What is Luminar?

Luminar for beginners is user-friendly, but it’s also powerful enough for professionals too. You can import single images, or larger projects, very easily using the library function.

One of the best features in Luminar is AI Sky Replacement. With one click of a button, you can replace a boring sky in your image with a more dramatic one! No fiddly editing is required!

There’s something for everyone in Luminar. Whether you just want to learn how to edit your photographs, remove blemishes from portraits, or liven up your landscapes, Luminar has you covered.

Below is an introduction video, showcasing four of the best features in Luminar. We also have an exclusive iPhotography Luminar for Beginners online photo editing course.
