MacPhun Releases Luminar Photo Editor for Mac

Macphun who have a good range of applications for image processing have just released their latest offering: Luminar, a photo editor. This follows some of the style of earlier apps that I already use from Macphun, most notably Tonality (and Tonality Pro) and Intensify. Luminar is currently on offer priced at $59 for those who order early.

When working on an image, the user has a number of preset filters available, along with tools that allow infinite adjustments. I have just installed this and am pleased to find I can work with Luminar as a standalone app, as a plug-in to Aperture (there are also plugins for Adobe software) and as an extension in Apple's photos. In each case the interface is the same, so there is no overhead in learning to use the application in different guises.

I will be examining this further in the next few days.
