    I am also having trouble with Luminar 3. I installed it but whenI loaded my photos into the library it crashed. Now it wont start up and I have tried unistalling, modifying and reinstalling, but nothing works on either of my computers. Both use Windows 10

    Well, I just cannot activate Liminar 3. Internet connection is working, but Luminar doesn't see it. Windows 7.

    I've uninstalled, reinstalled, put it on a different drive, etc. All to no avail. Luminar 2018 works fine, as does Lightroom 6, Topaz Labs, and ON1 RAW 2019. I really wanted Luminar 3 to work so I can get rid of Lightroom.

    1. You may want to delete Luminar Catalog folder under Pictures.

    2. Relaunch Luminar.

    3. Adding folders one by one. At least adding those ones that you think the most likely to edit soon.

    Deleting the catalog folder did not do anything to solve the problem. I did that procedure but I am still unbale to see any photos just black screen.

    For those who wish, a 60 day money back guarantee is on the Luminar 3 webpage.

    I have given up on the library and am using the opensource DAM 'Digikam' which has all that I expected Luminar 3 to have.

    The lack of credits on the website is obvious, which doesn't appear normal?

    Thanks for the information about Digikam. I will try it.
