Yesterday our CEO, Alex Tsepko released the following statement about the upcoming Digital Asset Manager (DAM) update for Luminar 2018:
"We know that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people are waiting for this update. But mainly because there are so many people who need this tool, we wanted to take just enough time to make everything right.
We promise we will ship the DAM this year. I know it has been a long wait, but we don’t want to ship a product that we would not use ourselves. The new Luminar (with DAM) will bring you great speed and the most incredible user experience available. Your photos will play the main role. Our software aims to get out of the way.
The update will be free for everyone who has Luminar 2018.”
Since that post we’ve had a few questions:
Q: Will Luminar 2018 be updated with the DAM or will all Luminar 2018 users get a copy of Luminar 2019?
A: Luminar 2018 will be updated with the DAM
Q: How long after Luminar 2018 is updated with DAM will Luminar 2019 be released?
A: We plan to release Luminar 2019 later next year.
Q: Will Luminar 2018 users get updates to the DAM to address bugs?
A: Seeing as there will be several months between the release of DAM and the next (paid) major version upgrade, there will be updates to address bugs.
Q: Will Luminar 2018 users get a discount on Luminar 2019?
A: Yes. We always provide upgrade discounts for our customers. However, pricing for Luminar 2019 (and discount amounts) have not yet been finalized.
