Macphun luminar

Product info.

San Diego, CA October 18th, 2016 – Macphun have today announced their next generation photo editing solution, Luminar, the photo editing tool which grows with photographers’ capability and knowledge.

With more creative editing capabilities and an innovative adaptive interface, Luminar is built for unprecedented user convenience, simplicity, and creativity.

Luminar will be available for pre-order on November 2nd at a discounted price, starting from $49, and will officially launch on November 17th.

User Interface that adapts to the user’s workflow

Luminar user interface is built around the idea that every photographer is different, and therefore photo-editing needs are different too.

Users can choose from different interface variations, designed for a variety of photo editing tasks: from quick fixes to advanced image editing. Based on need and skill level, user interface modes can be switched with the press of a button.

Workspaces & Filters

Luminar is the first Macphun editor to introduce Workspaces – scalable sets of tools most suitable for a specific type of photography.

Default Workspaces include Portrait, Landscape, Street, and Black & White Photography.

In addition users can create an unlimited number of custom Workspaces, as well as import Workspaces from other photographers. Luminar 1.0 will feature over 35 imaging filters, from classic Tone & Exposure, to Bi-Color, Photo Filter Emulation, Cross-Processing, Detail Enhancement and dozens of others. Each filter includes a set of precise controls, which can be adjusted to create countless different looks.

Users can save a group of pre-adjusted filters to create their own preset, or for convenience, choose from over 50 pre-defined presets. With categories ranging from Outdoor to Portrait, Street to Drama, and much more, there’s a preset for every photography style.

Innovative non-destructive editing workflow
