Luminar 2018 and Aurora HDR 2018 Updated


Skylum (formerly Macphun) is continuing to update their software aggressively for Windows and OSX. They currently support most Fujifilm X cameras, but we are still waiting for Fujifilm X-E3 support. You can get a copy of Luminar 2018 here and save with the code FUJIADDICT. Similarly, you can get Aurora HDR 2018 here and save with the code FUJIADDICT.

Don’t forget that Luminar 2018 will receive a free digital asset manager update this year that allows you to better manage your files. You can see the preview of DAM below and the updates to the Luminar 2018 andAurora HDR 2018.
