    When can we get the update? And how can we get it? Auto Update doesn´t work and offline installer link is a secret

    I am on 3.1.3 build 4280 and have had a pretty nasty issue but first I don't see the "Lost Edots album. Should this only appear if there's a need for it?

    I cannot get 3.1.3 installed.  When I launch Luminar it says there is an update.  It appears to install successfully (I receive a "new components have been installed message") but when I re-launch I am still running 3.1.2 and it again says there is an update available.  I have even tried uninstalling and re-installing from the download link under my account and it still installs 3.1.2.

    Same problem as Ralph Bley.  I wrote to tech support using the help/contact us in the Luminar menu system.

    Same problem as Ralph Bley has.
    But when it downloads the update the only available options are "Repair" or "Uninstall". With previous updates there was option to actually "Update". Upon pressing "Repair" it shows a progress bar which says "Installing..." After the installation is done it just pops up the window suggesting to start Luminar. No info about new components being installed though.

    Update läuft ohne Fehler durch, und startet wieder mit der alten Version. Wieder update möglich aber dann mit reparieren Option, auch ohne Ergebnis, also wieder die alte Version.

    Windows 10 64

    _________________

    Update runs without errors, and starts again with the old version. Update again possible but then repair option, even without result, so back to the old version.

    Here we go again .....  waited ages for it to "install"    ... updates components message  ... what does that mean?  Restart PC  ... why ? .... new desktop icon  ... old version.

    Damn it I do not need you DAM    ... I want a proper Windows photo editor that should have mouseover cues to what the tools etc. do.  This has never worked.   And we are to look forward to AI sky replacement in a version 4  ....  who needs that?

    Yes I am fed up with Skylum and Luminar.   Fortunately there are other alternatives now which do work properly

    Same issue as Ralph Bley. Have rebooted and attempted update several times. No joy.

    Same problem as the rest on Windows 10, 64-bit. Update to 3.1.3 doesn't seem to happen despite all indications that the update is successful. I haven't been able to find an installer log to help shed light on the update failure.

     

    Edit: I tried the offline installer from the forum entry "What to do when you try to install the update 3.1.3 and it loops" and it worked.

    Updating via this link from Luminar worked for me: https://downloads.skylum.com/luminar/win/Luminar3_Setup_offline.exe

    offline setup also worked for me, but the 3.1.3.3920 version now installed does not show a 'Lost Edits' Album even though i moved a newly edited file and renamed a newly edited file.

    Same thing for me, I "installed" the update, when I launch Luminar it tells me there is an update, I run it, except this time the option is to Repair or Uninstall. I run through the repair and the same thing happens when I launch Luminar again, it tells me there is an update available. I tried in another computer and received the same results. I re-started both computers to make sure there was nothing left behind in memory causing the problem, no luck.

    I removed Luminar 3 using the control panel and I am now re-installing to see if this helps, strangely enough the uninstall only took 4-5 seconds which seems too quick to have removed the 1 gb + of program files. 

    I am running Windows 10 Professional with the latest upgrades from Microsoft.

    Angela    ...... thanks for the Lost Edits information   ......   I see that this album does not show unless there are Lost Edits and I can see that that makes sense

    I'm sure I will take some heat from the haters for saying this, but overall I find the 3.1.3 update very good.  It's much faster at switching from photo to photo, and edits seem more responsive.  Additionally, I did a db backup and it was as fast or faster than Lightroom.

    Once we get the ability to mass export processed photos with watermarks applied, I will be pretty happy with the program as-is.

    by "haters" do you mean Skylum customers who were entitled to expect a fully functioning photo editor from day one, but did not get it?   Maybe this is much better but how long does it take, and why have we all had this updating problem today?.  I agree it is a lot better but Skylum are already announcing the next version.

    Bob,

    Don't you hate the haters? LOL

    I think the "haters" have their place in history ... they push to keep the companies on track, whether they succeed or not is a different story.

    My biggest beef is we were provided a list of features "teased" to purchase the product then the decision was made that those features were no longer needed/wanted and taken off the plate. 

    You may have a different perspective and I respect that, but would like your feedback on that point.

    As long as I don't have to pay $20/month for the rest of my life, I'm happy with whatever they offer.
