Luminar 3.1.1 Real World Testing
I downloaded the update and launched Luminar. I have to say it definitely launched faster…thank goodness.
I then added a new folder of images to the library that was already on my computer and those rendered fairly quickly as well (134 images in that folder). Good stuff.
I then chose an image and popped over to the Edit module. I did a quick and dirty edit using the Accent AI 2.0 Filter. Loved the results. Added the Details Enhancer, a Vignette, and some Sharpening and the photo was done…FAST!
I’m very satisfied with the results. Editing was quick and easy. There is still a tiny lag when zooming in and doing detail work, but I really love the tools available and the results I get in Luminar 3.
