Raw Converter

To newcomers, shooting in RAW file format can seem intimidating at first. But there are endless reasons to shoot in RAW—especially when it comes to editing your images!   And Luminar makes it an effective as well as simple process.

Don’t be wary just because RAW files are larger, and come out of the camera looking a little less polished. This is because they capture all the data recorded by the sensor when you take a photo. The benefit? This gives you full control of details in post-production, and a higher quality end result! Luminar makes it easy—it offers an automatic RAW converter, and also all the tools necessary to get the most from your editing.

How to edit and convert RAW files in Luminar

It’s simple to convert a RAW file in Luminar.  Just go to “File” and “Open” like you would for any image.  Upon opening, you’ll notice that Luminar will slightly convert the RAW photo with the follow effects: Denoise, Highlights improvement, Auto tone and Autotune.  This will give you a great starting point for RAW editing.  Let’s say you’ve uploaded a shot of a landscape.  The first thing you might want to do is pull up the shadows—you’ll be surprised at how much more foreground detail can be revealed!  You can also pull up the exposure without overblowing the highlights in the sky. You can further pull back sky detail by pulling down the highlights, or adding a polarizing filter.

Bring Dimension

To convert a RAW in the best possible way, it’s up to your discretion, but it should be added that manually bringing back dimension into this style format might be necessary.  There is a lot of information in RAW format, so at first it might seem a bit muted. But you can bring the dimension out in whatever way you choose! Use contrast, curve filters, play with the black tones or add an HSL Filter to personally select which colors you’d like to really pop! Sharpening tools will also be highly effective on this type of file.

Also, just as important, you can convert the white-balance to the exact tone you’d like in the overall scene as well! You can adjust a RAW file just the same as any image—only with much more control and finesse.

Export to Your Needs

After you’re finished, you can convert the image to suit your specific needs.  To convert it go to “File,” then “Export,” and then choose from: JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIF, Photoshop or PDF.  This allows you maximum control in the outcome, use and size of your creations. Give it a try!
