There’s no doubt that Skylum Software’s Luminar is one of the most powerful and popular Lightroom alternatives when it comes to actually editing photos. Whilst I test a great many applications so that I am knowledgeable for my work on Shutter Muse, Luminar is the only one that seems regular usage outside of my usual Lightroom and Photoshop routines.
The major thing that has been lacking from Luminar is some form of asset management. Continuous updates to Luminar over the last couple of years have brought the editing side of things up to a very high standard, but for many people it has still been hard to completely pull the plug from Lightroom because they need a way to organize their photos.
Skylum have been very open about the fact that a DAM (digital asset management) update was in development, and will be available as a free update to existing customers when it becomes available at a later date this year. Now, we are getting a second little teaser of things to come in a new video that the company has just shared.
This video appears to be just a small tease of the overall interface, rather than an actual look at any of the main features, but it’s nice to see things are still headed towards a 2018 release for this update.
Remember, you can save $10 on your copy of Luminar by using the coupon code “shuttermuse10″ and the DAM update will be free to all existing users when it becomes available.
