Custom Workspaces for Luminar

Functional Workspaces For Editing Any Image

Luminar from Macphun: A full-featured plug-in with lots of Nik DNA.

Macphun’s Luminar software is a full-fledged image editor. It’s got 41 different filters, ranging from the basic (brightness/contrast) to special effects (Orton Effect). Workspaces allow you to customize starting points in Luminar by saving groups of filters together without any settings applied. This feature allows you to quickly access groups of filters and apply their effects to any image using settings you control.

Read my primer for getting started with Luminar

I’ve created four custom workspaces for use with Macphun’s Luminar. You can download them for free; simply use the “add to cart” button and follow the free checkout process and you’ll get a download link sent to you.

Windows users can download the Luminar Public Beta for free

My workspaces are built to give you access to the most commonly used tools in Luminar, grouped by functionality. Rather than subject-specific tools, my workspaces are effective on any type of photograph. I recommend using them in the following order, each in their own layer:

  • Tone: Adjust exposure, contrast, shadows & highlights
  • Color: Work with saturation, hue, and color contrast
  • Detail: Enhance details and create unique textured effects by combining the power of multiple detail enhancement filters.
  • Finishing effects: Add unique styles to your images, from glow effects to vignettes
