Anybody trying it out? I got it as during a pre-order discount, but have only just now had time to start to play with it. So far I'm finding lots to like about the actual editing, but am not happy about the file sizes when saving in their native format. 35mb RAW file from a EOS M5 with a Denoise layer and a Erase layer and some filters became over 300mb in size. Saving at a TIFF is a more normal TIFF size of ~100mb, but you lose the history and the layer info. And I still have the original RAW file. So you can end up with three or more versions lying around. The original RAW, the Luminar native with edits, and whatever format(s) you need for sharing/online.
- easy editing
- plugins for many other tools
- sharing to online hosts/sites built in
- large native file size
- sharing tools seem to lose EXIF info (did when I exported to SmugMug)
Looking at it, it seems like I was complaining a lot, but I really do like how it works. I suspect I'll still do most of my work in Lightroom, but I can see me working on select images in Luminar.
