Macphun Announces Luminar Raw Processing & Image Editing Software

I have been searching for quite some time now for the perfect software for beginners and professionals to use in editing their raw photo files, especially important given I have resumed teaching photography. 

Then an announcement appeared from Macphun, the software company responsible for Aurora HDR, Creative Kit and, in a previous incarnation, the now free Nik Collection of which my favourite is Viveza.

Although I have not seen a beta of Luminar or anything about it yet other than Macphun’s Luminar announcement page, based on the many positive traits of the company’s other software, this has the potential to be one of the best image editors and raw processors on the market.

According to Macphun:

To make a long story short, it is a truly complete photo editing powerhouse. … Luminar pre-order starts on the 2nd of November. And the launch is scheduled for November 17.

Time will tell!

Meanwhile, Macphun has released a sneak peak web page and video.
