     

    Riley, we have no ETA for Luminar Flex update for now.  Please contact us at https://skylum.com/support so that we could figure something out for you.

    Kate Williams I've had Luminar running on my dedicated graphics card as far as I can remember. It does absolutely nothing to improve the performance. 

    How far is "in the future"? 3 days from now? 3 years? 3 decades? I've had some version of Luminar since late 2017, and it has suffered the same performance issues since then. I think your users deserve some kind of timeline update or reassurance that our issues regarding GPU utilization are directly being addressed. The common response from Luminar that you're "constantly improving Luminar with each update" is vague and useless.

    I have recently acquired v3 of Luminar and had hoped to try it out and compare against Lightroom 6 which I've used until now.  I don't want to go the Adobe subscription route in the future.  However, I have come here because I have just tried to work with some files taken on my G1X MkII (.CR2) and they do not work.  I downloaded the Windows v3.2 version from the link above which says this issue has now been fixed.  I ran it as a repair, same problem. I removed all photos from the catalogue, completely uninstalled/reinstalled.  The vignetting is still there.  At the moment, given all the issues I can see with v4.3, I'm not tempted to bite the bullet and go for that either.  Anyone else actually got their CR2 files working in v3?

    Hi Helga,

    I've uploaded some images here: https://we.tl/t-ZhwdGjhrgb

    I have a number of .CR2 files, from different Canon cameras, so I've done a bit of research and imported some from each camera into Luminar 3.  It's only the ones taken with my Powershot G1X MkII that have the vignetting/fisheye effect though. 

    I tried looking at the aperture/lens settings.  Generally, wider aperture/lens at the wider end of the range produces a more pronounced fisheye and sharper vignetting.  

    I hope this is something that can be fixed.  I've not delved too much into Luminar, but I'm quite impressed with what I can see it does so far, and a genuine alternative to the dreaded Adobe subscription.
