Hi All, in Australia we are one of the guinea pigs for the new release. I feel that this is a good idea because it will save a flood of enquiries to Skylum with the major release on the 18th. I received my eMail notification yesterday at 5:21 pm but did not activate until today.
Initially I was hesitant to install Luminar 3 as there was no detailed manual to read, and after watching a couple of Webinars I decided to import only 8 folders [including subfolders] (because of the intricacy of importing RAW images). The Luminar Installer 3 downloaded reasonably fast and after accepting the Licensing agreement, Deciding on the Destination, reading the Message to follow the quick guide or Download the in depth guide, installation was quick and easy.
I would recommend that you Download and read the new User Guide plus watch most of the short videos and Webinars before importing as this will explain how Folders replicates Finder and the difference between Folders and Albums. You will also decide if you want to Copy or Move images and organise your file structure.
My final comment is that it all went well, I like the ability to view and rate the selected images and would like to congratulate Skylum on their initial release and am looking forward to future updates to improve the software to a full functioning DAM.
