Luminar is the world’s first photo editor that adapts to your style & skill level. It is designed to make complex photo editing easy & enjoyable for everyone. Take advantage of over 300 powerful, yet simple photo editing tools that allow you to perform all kind of image editing tasks.

Here's a short video of Luminar in action by Jim Nix.

Luminar is suitable for any skill level.

New photographers and mobile shooters will appreciate a simple approach using one-click presets and universal tools like cropping, noise reduction and object removal.

While casual photographers may start with those same presets, but will soon “graduate” to using Luminar’s purpose-built workspaces, powerful photo filters, editing brushes and smart controls.

For passionate enthusiasts and professionals, workspaces and the full gamut of editing tools such as masking, layers, blending modes, texture overlays, editing history menu and much more herald a new generation of advanced photo enhancement possibilities.

All-in-all, Luminar is here to introduce the brand new picture editing experience for everyone, who wants to make beautiful photos. Check out this Luminar user manual to discover how to get the most from this photo editor.
