Who is Luminar For?

Besides the creative photographer, I get the feeling Luminar AI will be a hit amongst the hands-on creator types; individuals with a keen eye for creating attractive content and images.

Now, this can be for the application across a wide range of different, both web and printed material. Including social media, blogging and other article related content, as well as apps, books, posters or even fine-art…

Another useful aspect of this AI driven photo-editing software is how effectively you can change the mood of your photos. Perfect for telling your stories in a visually dramatic way and getting there fast.

LuminarAI  is the quick new answer to editing professional portraits, landscapes, and finishing at high quality with enhanced detail.

Is Luminar 4 still available and supported?

As mentioned earlier, Luminar AI or Luminar Neo are not replacements for Luminar 4 and previous supported versions.
However, as an existing Luminar 4 user,  you are left to wonder whether Luminar AI is a necessary purchase for you at this time.

The good news to date, is that existing users can purchase the new Luminar AI at discounted price.

However, if you are happy with your current software, there’s no need to purchase the new generation of Luminar. You should be able to continue using Luminar 4 on your current system with some support for a while.
