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.

French Joke Friday Funnies #376

Today’s Friday Funnies is a French joke. I’m calling it a french joke because it has a French woman in it and it’s funny.

French Joke A Woman And Her Dog

There was this American soldier who was looking for a place to sit on the train. The only seat available was directly adjacent to a well dressed middle-aged French woman, and her dog was using the seat. The weary soldier asked, “Ma’am, please move your dog so I can have that seat.”

french joke

The French woman looked down her nose at the American, sniffed and said, You Americans are so rude. Can’t you see my little FiFi is using that seat?”

The American walked away, determined to find somewhere to rest. Unfortunately, no empty seats were to be seen, and he found himself again facing the woman with the dog. Again he asked, “Please, lady. May I sit there?”. I’m very tired.”

The French woman wrinkled her nose and snorted “You Americans! Not only are you rude, but you are also arrogant. Imagine!”

The American didn’t say another word. Instead, he leaned over, picked up the dog, tossed it out the window of the train and sat down in the empty seat.

The woman shrieked at the American and demanded that someone defend her honour and chastise the American.

An English man sitting across the aisle spoke up indignantly “You know, Sir, you Americans do seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You eat holding the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, Sir, you’ve thrown the wrong bitch out the window.”

Funny Irish Logic Friday Funnies #375

You’ve got to love the funny Irish logic, especially, because funny Irish logic tends to make you laugh out loud.

Funny Irish Logic Regarding Mad Cow Disease

They never aired this particular TV interview. You know there are so many TV channels, each starved of new programs.

In a rural program for farmers, a female TV reporter seeking the leading cause of Mad Cow disease, arranged for an interview with a farmer who may have some theories on the matter…

The interview was as follows…

The lady reporter: “I am here to collect information on the possible sources of Mad Cow Disease… Can you offer any reason for this disease? “

The farmer stared at the reporter and said: “Do you know that a bull mounts a cow only once a year? “

Reporter (obviously embarrassed): “Well, sir, that’s a new piece of information…but what’s the relation between this phenomenon and Mad Cow disease?”

Farmer: “And, madam, do you know that we milk a cow twice a day? “

Reporter: “Sir, this is really valuable information, but what about getting to the point? “

Farmer: “I am getting to the point, madam. Just imagine, if I was playing with your tits twice a day. And only screwing you once a year, wouldn’t you get mad? “

Funny Irish The program was never aired!

‘What’s in the bag?’ asked Paddy

‘I’m not going to tell’, replied Murphy

‘Go on, do.’ pleaded Paddy. 

‘Ah, all right then, it’s ducks.’ announced Murphy

‘If I guess how many ducks you have in the bag, will you give me one of them?’ enquired Paddy.

‘Look’, said Murphy, ‘If you guess the correct number, I’ll give you both of them.’

‘Five!’ said Paddy triumphantly.
