    This software is hands down the worst app I have ever worked with. It crashed every few seconds and most of the work would be just gone. Absolute disaster

    Dear Member,

    I am sorry to hear about the issue you are experiencing.

    We kindly ask you to email us via https://skylum.com/support - our techs will gladly help you fix this.

    It would also be very helpful if you could provide our team with the error logs:

    1. Reproduce the issue.
    2. Press the Windows logo key + R.
    3. Type eventvwr in the dialog box that opens and hit Enter on your keyboard.
    4. In the window that opens click the triangle next to Windows Logs on the left. A directory tree should open.
    5. Click Application in the directory tree. 
    6. In the main part of the window find the two topmost entries marked with Error named Application Error and .NET Runtime.
    7. Hold CTRL and click your left mouse button on each entry to select them both.
    8. Right-click on any of the two selected entries and click Save Selected Events.
    9. Name the file, save it, and attach it to your support request.

    anyone have any suggestions on performance improvement - Luminar AI is driving crazy! I have imported approx 200 photos for a job I concluded over the weekend.  When I move from one to the next, it is taking forever to render the photo to edit - about every other photo, it locks up and I end up "force quit" the app and starting over.  This has been going on for 3 days - I am running a brand new Mac M1 with 16 gb ram, fresh memory and I have installed the specific M1 version - I don't want to deal with the generic "contact customer support" response to never get a response and just be lumped in with the apparent multitude of users experiencing similar issues.

    Hi Greg,

    Sorry to hear that you have issues with the performance!

    It would help us a lot if you could clarify some additional details: 

    1. How much free space do you have on your drive?

    2. Where are your photos located? (internal, external drive)

    3. How many images are there in your Library?

    Please reach out to our support team at support@skylum.com and they'll see how the situation with the performance can be improved in your particular case. Thanks!

    I like Luminar AI a lot, but the fact that it still crashes in conjunction with Sky AI and changes after inserting a new sky really sucks! I even bought a new gaming computer so that Luminar would run smoothly. Skylum please fix this bug asap.

    Hi Michael, - I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience faced! It seems to be a known issue. Recently, our techs have detected a memory leak after using Sky AI which may cause the app to slow down or even crash after it was used. They're working on a fix right now. Hope for your understanding.

    Solved the problem on a MacBook Pro. Tried to edit a JPG and this resulted in Luminar AI continually crashing even after trying to open a Cannon RAW CR2 file. Solved the problem by deleting the Cache file and all history logs. Not going to try an edit a JPG again. Will stick to RAW.

    As soon as I open the program and upload my catalog it crashes. I can barely make one edit before it crashes. I need a solution asap!

    Hey Luminar support can you advise how we arrange a refund please? Facing the same problem as the other people here, only purchased a couple of days ago and shocked that this issue appears to be known and unfixed for at least 7 months judging by this thread. Disappointed as the software is very useful when it works, but not worth waiting 10 minutes for the program to respond after every edit. Cheers
