Coming in December, 2018 is my Mastering Luminar 3 Online Course, an update to my Mastering Luminar 2018 Course.
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.
An entire Chapter in this course (Chapter 6) is completely dedicated to Libraries with videos on importing, setting up catalogs, adding folders & albums, rate your photos, and more!
Luminar 3 with Libraries also presents us with different workflow possibilities and I will explore that too.

“Matt, I have been working through your Luminar on line course and really enjoy it and appreciate what you have provided.”
“Hi Matt, first I want to tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed your Mastering Luminar 2018 course. While it would have been helpful to have the course in its totality when I first purchased Luminar 2018, there is something to be said in viewing the course material after having some time to first become familiar with the software. I have learned many things from your videos that I was unaware of and I particularly enjoyed Chapters 7 and 10. I think Luminar is a great product which has boosted my photography enthusiasm... keep up the good work.”
I have a Windows computer. Is this course for me?
It sure is! While the majority of this course is recorded with a Mac, I recorded specific videos on a Windows computer when needed to show any differences in Luminar between the 2 platforms. This course is designed for both Mac & Windows users.
Skylum says they are providing free Luminar Updates throughout most of 2019. Will you provide free course updates as well?
Yes - my Luminar 2018 course is currently being updated for my upcoming Luminar 3 course. Anyone who is enrolled in my Luminar 2018 course will be upgraded for FREE to my Luminar 3 course.
How is the quality of the audio and video?
Videos are recorded in HD 1080p and I use professional audio equipment so you can see and hear clearly. Feel free to sign up for a free course trial to check it out before purchasing.
What is your experience with Luminar?
I use it all the time on my photos and have been using Luminar since it first came out. Actually even before it first came out as I am on Skylum's beta team and help report bugs and suggest new features to them. This is my 2nd "Mastering Luminar" course, as I recorded a shorter course for the original version. You may also have seen me in a number of webinars and Facebook Live events I have done with Skylum and you may have seen some of my writings on their blog. Suffice it to say, I have a LOT of experience with Luminar :)
