    Nicole does her usual fine job of clearly explaining how to enhance your photographs using Luminar 4.3 or earlier versions--explanations are clear and well organized and flow very smoothly--

    Nicole Young's Luminar 4 Step by Step Guide

    There are several guides available including Skylum's own guide to this phot-editing software. This one is different. It takes you through step by step revealing many extremely useful tips and shortcuts not available in other guides and includes a number of how-to videos and presets (called Looks by Skylum). All in all it is a unique, comprehensive and extremely helpful resource.

    A really clear and Excellent guide!

    I really like the way that this book is set up. There is a general overview of each of the tools at first, and the order in which Nicole generally uses them. There is brief information on which aspect of the tool to use, as well as an explanation of why she does it that way. Then we get into the sample images to practice. Very clear and very well done!

    Beautifully Presented and Easy to Follow

    As with all of Nicolesy's books, this is very well thought out and it covers everything you need to know in a clear and easy to follow style. All of the practise images are provided, and I enjoyed following along and seeing the different results that can be achieved with Luminar 4. It's a powerful programme, disguised as something simple, so having a step by step workbook is necessary to know how to use it to it's full potential. The videos are helpful too, combined with the book, and I am thoroughly impressed with how much I have learnt.

    Attractive and Thorough

    No book can cover EVERYTHING, but Nicole hits the highlights and spurs creativity with what she has covered in this book. It was worth the money for me!

    Very good e-book

    It is a very good e-book and everything is clearly explained. Most I appreciate is the step by step instructions you have to do with the photos. Sorry but my English is not very good. I hope you understand what I say

    Her style is clear and concise. Works slower, yay!

    I bought BOTH the Luminar 3 and Luminar 4 training. Oh well, gotta learn anyway. She is present and does not run all over the place like some trainers do. I love her style. I am happy to have purchased this and, accidentally, training for Luminar 3!~
