Luminar Neo 1.7.0: Additional plugin functionality, Presets preview, and more

General Updates

You can now use the HDR Merge, Focus Stacking, and Upscale AI Extensions not only directly in Luminar Neo but also from the Lightroom plugin. Achieve even more impressive results with any editing workflow.

To make editing with Presets even faster and more convenient, you can now scroll down the list of Presets and view the effect of each Preset on your photo on hover, without needing to click and apply it.

Overall, Luminar Neo 1.7.0 is faster and more stable when applying the first edit, making further edits and managing the Edit History, reapplying effects, and editing photos that contain people.

Last but not least, we’ve fixed a number of bugs so Luminar Neo runs even more smoothly. Enjoy your editing! 


MacOS

Bug fixes:

  • On macOS Mojave, Catalina, and Big Sur, you can now work with raw images in PSD format without encountering crashes.
  • Images from the Photoshop plugin now contain the alpha channel.
  • Click the Show and Hide actions in the Exif panel without causing the Catalog to change position.
  • Enable Auto Distortion Correction without impacting performance.
  • Use the Optics tool, Body AI, or Face AI without loss of detail at the edges of objects on images with an alpha channel.
  • The effects of Transform and Optics in the Develop Raw tool are retained when you apply the first non-raw tools to a photo.
  • Create images with the Focus Stack Extension without artifacts appearing.
  • Apply advanced settings in the Glow tool with the Amount slider set to zero without modifying image colors. 

Windows

Bug fixes:

  • Open images in Luminar Neo as a Photoshop plugin without orientation issues.
  • When working in Luminar Neo as a Photoshop plugin, add a layer with transparency without a black image appearing.
  • Reconnect a storage device and see folders on your network attached storage.
  • Enable Auto Distortion Correction without impacting performance.
  • Use the Optics tool, Body AI, or Face AI without loss of detail at the edges of objects for images with an alpha channel.
  • Effects of the Develop Raw tool’s Transform and Optics sliders are retained when you apply the first non-raw tools to a photo.

  • Apply advanced Glow tool settings with the Amount slider set to zero without modifying image colors.
