WHAT'S NEW FOR MAC USERS
Your Luminar image catalog database is now automatically backed up to preserve your edits and metadata. You can control the frequency of backups with the new Preference Panel.
Take control of your preferences by choosing Luminar 3 > Preferences. You can specify options for Cache, Catalog, and Automatic Backup.
If you’re working with a RAW file or 16-bit image and use the File > Open In command, a high-quality 16-bit file will be exported.
AURORA HDR INTEGRATION
Easily handoff bracketed photos to merge in Aurora HDR. Just select multiple images in your Library and choose File > Open In> Aurora HDR.
Please note that when sending images, your original, unmodified photos are used. When finished in Aurora HDR, be sure to save a TIFF or JPEG file back to the original folder to add it to your Luminar library.
Have you moved or copied media to a new location? Just right-click on an offline folder and choose Locate Folder to select it and reconnect files.
IMPROVEMENTS WHEN ADDING FOLDERS
Change your mind when adding a folder? Just click Cancel to stop the current task.
Quickly switch between Gallery and Single Image views with dedicated toolbar buttons.
NEW LANGUAGES SUPPORTED
Use Luminar in more languages, including:
- Chinese (Simplified)
- Chinese (Traditional)
SAFER IMPORTS & COPIES
Luminar will alert you if you try to import or copy more files to a destination that doesn’t have enough storage space.
If you try to export images that already exist in a location, you’ll be asked whether the files should be overwritten or renamed.
IMPROVED MOVING. When files are moved between an external and internal drive, the images aren’t duplicated in your Library.
IMPROVED FOLDER MANAGEMENT. Are you done with a folder? You can now remove parent (root folders) from your Library and delete them from your hard drive too.
IMPROVED sRGB EXPORTS. Some cameras showed color shifts when exporting with the sRGB profile. This has been addressed.
IMPROVED LUMINAR 3 PROJECT FILES. The opening of native Luminar files (.lmnr files) created on Windows has been improved.
STABILITY. Thank you for reporting various issues — this version of Luminar offers general stability improvements.
