    Isn't the catalogue issue fixed yet? I asked for a refund a few months ago, but I was willing to give Luminar a new chance. However, it seems that this issue persists..

    Hi Luciano,

    We have released an update since then which resolved several issues. We invite you to download the trial and see if Luminar suits your workflow. If you need the trial to be reset please reach out to us at www.skylum.com/support and we'll be happy to take care of that for you.

    It's faster to load at the beginning, but viewing images takes a while - zooming in can take 30s, and applying filters is slow also.

    Brilliant bit of kit if you have all day, but too slow to be useful.

    I have a new Mac Pro with 16gb ram

    Hi Henk v Hoek,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with Luminar's performance on your Mac. Please note that 8GB of ram is the minimum required to run our software. If you're able to upgrade your internal memory you'll likely see a notable increase in speed.

    Very Slow.....Very Disappointing.  I use Windows 10, 12GB Ram, i5.  Lately its not even copying adjustments to another image or not exporting Nikon D700 nef files.

    Luminar 3 is so slow it's unusable for me. I have a Windows PC i7 with 16g ram.  I keep using Lightroom because Luminar takes forever to load "Luminar Looks".  Luminar 2018 was sooooooo much faster and usable for adjustments. I'm sorry I purchased this program, wanted Luminar 3 to work better, however it is way to slow.

    And the answer to upgrade the pc is not what I am waiting for , and the most of us don't ! So remove the brakes and let it run like the 2018 version please !

    The speed has improved a bit, but still practically not usable. I switched to Luminar Flex. It has all the benefits of Luminar 3 and is fast, comparable with the 2018 edition. You can use it as a standalione progam. It only has no catalog functionality. But for that you can stick to Lightroom and use Luminar Flex as plugin.

    Hi @James, @Henk, @Sjoerd,

    We will release a new update within a week which should improve Luminar 3 performance.

    However, we're constantly working on it.

    Hi Helena,

    I just purchased Luminar 3 and similarly to the others I face terrible and disappointing performance.

    Is the update you're mentioning already released or still on its way?

    Best,

    Rémi
