In fine arts portrait work, the artist's original color, variations in expression, and speed are very important. One of the most important things is that Luminar can help to edit intuitively, by moving parameters with various filter functions and sliders. I especially like the simplicity of using creative filter function such as Sunray filter, LUT mapping, Orton effect, Accent AI 2.0, and the latest rendering technology. All this allows to quickly and delicately express the original color. I'm glad I can use it without the need for difficult operations. Editing with Luminar makes excellent results.
