Luminar Update

A while back, I reviewed Luminar 3. Its time for a Luminar update as they’ve released Luminar 4 Even though I didn’t write a Luminar 4 review, I did produce a Luminar 4 First Impressions video.

Luminar Update Is It Worth It

Luminar update

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.
