Luminar Neo 1.2.0: HDR Merge extension, dodge & burn tool, bug fixes, and stability improvements

General Updates


MacOS

In the new Luminar Neo 1.2.0 Update, we introduce extensions — paid professional features that expand the capabilities of Luminar Neo. The first extension we’re releasing is HDR Merge, which can merge up to 10 exposure-bracketed images into a single HDR photo. HDR Merge delivers a spectacular level of color enhancement, making the final result look as close as possible to what the human eye can see. 

Also, something we know you’ve been waiting for — the Dodge & Burn tool is finally available in Luminar Neo with this update. We are committed to enhancing the experience of Luminar artists with quality of life features and improvements. Here is a list of the latest enhancements (more are on the way).

  • Add Tools to Favorites with visible animation on macOS
  • Rotate & Flip any photo from the Catalog
  • New interface for the EXIF panel
  • New interface for the catalog header
  • Export 8-bit and 16-bit PNG images
  • Improved Spanish localization

Thanks to feedback from our artists, we fixed another list of bugs.

Bug fixes:

  • Empty trash button is now available for any number of photos selected.
  • Added folders display the correct number of photos.
  • White balance color preset is now updated for every new opened image.
  • Strokes in Masking mode are applied to the image in the Erase Tool after the previous edited image is removed from the folder.
