It's arrived! Today we release free public beta of our best-selling all-in-one photo editor Luminar for Windows.

Several weeks ago, we announced Skylum’s official commitment to the Windows operating system, stating that our flagship products would soon be cross-platform.

Today, we’re making good on that promise by releasing our first-ever public beta of Luminar for Windows! Get it here.Luminar for Windows Public Beta | Skylum Blog(2)

Our engineers have been slaving over this version for nearly a year and, though there are some features not yet implemented, the core software is ready for your enjoyment! 

Luminar is a powerful non-destructive photo editor designed to tackle anyone’s photography needs, from correcting challenging image problems to artful stylizing. It includes over 300 robust tools that make fixing, editing and perfecting a photo as easy as moving a slider.

The public beta of Luminar for Windows matches the most important features of Luminar for Mac, including the newest Accent AI Filter, powered by artificial intelligence technology.

This innovative feature  allows  anyone to create stunning images with a single slider, substituting for dozens of traditional controls like shadows, highlights, contrast, tone, saturation, exposure, details and many others.

Admittedly, several features from the Mac version of Luminar remain in development for the Windows platform, among them workspaces, plug-in integration, object removal, noise reduction, and more. As these are completed, the public beta will be updated regularly leading up to a full cross-platform release in the Fall of 2017.

Key features of the Luminar for Windows public beta:

  • Adaptive user interface – Exactly matching the Mac version, the software adapts to the skill level and preferences of the photographer.

  • One-click presets – Over 50 pre-defined styles for every photography style.

  • Photo Editing Filters – Over 30 custom filters, each with built-in visual tips and a unique set of easy-to-use controls for correcting, enhancing and stylizing images.

  • RAW file conversion – Support for the latest RAW file libraries.

  • Non-destructive workflow – Edit without fear.

  • Recommended System Requirements – Windows 10, Core i5 2.2 or better, 8GB RAM, 1GB GPU RAM, SSD with 20+GB free space.
