Chapter 4: Using Luminar Flex with Adobe Photoshop

Luminar Flex is a powerful addition to Adobe Photoshop.  To apply Luminar Flex as a filter, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure Adobe Photoshop is open.

  2. Open an image you’d like to enhance.

  3. Choose Filter > Skylum Software > Luminar Flex… 
A new dialog appears to indicate that Luminar Flex is running.

  4. Luminar Flex should automatically open the image you were editing.

  5. Make any edits or adjustments as needed in Luminar Flex. Use Luminar Looks or Workspaces to speed up your editing workflow.

  6. When done, click the Apply button to send the adjusted image back to Photoshop.



Luminar Flex can operate as a Smart Filter in Photoshop. If you designate a Photoshop layer as a Smart Filter, then launch the Luminar Flex as normal to make edits. When you return to Photoshop you can always double-click on the layer and return to Luminar with all edits intact.
