    Hi Scott Wilson,

    If I understand you correctly, you want LuminarAi, Luminar 4, Aurora HDR, and Luminar Neo to be displayed under right-click>Open with or you are trying to install them as plugins to some host app?

    Hi Helena
    When I downloaded the folders I had paid for I would like to add those folders to the Tool section of the main apps but I am unsure how to do that. I know some of the downloaded folders are NOT common to the main programmes but when I have tried to ADD IMAGE I just get them coming on my main screen and NOT in the Tools Edit eg skies etc. Sorry if I am not making myself understood.

    Hi Scott,

    We apologize for additional questions. However, could you specify some aspects to avoid misunderstanding?

    "When I downloaded the folders I had paid for I would like to add those folders to the Tool section of the main apps"   - - - - -    Which folders exactly do you mean? Do you by any chance refer to the marketplace add-ons like skies/templates/LUTs/overlays, etc.?

    Is there a possibility to send us the corresponding screenshots?

    Hi Ivan
    Yes you’ve got it on one. It is the marketplace add one like skies templates etc. I have them downloaded on my MacBook under downloads and want to move them over. Sorry I have not been explicit enough but I am not that IT savvy.
    Thanks.
