Luminar Neo Review | Skylum Reviews(7)

Albert Dros Landscape photographer

For me, Luminar is the best tool to get great results in a simple and fast way. Luminar has lots of features that are very complex but the interface makes it look very easy. My favourite tools in Luminar are the ‘Advanced Contrasts’, the several Glow filters and the Sunrays filter. Luminar lets you go crazy, but then simply drag down the intensity to get the desired result. It’s very intuitive.
