Here's everything we need to know about the new Luminar with Libraries, which comes out this December.

Now that many of you have had a taste of Luminar's jaw-dropping AI Sky Enhancer, we're pretty sure you're pumped up about the next major Luminar update. We know you've been waiting for this for a long time. We understand that there's been a lot of frustration, as not only has this update been a long time coming, but it's also something that many of you need to improve your editing process and photo management.

So without further ado, we are happy to officially announce that we will start rolling out Luminar 3 with Libraries on December 18, 2018.

Better Photo Management

Why does Luminar 3 with Libraries matter? Well, to start, it allows both pro photographers and casual shooters a way to organize their images inside of Luminar itself.

Libraries, which will load with lightning speed, will allow Luminar users to manage their database of photos efficiently, find specific images faster than before, or simply view their photos easier. It will let users color label, tag, and rate their shots, and it will also automatically organize those shots by date, month, and year.

With Libraries, you don't have to look through each and every folder to find that one particular photo of your family from years ago or try and guess which shot you liked best from that series of images you took. You can find that family photo faster simply by remembering what date or month it was taken, and you can access all your favorite shots by selecting Favorites or 5 Stars from a drop-down menu.

Edit Synchronization

That's not all. Most importantly, Luminar 3 with Libraries will also improve your editing workflow by offering edit synchronization and batch editing. That means that you can edit one image, and apply those exact edits to other photos in just a couple of clicks.
