Is Luminar 3 any good though? I've been looking to purchase Luminar 4; how do they compare? Anyone out there have both?

Ok, if you need it a few times a year to edit your party/holiday photos. For anything more serious I wouldn't bother. Luminar is not a professional software.

I was fairly impressed with Luminar 4's trial version, but I am more its market than most would be anyway.

This version has "Sky Enhance", but not the sky replacement of version 4. It's basically a smart contrast adjustment.

Downloaded. Will try. If I'm happy I'll order the latest version..
Thank you for this post!

I wouldn't bother getting it even for free, sorry.

There isn't any instructions on receiving Luminar 3....

Read the last line of this article: "If you want to recieve Luminar 3, you can sign up via this form."
Enter your name, enter your email, click the agree box and you're set.
You will receive an email with instructions.. and probably more advertising their latest version =)

Alex Coleman I purchased Luminar 3 18 months ago. Do you have any inside information if Luminar 4 is going to be free 18 months from now?😂

Magic 8 Ball says: Check back in 18 months. (But for real, I've got no clue.)

Drats. T knew it would have been too got to be true. I watched a video regarding sky replacement in Luminar 4 and the host was impressed...can't remember if it was posted here or else where.

Would like to point out, that the official website for Skylum is www.skylum.com
Non of the links in this article points to that address.
The actually points to a website block by my host file.

Then where do they lead to?

"Eventually the links will lead you to www.Skylum.com
Just have a very strikt setup on my pc."

Edit this post to reflect new information.

Just to track the site source of where the request for FREE Luminar 3 came from. Revenue maker for FStoppers. These types of links are common.

I used the trial of Luminar 4 as I wanted to replace some skies (an airshow in rotten weather) and this freebie might be handy for that kind of thing as the "Sky replacement" tool does a halfway decent job but nothing else works particularly well.
I wouldn't bother with it.

Alex Coleman's picture

That's been the big feature Luminar offers, but I think it's also a decent bet if you just need to edit some shots quickly, or have a family member that doesn't need to pay full price for any editing software.

Luminar 3 doesn't have sky replace - only sky enhance, which is basically a contrast adjustment

I did end up downloading it. I tried it out yesterday with a batch of photos. From all that I've seen, it isn't a "Lightroom Killer" or anything to that extent, but it is adequate for what I do. I'm not going to be doing world-class edits on it; however, that doesn't detract from its uses.

I filled in the form and submitted but haven't received any email back!

Does it still work?
I have submitted the form, but nothing has come even after few hours of waiting. Checked my spam folder, also nothing.

It say its the Trial Mode
