Skylum updates Luminar to add DNG profiles, faster raw editing

Skylum has issued update 1.3.0 to its Luminar 2018 software, which adds DNG Camera Profiles and improvements to raw and batch processing.

The update brings Luminar for Windows further in line with the MacOS version, adding the industry standard DNG Camera Profiles for processing DNG raw files.

There’s also a new white balance tool with an eyedropper for precise colour corrections and a set of new Image Transformation controls.

Other enhancements for the Windows version are the ability to rename layers, LUT mapping and enhanced filter performance.

Mac users will find improved handling of the Lens and Transform effects. Skylum says it has also resolved a number of bugs reported by users.

Both Mac and Windows versions now have real-time preview when sharpening images.

Luminar 1.3.0 on MacOS also has new plugin support. You can now install and access Imagenomic Noiseware 5, Imagenomic Portraiture 3, Imagenomic Realgrain 2, and DxO FilmPack 5 in Luminar under the Plugins menu.

Skylum says it will also soon be releasing its digital asset manager, which will be integrated into Luminar 2018. The company plans a series of beta tests before it is rolled out in a free update to the software.
