During these weeks of confinement we are seeing how many developers are offering their tools for free, and today we are going to add a really interesting app to this list.
It’s called ‘Luminar 3’, and it has been developed by Skylum. Many call this application the “Lightroom killer”, as it is a good alternative to the Adobe tool and at a very attractive price. If you are interested in using a free and open source application, Darktable is the most recommended for any desktop operating system.
A “hybrid” between Lightroom and Photoshop
Now we can save us the 70 dollars that it usually costs, and download it for free for both macOS and Windows. We will simply have to go to this page and enter our email and thus get the serial number that allows us to unlock it.
A positive point is that within the Luminar website we can find a section with video tutorials that will teach us to use different aspects of this tool: control light, clone or delete elements, fix color balance or exposure problems.
One of the most applauded features of this software is that allows us to edit our photos in layers, offering a hybrid experience between two Adobe apps: Photoshop and Lightroom.
As with Lightroom, Luminar 3 offers us the possibility of edit photos in .RAW in a fast way, at the same time that we manage our entire image library.
Let’s not forget that to use Lightroom you have to pay the monthly subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This was one of the reasons why many users flocked to Luminar.
If you are looking for an alternative or perhaps save the money of that monthly subscription, now may be the time to download this alternative and test if you are interested in taking the leap (or simply get the serial for a future in which you may need it).
