    Are you accessing Luminar via the Lr plugin? Lr will then create a tiff and send it to Luminar where you can edit it. Following edit you hit apply and the image will be sent back to Lr where it will be found next to the original.

    Yes, I'm. It was working with Luminar 2018. Now, with Luminar3 I send the image to Luminar3, I make adjustments then I send it back to Lightroom. There appear TIFF but without any adjustment applied, it is the same as the original photo.

    Just tried it again on my Mac and it worked perfectly with L3. Right click on image in Lr send tiff to L3, hit the Apply button in L3 and the tiff is returned to Lr showing all Luminar edits.

    Hi Maryna,


    Thanks for the reply. I did all you suggested, but it did not help. Still the same issue.

    Hi Peter,

    Please try using the Export > Luminar 3 command rather than the Edit In > Luminar 3. 

    Let me know how it goes.

    Hi Angela,
    Thanks for reply. It is too late. I uninstall Luminar3 and install Luminar 2018 rather, which works much better for my needs.I will only install L3 after next update.Sorry, I have to say it, there is much more bugs then working features in L3.
