    Hi Clement,

    Let's try the steps below:

    1. Remove Luminarᴬᴵ with AppCleaner.
      AppCleaner is a free app that automatically removes not only the applications themselves but also the related files, making 'clean' uninstall easy.
      Download AppCleaner from here:
      When removing Luminarᴬᴵ, mark all the files and folders in the list, except for
    2. Open Finder and navigate to Applications > Utilities.
    3. Launch Terminal.
    4. Paste defaults delete com.skylum.luminarai in the Terminal window and press Enter on your keyboard.
    5. Paste defaults delete com.skylum.luminarai.photoextension in the Terminal window and press Enter on your keyboard.
    6. Close Terminal and restart your Mac.
    7. Download Luminarᴬᴵ here: 
    8. Double-click the zip folder to extract Luminar.
    9. Copy the extracted file to your Applications directory.
    10. Launch Luminarᴬᴵ, activate it if necessary, and open any image in it.
    11. Navigate to System Preferences > Extensions and see if Luminarᴬᴵ is displayed in the list for Photos Editing. Enable it if needed.

    In case Luminar isn't on the list when you're on Step 10, no worries: restart your computer one more time and make sure that Reopen windows when logging back in is unchecked.


    Launch Luminarᴬᴵ, open any image in it, and navigate to System Preferences > Extensions one more time, Luminarᴬᴵ should be on the list now.

    I hope this helps.
