Skylum’s Luminar 4 is a great solution for both professional and amateur photographers who want to quickly create stunning photos. Luminar’s advanced AI-based tools eliminate hours of traditional editing tasks, whether you’re applying automatic tone and color adjustments, replacing dreary skies with more dynamic ones, or retouching portraits to smooth skin, remove blemishes, and accentuate flattering facial features. For those who want to dig into editing, powerful tools give you full control over your RAW and JPEG images, including advanced features such as layers, masks, blend modes, and lens correction. Luminar also works as a plug-in for other applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, and Apple Photos, allowing round-trip editing and seamless integration with workflows you may already have in place.
Luminar 4 is deceptively deep, and in The Photographer’s Guide to Luminar 4, photographer Jeff Carlson helps you discover Luminar 4’s best features to take full advantage of the program for all your photography needs. From importing your images to editing, managing, and exporting your files, Jeff showcases the power, precision, and control of Luminar while teaching you to work quickly and efficiently. In this book, he walks you through real-world landscape and portrait edits, and covers every tool and feature with the goal of helping you understand how to make Luminar improve your images.

I purchased the ebook for this title the other day and I have found it to be very good. I have now read the first two chapters and I’ve learned quite a few things that I’ve not gathered simply from using Luminar 4 and its previous versions. When I turned the page to chapter 3 however, I expected to find a link to download the example image so I could follow along as the author walked me through the process of editing it. I was surprised and disappointed to find nothing and wasted quite a bit of time trying to see if I had missed that link in the pages I had already read or if perhaps it was contained in some appendix at the end. Unfortunately, I could find nothing. The lack of example images is my reason for giving only 4 stars for what otherwise seems to be quite a good book. I admit I made this purchase from Amazon rather than directly from the publisher since photography books are usually too large to easily get into Kindle.
