Luminar: Pay less for award-winning photo editing

Luminar is the award-winning photo editing software taking the market by storm, and it's a fraction of the cost of it's competitors.
May 16, 2018

For professional or amateur photographers, the right editing software can transform a good picture into a profitable picture. Even into an award-winning picture.

To make this a reality you need professional editing software. You may already be paying big subscription fees for Photoshop or Lightroom, when you could be getting an edge with Skylum Luminar 2018. You can get a perpetual licence as part of their Jupiter offer for just $69.

Previously an Apple App, Luminar has rapidly developed over the last 18 months into one of the most prestigious photo editing tools on the market. It’s now available for both PC and MAC.


In the last iteration of the Luminar alone, improvements can be made 300% faster. Imperfections can be corrected quicker. The image rendering quality is absolutely cutting edge. Precision color translation can be achieved through dcp profiles.

For MAC and PC, this award-winning software is arguably the best photo-editing package on the market.

It’s tempting to be sceptical at such claims, until you look at the comparisons of Skylum Luminar v Adobe Lightroom for yourself. Luminar completely outclasses Lightroom in terms of features, and costs a fraction of the price.


If you’ve already got projects on the go using Adobe, don’t let that stop you taking the step up. The Adobe plug-ins you’ve already invested in can easily be incorporated into Luminar 2018.

The Jupiter offer also includes $200 worth of bonus tutorials and additions.

Here’s what else you get with Luminar:

  • Make fantastic aerial photos – Video tutorial by Matt Granger
  • Make incredible landscapes – Video tutorial by Daniel Kordan
  • 119 custom sky overlays: from dramatic to romantic
  • The complete landscape Photo eBook by Photzy
  • Splitsville – exclusive preset pack by Brian Matiash

Lightroom would set you back somewhere in the region of $120 per year for a subscription. Despite the clear deluge of extra features Luminar boasts, you pay a one-off fee of just $69. For an award-winning service, it seems like a no-brainer for us.
