Luminar 2018 updated: Better RAW, plug-in support

Luminar 2018, the Mac photo enhancement application from Skylum, has just received an update to version 1.1.1 that improves on some of the features of the powerful app. The update is free to existing users of Luminar 2018, and can be downloaded and installed by just launching the app and selecting Luminar 2018 > Check for updates from the menu bar.

According to Skylum, the update provides the following improvements:

  • Improved Raw Support: We’ve improved RAW Develop support and added Leica Monochrome .DNG , HEIC formats.  We’ve also improved support for Hasselblad and several other cameras.
  • Photos for Mac: Luminar works even better as an extension for Photos for Mac.
  • Adobe plug-in improvements: The plugins for Adobe products have been performance tuned.
  • Improved cross-platform files: We’ve fixed an issue with the Dodge & Burn filter masks for documents created on Windows.

Luminar 2018 works great with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as with Apple’s default Photos app. It’s available for Mac or PC for just $69.
