First Look: Luminar 2018 Supernova

Luminar 2018 | Perfect Photos in Less Time

Macphun has launched Luminar 2018 Supernova!

Luminar 2018 Supernova for Mac and Windows, is a major upgrade and includes new filters powered by artificial intelligence, major speed improvements, and a dedicated RAW develop module.

I got my hands on the pre-release about a week ago and I’ve been having a blast! My favorite new filter? SUN RAYS!! OMG! They are awesome! There are a ton of enhancements/upgrades from the previous version, Luminar Neptune.

What’s New?

There are a ton of new and improved features in Luminar 2018 Supernova! New features include:

  • Sun Rays Filter
  • LUT Mapping Filter
  • Dodge & Burn Filter
  • RAW Develop Filter
  • Hue Shift Filter
  • Matte Look Filter
  • Brilliance/Warmth Filter
  • Lens Correction Filter
  • Transform Filter
  • Image Flip & Rotate (available for Mac, coming soon to PC)
  • Realtime Noise Reduction
  • Quick Overlay Preset Button

There are also significant improvements in the innovative adaptive user interface, faster RAW Processing, RAW handling (reveals more details in shadows/highlights, displays colors more accurately, and reduces noise) faster masking performance, and a better crop tool.

Digital Asset Management (DAM)

One of the most requested features for Luminar is Digital Asset Management (DAM) and I’m happy to report it is coming soon! While it won’t be included in the Luminar 2018 launch, it will be a free update next year.

Photographers will be able to organize, sort, rate, and backup their photos with Luminar’s new DAM, without the hassle of a subscription service! For a taste of what they are working on check out this video and/or the screenshots below:
