I have recently purchased Luminar 4 but it is horrifically slow and consequently freezes. I am only trying to remove a few blemishes and marks from old black and white photos using the clone and erase tools but the software goes into processing mode that takes up to 10 minutes just to erase one mark. It freezes regularly and I have uninstalled/reinstalled the software and have had to reboot my laptop on numerous occasions when I cannot get out of the frozen Luminar screen. I have been trying to clean up one black and white photo which so far has taken me over 5 hours of failed attempts, uninstalls, pc reboots etc and the photo is still not complete which should have taken no more than 5 minutes.
My laptop and its spec substantially exceeds the requirements of the software and I use numerous other programmes with no problem whatsoever. The fault lies with the Luminar software and having read numerous posts from other users it is clear there is a fundamental flaw with Luminar 4.
I am very disappointed with this software and feel I now need to get a refund and start again with another alternative software programme, it cost me £54 to purchase and I basically cannot use it.
