This new Mastering Luminar 3 Online Course will feature a ton of new content, with the first few Course Chapters in particular being completely re-recorded to showcase Luminar 3. 

Skylum's new Luminar 3 is the first to contain Libraries and catalogs. It features a browser to view, search for and rate your images, then Edit them using all of our familiar Luminar filters and tools.
