A Few Words About Luminar 4

Whilst Luminar 4 can help make it incredibly quick at achieving the style of photo you require for a project. It goes without saying, that the quality of your photo is, as always, an important factor.

Luminar 4 will not make you a better photographer, but you knew that already. What you should bear in mind though, is that the technology behind Luminar 4 predicates on the learnt data it uses for intelligently processing any given image.

However, you will also find, for example, that Sky Replacement or any of the other Luminar tools, may not work on an image which perhaps lacks the necessary data needed to distinguish the differences between objects in a given photo .

Please can you help. I have been having a lot of problems with Luminar 4 this afternoon. I can’t get it past the start up screen as it keeps freezing and I have to restart my computer to unlock it. I love this software but a little disappointing in it keep crashing even if i manage to get it passed the opening screen. I was thinking of re installing it to see if this would fix the issue but worried that I wouldn’t be able to use it again. Any help much appreciated.
