Easy to use

I use this application on my 2013 Macbook pro most other image manipulation software is inoperable on my old computer. Luminar AI runs flawlessly on this old computer. Also Luminar AI makes it easy to improve images that I created in camera.

Love it, few small fixes would make it PERFECT

I switched to this from Lightroom. I LOVE this one, it allows much more photo editing creativity in my opinion. My only problem is it will often crash and close the application while i'm using it.

Another thing that would make this app even better would be to make the export time a little shorter. It took me over an hour to export 79 photos to my desktop. Lightroom would only take 5-10 minutes.

Concerning the crash and export issues, please do reach out to us via, and we'll see what we can do to help you enjoy the app to the full. Best regards

Doesn't Work with M1 Mac

I have a new MacBook Pro with the M1 silicon and I haven't had any success with Luminar AI. I can open files and folders and view the .CR3 files from my Canon R5, but I can't do any editing work with them because the images don't display correctly. It converts the colors in all the RAW files to muted pastel colors. So frustrating that I can't use the software I just paid $50. If you're on an M1 Mac and shooting RAW with a Canon R5, think twice before purchasing this version of the software. I'll re-evaluate after Skylum updates the software to support M1s and CR3s.

Developer Response ,

Hi Michael - I regret to inform you that Canon R5 is not yet supported by Luminar AI, but we will definitely add support for this camera in one of the future updates. In the meantime, we recommend you installing Adobe DNG Converter and converting your RAW files to DNG file format (which is supported by Luminar).
