And more new filters…

Dodge & Burn.

These tools simulate traditional techniques used by darkroom photographers, you can use dodge & burn to nondestructively refine the light and shadows of a photo.

Hue Shift.

This photo editing filter lets you roll the hue in a photo for subtle or dramatic changes. A little is perfect to eliminate unwanted color tints while a big adjustment is perfect for dramatic style.

Brilliance / Warmth.

Add rich color and magic warmth to any scene with this responsive non-destructive filter. Alternatively, you can use negative values to tone down an image for a more subtle look.

Lens flaws no more
with lens correction
and transform tools.

Why settle for imperfections caused by your camera or lens, when Luminar 2018 makes it easy to eliminate even the toughest problems. The Lens Correction tool easily fixes all kinds of lens distortion, from barrel and pincushion to chromatic aberration and vignetting right in your photo editor.

And with Perspective Correction, you can tilt the image in three dimensions as well as rotate to compensate for a poor or restricted shooting angle.
