Chapter 8: Applying a Luminar Look

Luminar Looks allow you to make instant changes to your image with one click of a button. Each Luminar Look is made up of all the saved filters as well as the settings used for each of those filters.  Luminar Looks can also include Blending Modes and Opacity changes made to a filter or a layer. For each layer or adjustment layer, a different Luminar Look can be applied, which can make for some creative results!
