Ok the name might not be exact for the next all singing all dancing new version of Luminar coming soon.but I'm sure it will be similar.
I've been bombarded daily with Luminar emails for a while now trying to convince me to upgrade to Luminar AI... and the reason I believe is because they are trying to get as many people onboard as possible before the release of the next version of Luminar for which you will have to pay again.
For the record I bought Luminar 2018, then Luminar 3, then Luminar Flex but now it was starting to dawn on me about the con that was taking place... I then bought Luminar 4. I didn't buy Luminar AI because I had finally woken up to the con.
So now that the latest discount campaign appears to have finished, I have now received this email from Luminar, which clearly states there is going to be another version of Luminar. Not an upgrade, not an improvement but another version which like the 4 versions I have previously bought, will no doubt not be compatible with the previous versions and we have to start all over again. This is just a con to get you to buy their software all over again and again and again.
"Would you be willing to learn about features we’re thinking about integrating in a new version of Luminar and tell us what a product with these features would be worth to you?
This survey will take just a few minutes of your time but will help the Skylum Team create an even better version of Luminar."
Here's a radical suggestion Skylum... how about you treat your customers with some respect. How about you design the software and then keep on adding to and improving the software over the coming years, maybe you'll be rewarded with some customer loyalty or is all that you are interested in is the customers money?
