    Luminar AI can't do plugins since it doesn't support layers. Luminar 4 can, whilst Luminar Neo doesn't have true layers at present, so can't.

    Hi guys!

    The use of Photoshop-style plugins is currently not available in Luminar Neo. However, we clearly understand the popularity of this request and are actively exploring its implementation. Our brand-new Luminar Neo engine and layers workflow mean that support is possible. This will pave the way for smoother integrations with other specialized plugins.

    Any progress on this in the last couple of months?  I want to upgrade to Neo but only if I can integrate my Topaz denoise plugin as I do in Luminar 4.  
    Thx!

    I also really need this feature as I use Topaz products all the time. Not having this capability will force me to go back to L4 - again!

    Please add Topaz plugins to Neo. I bought Neo not knowing that plugins don't work. Without that capability Neo hold little value to me and have only used it a couple of times. Seems like a good piece of software that falls just a wee bit short

    I was excited to use the Neo, until I found out that I can't add Topaz plug in as I can in Luminar 4.

    The ability to use independent plug-ins/extensions really is needed to make your Luminar Neo useful for most people. Luminar Neo is a good try but the ability to use plug-ins makes Paintshop Pro's access to plug-ins a better deal because plug-in makers like Topaz, Perfectly Clear, Eye Candy, etc. specialize in limited fields rather than also supporting a full platform like you and Paintshop.

    Fully agree with the above. I pre bought Neo only to find  out that it doesn't use Plug-ins..My bad.  Still using Luminar 4. The failure to include plug-ins will push people to other platforms...

    Completely agree. I still use v4. I will move on from skylum products before moving up to neo unless plugins are offered soon.

    Not at the moment, however, we do have this feature in our backlog.

    I would alos like to give my vote her for the possibility to use Topaz as Plugin with Luminar Neo.
    I´ve also bought Luminar Sharpen and Noiseless AI, but Topaz Photo AI gives better results.
    But Luminar Neo is excellent for the proceeding Raw-Development
    Since Luminar also supports Layers (as Luminar 4) it would be great to have the possibility to Use Topaz as a plug-In.
    Any news on this topic like an aimed delivery month?

    Hi Michael,

    We have no ETA for such an update yet. Therefore, you can only export the processed photo from Luminar Neo and then re-upload it to Topaz's standalone mode.

    Hmm, just upgraded from Luminar 4 to Neo simply because topaz photo ai plugin crashes luminar 4. denoise and sharpen still work fine. I was kind of annoyed to see that there was NO implementation of this at all! I might ask for a refund, as i was quite happy with luminar 4 up to this point. I now have less in a more modern software package. NOT HAPPY

    I'm with you Steve. I'm reevaluating Lightroom even though I hate the subscription service at least my plugins will work and the update path with skylum products could just as well be a subscription service. Very fortunate because I really like my workflow in luminar 4. But it seems there's no other path forward on several fronts.

    Apart from a few extra gimmicks, its not really a lot different from luminar 4. and it seems to slow down my computer more. Ill work with it for a few days to see if its worth it. Very disappointed about the lack of plugin support. Hopefully they can put that to the top of the pile.. I moved away from Lightroom because of the subscription model and didn't miss it one bit with luminar 4. Like most people, I am a hobbyist, and don't want to pay out monthly for software. Its a different story for professional photographers obviously. Lets see..
