MacPhun continues to prove they are deadly serious about contending in the photo editing space with a new version called Neptune - and yes it's a free update!
New Feature Highlights: Luminar Neptune:
Topaz Labs has launched Topaz Studio. It is a photo editor, extensive effect toolbox and powerful creative playground, Topaz Studio gives you fast results with Topaz's exclusive image processing technology, in an intuitive, affordable, easy-to-use application.
I have been working on the BETA of this application and I can tell you that the first thing I noticed about it is that it is fast. You can achieve amazing results with hundreds of 1-click effects. It offers RAW image support, automated lens correction, and other integrated tools.
Achieve professional results with Topaz’s exclusive image processing technology in compact easy to use effects and adjustments. Each adjustment is a plugin unto itself, from adaptive contrast, to unique color controls, more powerful than Photoshop's adjustment layers.
Its also very easy to use. Topaz Studio is built to be flexible. Effortlessly create an endless variety of looks by adding, blending, masking, rearranging, and replacing adjustments to create drastically different effects in an instant.
Want to know more? You can watch an intro video that covers all the major aspects of the new product and gives you insight into the Topaz Studio Workflow.

This is a teaching shot I made nine years ago in the Palouse. It is deliberately under-exposed so I could use it in a book on post-processing.
This is the same shot completely post-processed in MacPhun Luminar. It took me less than 45 seconds. Proof is in the pudding as they say.
If you want your own copy of Luminar, visit http://bit.ly/MacPhunSoftware. I can save you $10 - use the code PHOTOPLUGINS - it's probably the best post-processing software for the money that you can buy. Sorry Mac only for now but this year they say a Windows version will drop.
I wrote an article for the MacPhun blog on speeding up your workflow in Luminar. Check it out.
I've been doing some training on Macphun Luminar and created some free workspaces and presets. In case you would like copies here they are. And if you need to buy your own copy of MacPhun Luminar visit http://bit.ly/MacPhunSoftware and use the code PHOTOPLUGINS for $10 off. Enjoy.
UPDATE: I have changed the link to the files for the workspaces and presets to a Dropbox link. While dozens of people were able to download the files as I originally shared them, six people couldn't access them so I am trying this method.
