Luminar is an advanced photo editing tool from Skylum. Able to be used on its own, or as a plug-in for popular applications like Photoshop, Lightroom, and Apple Photos, Luminar can handle all of your typical photo editing needs whether you’re on a Mac or a Windows PC. And, like Lightroom and Apple Photos, all of your edits are non-destructive. You can go back to your original image at any time. I got tired of the subscription model for Lightroom and Photoshop and discovered Luminar can handle almost all of my editing needs.
