On the page to download the pre-release version of Luminar Neo, it says layers will be coming in the main release. But, when I hover over the question mark next to layers, it says "manipulate multiple photos with image layers." It is essential that Luminar Neo have adjustment layers and image layers. I really like the new way you can use and mask multiple tools, but that, along with the quote above, makes me fear that there won't be adjustment layers, only image layers. It would be a huge mistake to not allow adjustment layers. They would be super easy to have because they would basically be image layers without an image that you can edit exactly the same as an image layer with all of the tools and individual masking for each tool. You would also be able to add a mask to the adjustment layer itself (like a master mask) and it would apply those edits to all image layers under it. These two features--especially the latter--are crucial. Otherwise, it will be impractical and tedious to edit a manually focused stack image with multiple image layers without merging the files into one image layer.
