What’s New

Version 1.1.0

The Luminar Neo 1.1.0 Update is here, bringing you the long-anticipated Portrait Background Removal feature. 
Select a human in your photo and automatically remove the background behind them. Enjoy precise selections, a smart refinement brush, and the ability to save the portrait as a separate PNG file to use as you please. Additionally, there are lots of improvements for your Layers workflow. On added layers use Fit, Fill, and Stretch in Image mapping and retain the desired proportions. Reorder Layers as you wish, and enjoy support for raw files. Double-click the slider button to reset the Layer opacity to the default setting. Export PNG, TIFF, and JPEG2000 files with saved transparency (in Luminar Neo as a standalone app). Plus, find lots of small tweaks that make the interface even more pleasant: collapsing groups in Tools, updated Crop AI tools, and small changes to the Erase button. To top it all off, we’ve caught more than 20 bugs that could lead to unexpected results!

Bug fixes:
* Correctly display the choose subject functionality in the Vignette tool on added Layers
* Get a clear photo preview in the grid even if the preview size is more than 600px
* Press Clear mask and the selected categories in Mask AI will be unselected
* Save only images containing edits as Presets
* View correct German and Ukrainian localizations in the Graphics section of preferences
* Reopen Luminar without showing a previously hidden Filmstrip

Very nice but no plugins with the app store version?

Great software and great company.
But heads up: As far as I can tell, the plugins for photoshop and lightroom are not available in the version from the mac app store. I didn't see any warning of this in the FAQs or elsewhere. It would be good to make this clearer somehow.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Thank you for your feedback! If you'd like to use Luminar as a plugin for PS or LR, please send Luminar proof of purchase to our support team at and they will be happy to help.
