Well, first thing this morning I updated Luminar 3 and then after a couple of hours had to uninstall and re-install because the catalogue was frozen. Since reinstall at about 11am (now 4:30pm) the catalogue is still frozen on 0% and again cannot exit the program - will again have to manually shut down the old faithful Mac by the back button and ditch the program. May try another start up but am losing faith in this program.
I notice ON1 Raw has an introductory offer of $69 with a free upgrade! I might try this one first and see if the program actually works and I don't have to waste entire days trying to flog a dead horse!
WELL - as at 9:00am Saturday I kicked in my trusty iMac and lo and behold the Luminar3 had again automatically restarted and could not be shut down. Again had to force close the iMac and restart and was able to start the removal of luminar3 program. This time I removed all traces of it including all library and catalogues and back-ups.
I am retaining L2018, Flex and Aurora. L3 is GONE!!! I have had enough of wasting time on it.
I have now downloaded ON1 for trial and am amazed at how the library is instantaneous - as soon as the program is open the entire computer and external drives are available to browse! Will see if the editing is as good as L2018. Would be great if L2018 or Flex worked as plugins for this.
