    Still no exif data in the exported photos, but at least a bit faster.

    Hi Ingo,

    When I export a modified photo as a jpeg file in Luminar 3, my EXIF data is still there in the jpeg image.

    Hi Alex, just tried again, no exif data in the jpeg.

     

    Edit: I run Luminar as administrator, now the data is there!

    Well, that's odd??!!!

    I assume that the original RAW file has EXIF data?

    I think that it's time for the Luminar luminaries to weigh in...

    Cheers

    Well, it is faster but as soon as I started the new version 3.1.1. and all of my photos showed up my PC had a hard reset going into BIOS, restarting and as I opened Luminar my catalogue was gone.

    I added my folder (pics) again and when starting Luminar again it showed up twice.

    Then I deleted one of them - sure, it was the wrong one. I lost of my edited data and all the other things like favs and things.

    Great.

    Still, my Luminar Catalogue (CacheDocuments) holds up more than 45GB of data !

    My pic folder is about 120GB.

    What happened there?

    I did not expected the update going wild with my Catalogue and totally destroys the edited data and all of the changes I made to my pics. Still, they are all there in the Catalogue, I am sure.

    All the best,

    Robin

    Still a Memory Leack under Windows 10. Luminar eats RAM while browsing. Over time Windows has to enlarge the pagefile.

    The histogram is not updated until you release the mouse button. Not usable at all.

    No usable print dialog.

    Sorry, but Luminar 3 is still unusable for me!

    Mise à jour 3 1 1

    Bon, comme à chaque mise à jour, impossible de l'installer...

    reste bloqué sur "installation en cours 1 %"

    Celà devient vraiment pénible, chaque mise à jour est un problème... Je vais finir par abandonner Luminar.

    I tried to download the new updates. It errored out and only gave me a UNINSTALL option, so now it took out Luminar 3 totally. How do I get it back. I only see the download for the free 30 day trial. I purchased it back in Nov 2018.  Thanks

    No improvement for me, still hangs when I use local adjustments. Any chance of someone in support giving me an update on this? Have heard nothing since one of your techies used remote access to verify and hopefully identify source of my issue a couple of months ago. Pretty poor, Skylum.

    Meantime I'm using ON1 without issues.

    @Jean-Paul, l'installation est lente mais progresse et arrive à sa fin.

    Luminar 3 est correctement installé en une seule fois sur mon PC.

    Il a fallu 2 heures et 30 minutes pour l'installation. Skylum pourrait prévenir de cette lenteur.

    Cela me semble très long, mon installation a duré moins de 30 mn (ce qui est déjà très long).

    Disque et processeur sont au niveau sur ta machine ? La mienne a deux ans et fonctionne plutôt correctement avec Luminar, même si ça reste dans l'ensemble moins réactif que Lightroom Classic.

    Jean Christophe Dichant :

    en effet, c'est très long ! j'avais fait plusieurs tentatives d'installation de la mise à jour, qui paraissait bloquée à 1 %

    dernière tentative : réinstallation à 22 h 30... 1%... 22 h 50 : saut à 8 % ... 23 h 10 : 14 % ... réveillé à 3 h du matin :

    l'installation était terminée ! (en réalité, je ne sais pas combien de temps celà à pris)...

    Fonctionne parfaitement, beaucoup plus rapide que la version précédente (sur windows 7, 8 Giga de mémoire).

    J'étais sur le point de tout laisser tomber, et revenir à Lightroom ou autre...

    Il me semble que Skylum devrait étudier ce problème qui est quand même anormal ???

    meilleure façon de perdre des clients.

    Donc, si vous avez l'impression que la mise à jour ne s'installe pas, faites comme moi, lancez là, et revenez voir plusieurs heures après...

    For installation problems (e.g. "uninstall" only) on Windows 10, 1809 get the "alternative installer here in this forum entry:

  • Interesting. With the latest update from HDD it began to run faster than with SSD?

    Hi,

    Thank you for this update.

    Is it possible to know when the plugin feature will be implemented in Luminar 3 for Windows like in Luminar 3 for Mac please ?
    The roadmap doesn't mention it.

    They may be referring to IPTC data which keeps getting stripped out.

    For me, this update crashes 80% of the time as a plugin for LIghtroom. First time I am seeing this.

    You should not use Luminar 3 as a plugin to Lightroom but Flex, which is the Luminar plugin.

    I was still trying to work effectively with Luminar tonight.

    I only wanted to develop 40 RAWs. So a bit more than the old film reel.

    Question: where does a double click of the mouse button take you? With Luminar either back to the confusing browser, or to the 100% zoom or to derail the display ???

    And that wasn't the only disappointment.

    After the frustrating attempts with the current Luminar 3 I did my job with the current LR CC and for a few photos with the current CaptureOne.

    Bye Skylum !!! You had your chance to convince me of Luminar in about 2 years. Unfortunately Luminar is getting worse instead of better.

    Instead of using solid human intelligence for programming, you bet on AI. Was imho the wrong horse!

    Upgraded to 3.1.1  I'm getting a vertical black bar inserted on the right side of each picture I open in luminar.  Please see attached screenshot examples.  If I export the pictures the bar is in them.  The only way to get rid of it is to crop it out... Please advise...

    I give up on Luminar. Worked half an hour on a photo getting it just right and it wouldn’t save or as you term it, Export to Image. So many glitches, crashes. I like the effects but there’s no way this program can replace Photoshop. If the frustration level using the “Library” isn’t enough, then the jerky sliders and slow saving is enough to do me in.

    11 seconds from the time I select a raw image, to the time Luminar will allow me to edit it.  This is the same as version 3.1.0 and my earlier post to these forums a few weeks ago.  

    Jpeg times are around 3 seconds. Which is ok but needs to be better.  Shooting in jpeg is of course not an option.

    @Darlene Do I understand it correctly that you cant export an image? Please reach us here with a description of the issue:

    @Alan Please note that the performance of the app was improved. We will be happy to help if you give us more info on your issue. How big is your catalog? How many images are there? Are they located on your internal or external drive? Please send the answers here: https://skylum.com/support

    Really hope thay they will fix the really slow Raw editing. JPG works fine but it take 15-30 sec for the raws befor i can begin to edit one image after selecting it.

    I downloaded the program on Saturday and really loved how intuitive it is. However the constant freezing when switching pictures and modules render this software unusable for me. It is a shame because the edits on test pictures came out great. I have 2
    35000 images, 80 percent are jpgs.

    Fans on my Ryzen 5 running at 3.8Ghz with GTX 1070, 16Gb RAM STILL runs like crazy whenever I try to make any adjustments to my photos. Its still a hog. Who programmed this?
