Luminar 3.1.2 Released

Luminar 3.1.2 Released

There is a new version of Luminar available today. The latest point point release has a few new features as well as some bug fixes and performance enhancements. Note that this is the full version of Luminar as opposed to Luminar Flex.

Here’s what the release notes say:

"On This Day" feature. Photographs are all about memories. With the latest update, we let you see what pictures you took on this day in past years. To walk down memory lane with Luminar, simply click "On This Day" in the Shortcuts panel. Please note that the "On This Day" feature will only show up if you have photos in your Library taken on the current month and day in previous years.

Improved Import from flash card. Luminar 3 now brings you the fastest importing from your flash card ever. Less time waiting and more time for creativity!

Support for Nik Collection plugins. Now you can easily add plugins from the Nik Collection to your workflow and fully enjoy what they offer alongside all the tools in Luminar 3.

Overall performance and stability improvements. Improving Luminar's performance is one of our team's top priorities. With every new update, we try our best to make Luminar faster and more seamless so you can have amazing potential to express your creativity.

I haven’t tested any of these features yet, but once I do, If I discover anything of note, I’ll be sure to let you know! I did have a quick play around with the software, and anecdotally, it does seem to be a bit faster at loading images than before, but I haven’t done any scientific testing.

Don’t forget that if you do want to get Luminar, you can use my affiliate discount code: TFP10 to get $10 off.
