A First Look at Slylum's Luminar 3: Now with a Library Panel

Gary Detonnancourt

Skylum will not be releasing the new version Luminar 3 until December 18th and my course will not be finished for awhile after this release date. Therefore, I have decided to create a pre-sale bundle where you can purchase the Luminar 3 course now before it’s even been created at a deeply discounted price. This will help with the development of the course and since I want you to get plenty of value from my courses, I’ve decided to add three of my most popular courses to this bundle as a special pre-sale bonus. This four-course bundle will include:

  • Luminar 3

  • Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lightroom

  • F**k the Rules, Your Composition Your Way

  • Learn to Create More than a Snapshot Photography Course

The pre-sale Black Friday price is $50 and you can click here to purchase this bundle.

If you don’t currently own Luminar you can purchase it now during their black Friday deal by clicking here. Since your purchasing it now you will get the upgrade to Luminar 3 free when it’s released on December 18th. They are also offering many bonuses with this sale that you can check out on their sales page.

If you decide to buy it use the coupon code “SNAPSHOT” to get $10 off.

Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday Deals

Gary Detonnancourt

Happy Thanksgiving! I’d like to take a moment to say how thankful I am for all of you that visit my website and support my courses. I enjoy making content for you and I hope you find it useful. I have big plans for the upcoming year, including the release of a new course on about Luminar 2019. This is a program that I have been using quite a bit lately and it has impressed me as a possible alternative to Adobe Lightroom.

Skylum will not be releasing the new version of Luminar until December 8th and my course will not be finished for awhile after this release date. Therefore, I have decided to create a pre-sale bundle where you can purchase the Luminar 2019 course now before it’s even been created at a deeply discounted price. This will help with the development of the course and since I want you to get plenty of value from my courses, I’ve decided to add three of my most popular courses to this bundle as a special pre-sale bonus. This four-course bundle will include:

  • Luminar 2019

  • Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lightroom

  • F**k the Rules, Your Composition Your Way

  • Learn to Create More than a Snapshot Photography Course

The pre-sale Black Friday price is $50 and you can click here to purchase this bundle.

If you don’t currently own Luminar you can purchase it now during their black Friday deal by clicking here. Since your purchasing it now you will get the upgrade to Luminar 2019 free when it’s released on December 8th.

PS if you read the blog post called Topaz Studio Vs Luminar Quick Edits you can get links to Topaz’s Black Friday Deals. I highly recommend the AI Bundle, I think AI Clear is the best new software I’ve seen in a long time.
