8 reviews for The Photographer’s Guide to Luminar 4

  • 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.

    Pretty good book, and has helped me understand some of the more obscure possibilities of Luminar 4; then again, I’ve been using Luminar and Aurora since they first came out. Great software, and this is a good book for beginners to intermediate users.

    Steve D. The book is well written, clear and concise. It covers the subject in-depth and will be a good addition to my learning library.

  • It’s now possible to download the walkthrough images in chapters 3 and 4, thanks to feedback from readers. The link is now in the introductory chapter of the ebook. Or, contact Rocky Nook customer service if you purchased a print book for the link.

    I must admit to a bias- Jeff Carlson has written books about Mac apps and iWatch so I was already a fan. This book about the many different editing tools and workflows for Luminar4 has been extremely helpful in getting a rookie like me started. The writing is crisp and clear – and the examples he has provided ( I have just begun to work with them) seem to provide a good template for my own efforts. As an added benefit – he has just given two webinars demonstrating some of the concepts he has written about – enhancing my understanding. In summary, this book is a really good way to learn how to use this program
