Like everyone else has already noted browsing images, opening images, editing images, basically a lot of everything in Luminar 3 is really slow. Sometimes things will pop along reasonably, then you'll do something else and it'll really delay.
So I tried forcing Luminar to only use the integrated GPU and not the discrete Nvidia GPU. It went from barely usable to comparable to Lightroom, or even better in some ways (which is saying a lot). I also tested it forced to the Nvidia GPU (instead of auto select) and it was back to terrible.
I'm curious if others have tried this and what they have found. If you have Windows with Nvidia, you should be able to do it in the "NVIDIA control panel" application.
My specs: Gigabyte Aero 15 / 16MB ram / i7-7700HQ / Nvidia Geoforce GTX 1060
PS: I am plugged in with all power settings set to high performance. That is, maxed out in every way to prevent the machine from throttling anything.
