    Hi Nigel! As soon as you click on the Done button, you can't get back to all the prior history you had in Flex. Nevertheless, you can use Luminar Flex as a Smart Filter in Photoshop, thus, all the history will remain.

    This would be a perfect addition to the product in my opinion and is technically possible.

    In the standalone luminar, the original photo is kept and only a "recipe" with editing instructions is saved containing the layers and all the edits. When using Luminar as plugin for MacOS Photos these Luminar edits should be saved in a "sidecar" file.

    The approach is described in the following page of a former Apple engineer working on Aperture:
