I purchased Luminar more than a year ago with the promise that the DAM would follow shortly thereafter. I purchased Aurora HDR 2018, and later I purchased The Creative Kit. It appears that the DAM is not coming anytime soon, and the Creative Kit is no longer getting updates. I was forced to use the software on my MacBook, as the Windows 10 version is weak at best. Months ago while awaiting the DAM, I decided to try ON1 Photo Raw 2018. That program works great on both Mac and Windows, and has HDR, Resize, and Pana built in. The DAM it provides is excellent, the the masking capibilites blow Skylum products away. It is more expensive then Luminar, but much cheaper than I paid for Luminar and Aurora combined, and has a great HDR module free included. Luminar is going up in price with the release of the DAM, so the price will be near ON1. Thank you Skylum for the time which I wasted on your product. If you were in my state (RI) I could probably get my money back by the lemon law, since the Windows Version is incomplete and the DAM is no where in sight. I WILL NOT be making the update to Luminar 2019, unless it is totally free to ripped off Luminar 2018 for Windows 10 users.
