    Just downloaded Luminar for Windows beta from here: Luminar for Windows (beta) is live! Try it free today.

    So far, I find it is pretty interesting.

    With a couple of clicks, I was able to go from here:

    To this:

    The interface is a little like dealing with a mime -- little pictures and symbols indicate what things do, but so far, I'm liking it.

    Cheers, Jock

    Downloaded it myself, but haven't done anything with it yet.

    I've had the Mac version for a while and really like it. Some processes are slower than LR, but you can get some very nice presets. I am also trying to replicate some of my favourite presets from LR and the Nik tools; it's a slow job though.

    Interestingly, I have also been using it, plus i landed AuroraHDR as well as a freebie in something, but I generally go with the Creative Kit plugins, instead.

    I'm not sure what's happening with the creative kit stuff. Is Luminar replacing them all? (apart from Aurora HDR which is getting yet another upgrade shortly).
