Are Other Videos Planned for this Course?

They sure are!!

In October new videos will appear in a new Chapter 12 Creative Enhancements that will include topics such as Black and White, Texture Blending, Working with LUT's, and more. 

In addition, each time Skylum continues to update Luminar 2018 for free I will have new videos discussing any new features or enhancements they made to the program.

On November 1 for example Skylum will be releasing a new filter called AI Sky Enhancer and I will have a video covering it.

Later this year Skylum will be releasing their Luminar Library and I will have an entire Chapter devoted to it.

Skylum has said they will not have a paid upgrade to Luminar until later in 2019, and as such I will continue to add to this course for as long as Skylum continues to update the current version of Luminar for free.
