    That's not going to work, because all edits are stored in the catalogue. You'd have to have one catalogue per image at the moment.

    Currently L3 doesn't save to LMNR files (they say this will come in an update later) - so the only way now is to use it as a plugin to another program - eg Lightroom or photoshop (probably others but I'm not sure which software can use it as a plugin)

    Matt Suess has a video on YouTube on how to do this. Here's the link:

    Thanks Mark and Tony for your comments. I have absolutely how the library system works in this thing, except I now have no trace of what photos I have already done with L18. With the earlier version all i did was "save as" and I was able to retain the original RAW image as well as the edited history version and the completed jpeg version. This work flow system works well for me.

    Mark, I will have a look at the video and see what it does for me - but the briefly updated version of L3 still crashed as soon as I started to scroll the library. I am seriously looking at ditching the program altogether if they don't get it fixed soon!

    Hi Peter,

    If you haven't already, please contact us about the crash issue at www.skylum.com/support and we'll investigate.

    We do have an update coming soon (I'm anticipating next week) which should help.

    Angella,

    Did Peter come back to you? If yes how did you solve his problem?

    What do you think of Matt Suess Video? If it is good what about having it on Skylum Luminar 3 documentation?

    When are we going to get saving to lmnr file in Luminar 3?

     

    Thank you

    We’ll add the ability to save project files later but at the moment I don’t have a timeline for that.

    A workaround to recall settings you used for a project would be as follows:

    1. Open a photo in L3.
    2. Edit it.
    3. In the Edit panel on the right click Save Luminar Look.
    4. Enter a descriptive name.

    This won’t save layers but your filter settings will be saved. As a bonus, you’ll be able to instantly apply the settings you used for a certain project to other projects.

    If you need to re-edit a photo, load an unedited copy of it in Luminar and apply the look you saved in Step 4 to it (the look will be located in the User Looks category). You'll get the exact same filters and settings that you used for this project before.

    Thank you Kirk.

    To start with Skylum gave the impression that Mac and Windows version are the same. Sadly we found out they are not. Then Skylum said we will make  Windows version same as Mac. Sadly that did not happen.

    To start with when you released 3 you should have added the capability of saving lmnr. You did not. Now you are saying you do not have timeline...

    What can I say....?

    Skylum has let down the windows users very badly.
