    Easy Learning

    I am a great fan of Nicolesy and her training packages. I am relatively new to Luminar 4 and the Step by Step approach has helped me in overcoming the steep learning curve. The training package is exceptional value for money and is highly recommended for those, like me, who are new to Luminar 4 remarkable software programme.

    Needed: a structured approach

    I have owned a Luminar license since it first came out. Always intrigued by its potential, but not really doing much with it. I would occasionally duck in and try some stuff I read about, but never taking a methodical approach to learning and understanding its true potential. This book is just what I needed to launch into Luminar 4 and stop beating around the bush. It's great, teaching all the editing tools piece by piece. I am very much enjoying this ebook. It's well structured, solidly edited, accompanied by good examples, and good advice. I think that I shall be using Lumiar 4 a great deal more, and I don't need a magic 8 ball to tell me that.

    Replacing The Sky

    I love the new book, Nicole! It is very well written and so easy to follow and understand. I had taken an image during the blue hour, and my vision was to be able to replace the sky with a milky way shot. It worked perfectly using the sky replacement tool - even being able to add some star reflections! I have included both the original and the finished/composite photo.

    The art of making interesting things simple

    Now that I’m using Nicolesy Luminar 4 e-book I realize that it really is a step-by-step guide to an all-in-one, state-of-the-art photo editor and photo organizing software. It comes in a package which includes 5 essential video-tutorials which make things even simpler so that even amateur photographers can do anything they like to improve their shots faster and more easily than ever.

    Luminar 4 ebook.... a real "page turner"

    One often hears the term "page turner" to describe a particularly engrossing novel, but in the case of Nicolesy's "Luminar 4" ebook, I have to also add the term "page turner" to its list of praises. I am a regular user of Luminar, since its early beginnings, and I access it via plug-in through Adobe Lightroom Classic. I thought that I had a pretty good understanding of Luminar, but with the ebook by the side of my cpu, I find myself constantly saying "Huh, I did not know that..." Beautiful examples ( I like the northwest focus) as well as clear and accurate text, will help to make me (and you) even more proficient with Luminar.... and get this, as Luminar incrementally upgrades, Nicolesy is also upgrading the book and associated instructional material...doesn't get any better than that in these times of quarantine....keep healthy and enjoy this wonderful ebook resource!
