    Will 4 include Libraries and will this also be further developed and improved from v3?  I now use this as my DAM but have some issues including export times which I hope will improve over time (yesterday 300 jpegs took over four hours to export)

    Hi John,

    Luminar 4 will certainly have the Library Module. However, we will continue updating Luminar 3 meanwhile. Luminar 4 will be developed from scratch and will bring lots of innovative features and improvements.

    Will Luminar 4 support raw files from Fujifilm X-T30?

    Hi Peter,

    Yes. We're doing our best to support this camera in Luminar 4.

    I am not currently a Luminar user although I am interested. I use a Fuji camera and I need something that does a way better job than Lightroom. I would like to take advantage of some of the current sales which include the free upgrade to Luminar 4.

    Here's my question. If I purchase the Luminar 3 + 4 early bird package, can that include the Flex module as well so I can still integrate with LR while I learn to use Luminar?

    @J. Ross. read the forum before you waste your money on Luminar. There are much better options out there from companies that don't lie to their customers. Buyer beware.

    When used as an Apple Photos extension, will the library module be automatically disabled in Luminar 4 (so I can use it in the same way as I currently use Flex?).

    Hi David,

    Yes, you'll be able to use Luminar 4 as an Apple Photos extension in the same way you currently use Luminar Flex.

    Hi I'm a current Luminar 3 user.  I got into Luminar by pre-ordering L3 and waiting for it. It has been less than a year and now a new version is coming out. I want to upgrade to L4 but I've received the pre-order deal however I have no interest in the bonus looks - I'd rather get a bigger discount on L4.  Is this possible?

    Hi Taffy, 

    The looks are the freebies. 

    If you don't like them, you can simply disregard.

    Nevertheless, you can contact us via http://www.skylum.com/support and we will try to figure out something for you.

    Does v 4 solve.. THIS ????  382% cpu... or; 45 sec for a pic to 'load' . another 45 sec to see possible filters... IF the right set loads from last time (50/50 it doesn't).  (whats the point of favs if it doesn't always show .. favs).  and finally... still crashes worse than a driver at a crash derby. 

    (and these times are before i linked to my network drive .. just local images). 

    I love the filters, i love the sw... but its takes me 15 times longer to go thru a batch of pics than my prev sw.  

    I waited nearly a year - prebuying v3... being swindled i feel in to own beta sw for full price.  now you are adding more .. and releasing a new AT cost to us v4??  It should be free for those of us who've done all your beta testing.

    Also - support for appending and Viewing GPS.. heck the entire meta data ... should be there already.  As should support for adding copyright metadata.   The limited info you provide for exif / metadata is silly.

    Hi Skylum folks. I have been a loyal Macphun and Skylum customer since CK2016. I bought Luminar, 2018, Flex and upgraded to L3, as well as Aurora HDR 2018. I feel that I have invested quite a lot of money with you, and I have cancelled my Adobe CC membership in the hope that Luminar would be a better model. But I now would have to pay another £54 to buy L4, when L3 is still buggy. How often will you be asking for more payments? This is a subscription service by another name. I am seriously considering going back to Adobe. At least I got frequent improvements to Lightroom that way, and a rock-solid DAM.

    Hi Martin! Please note that Luminar 3 upgrade was free for all Luminar 2018 users. 

    Also, Luminar 4 upgrade is optional. You can stick to your current version. We will continue to support Luminar 3. Check out our roadmap:

    Hi Anastasia. First, that link doesn't work. Second, by L3 being supported does that mean it may actually be free of bugs in the foreseeable future?

    I don’t see versions of a file on either roadmap. By this I mean alternative versions with different adjustments of one file. This was originally in the 3 roadmap?

    Hi John,

    I believe you are referring to virtual copies? If so, this is still on our to-do list but we have other features that have taken a higher priority at this time and we don't have an ETA on implementation.
