Proper Grammar Is Important

Proper grammar is essential. Anyone that tells you differently is being less than honest. I have written many posts on the importance of correct grammar. Even when commenting on other blogs, your grammar has to be perfect!. In my post-teaching People The Proper Way To Comment, I listed it as the second most crucial point, second only to my Comment Policy.

Grammarly Knows Proper Grammar Is Important

I’ve only just recently come across Grammarly and was so impressed by what they have to offer I  joined. Yep, I bypassed their free offer. Why not, when their yearly subscription was under twelve bucks per month. They know that Good Grammar is essential and want to make it readily available at an affordable price.

Having Fun With Luminar 4

Today’s post, having fun with Luminar 4, is not an update of my Luminar 4 Update post. It’s more to show you guys just a little of what Luminar 4 can do. I also produced a video to show people that having fun with Luminar 4 is possible, Being Creative With Luminar 4.

Me Having Fun With Luminar 4

My being creative with Luminar 4 video shows me playing around with different images. Within minutes you see me making them more spectacular than the original image. It also shows just how easy it is to give photographs that WOW factor. The whole process took only minutes to do.

When I look at the ‘after’ image, I see something completely different. It’s as if I’ve gone back in time to witness the times of Jesus, even though the picture was taken in Gaeta and not in Jeruselum. The final image is a composite of two photos that I’ve taken, the one at Gaeta and the sunset from my front yard. Then a little tweak from Luminar 4 and voila, a work of art.

Naturally, it’s best to try different skies so you can select which one works the best with the photo you’ve chosen. It’s also a good idea to save the images to compare them so you can choose your favourite picture. Keeping the image also allows you to enhance it even further using your Luminar 4 program.

Luminar 4 Update

Yeah, I know what am I doing writing a Luminar 4 update when I haven’t written a Luminar 4 review. However, I did produce a Luminar 4 First Impressions video.

Luminar 4 Update Is It Worth It

I was very impressed with Luminar 4, and for me, the best feature was its ability to replace a sky. When I review any product, I always try my best to give an honest, unbiased opinion. I certainly wouldn’t say a product or service was worth the money when it wasn’t for the sake of making a couple of bucks.

Unfortunately, no matter what the product is, it’s impossible to please everyone. With my Luminar 1st Impressions video, there was one angry person who wasn’t happy at all with Luminar 4. I didn’t see his comment at first because YouTube had flagged it as spam. I suppose that was because he left the same comment on other videos that reviewed Luminar 4.

The crux of his complaint was that the latest Luminar release could not process RAW images. Either the program would freeze, or it would take so long to process the file that it wasn’t worth it.

You can see the comment here.

You’ll notice in that comment that he refers to 1,000’s of complaints on Skylum’s forum. I couldn’t find that many complaints. His chief complaint was, “I purchased this program and to say its slow is an understatement, and the CRASHES are every time it is put under pressure to do something!”

There was only one thing for me to do, and that was to process a RAW image with Luminar 4. I usually don’t use RAW images because they take up too much room. Besides, I’ve always found the Jpeg files more than adequate. So, I set my Canon EOS 550D to take a RAW and a Jpeg file. The Raw file 29.6MB while the Jpeg file was 9.1MB. That’s over three times the size! So, one would expect Luminar 4 to run a little slower.

So, I put Luminar 4 through its paces which you can see in my Does Luminar 4 Process RAW files? You’ll notice the lag is well within reason and the program didn’t crash once.
