To walk down memory lane with Luminar, simply click "On This Day" in the Shortcuts panel. Please note that the "On This Day" feature will only show up if you have photos in your Library taken on the current month and day in previous years.

Overall performance and stability improvements. Improving Luminar's performance is one of our team's top priorities. With every new update, we try our best to make Luminar faster and more seamless so you can have amazing potential to express your creativity.

Improved launch time. Now, starting from the second launch, the average launch time for Luminar is significantly faster. Even if you have hundreds of thousands of photos in your Library.
Faster album creation. In this update, we've boosted the speed of Luminar when creating new albums with large numbers of photos.
Accent AI 2.0. An improved algorithm that makes this a go-to filer. New "human-aware" technology recognizes people in your photos and applies adjustments selectively for more realistic images.
RAW + JPEG pairs. When you import Raw and JPEG pairs, you can decide which files to see. View just Raw or JPEG for a less cluttered library, or see both and use the JPEG file as a reference as you edit. Edits to each file are independent but can be easily synced. Use the View menu to control which images are shown for a clutter-free library.
Selective sync adjustments. Once you've created the perfect style, apply it to all shots in your series with the improved Adjustment Sync. You can now select multiple photos and apply the same adjustments in just one click. Filters and Looks are transferred instantly, while image-specific changes like cloning and cropping are ignored.

NEW AI Sky Enhancer
The AI Sky Enhancer allows you to get beautiful skies almost instantly with artificial intelligence and a single slider. Luminar analyzes and detects the sky in an image to improve the texture, tone, and colors of the sky itself. The filter can recognize sky in most photos as well as distinguish between water and other elements in a photograph. It also detects the objects in the foreground and their edges for perfect masking.
Note: If the controls are grayed out after applying the filter, the artificial intelligence couldn’t recognize the sky in the photo. Skies that are very out of focus or blurred may not be detected automatically. It may also be grayed out if the filter determines that the sky does not need enhancement. If you want to stylize the sky, explore filters such as Golden Hour, Polarizer, Vibrancy, and HSL.
Luminosity Masks. Improved performance when opening up existing documents with Luminosity masks
TIFF Files. Increased stability exporting TIFF files with 8 bits per channel bit depth
Filters B&W Conversion, Bi-Color Toning, Photo Filter. The controls Luminance and Saturation are available when these filters are added a second time
