    I tried a variety of free and paid-for emails at [ https :// skylum. com/nphoto-luminar ] and nothing ever arrived from Skylum.

    Never mind – misspelling in my cut-and-paste buffer found and fixed.

    – – – – –

    Hand on experience:

    1. Registration is arduous BUT I like that they keep a registration at their site so I can re-download stuff ( I will reinstall Aurora, for example ).

    2. They claim to want to organize my pictures … my pictures are NOT disorganized, thank you very much.

    3. They seem to want OpenGL 3.3, and want me to try to update my graphics drivers … I clicked on [ Classic B&W ] when looking at a color image file, and it can’t figure out how to show me this picture in black and white.

    4. It then crashed and exited with an [ Unknown software exception ].

    So good so far for FREE Google Picasa – I’ve yet to see ANY program beat FREE Google Picasa at what FREE Google Picasa does.

    While I appreciate programmers having fun and designing things on THEIR workstations, the real world out here has no such luxuries, and the competition KNOWS all too well what Skylum folks seem to be unaware of, or what Skylum folks hope that we consumers/proprietors are unaware of:

    — FREE IrfanView
    — FREE Google Picasa
    — FREE Adobe Photoshop CS ( look it up )

    … and those have versions for all Windows PCs, or work on all Windows PCs, no special software or drivers needed.

    I’ll reboot and try again, and maybe try another computer.

    One star since there is no place to activate and it doesn’t even work as a trial software. All I get is a place to put my email and none of the menu items work except “language” and “exit”

    So far I have not been able to find where to register the program with the code sent to me. I don’t like jumping through hoops to get software that may or not live up to what the description says. I also do not like having to sign up for newsletters just to be able to get a program that may or may not live up to expectations. I spent half an hour going back and forth confirming my email address and looking for how to register the program. I hope all the program is worth all the nonsense and hoops.

    Same here : it’s “Opps,
    Invalid serial number”. I’ll see if I do get the email. I doubt it but then I won’t care.

    In spite of most of the comments above, I decided to try this one. Had no problem registering, got an email to confirm that my email address is a real one they can send lots of stuff to, then got another one with the license key. Installed software and noted that it said a reboot is required, although the program started anyway. I tried (in the footsteps of Peter Blaise) to view a color photo in B&W, but the program crashed as soon as I double-clicked a photo to open. Ok, time to reboot. That seemed to complete the installation. When I started the program again, a pop-up asked me for the registration key. Entered, done. Program worked very well after that. I particularly like the adjustment boxes below the pic. Select one, like B&W or Mood, or many others, and it contains a slider to adjust how much of that effect to apply. Very fast and simple. I was able to quickly enhance several pics (people, places, game screen shots). I like that you can click on the eye icon to see the original picture, then release it to get back to the adjusted view.

    What needs to be improved: No tool tip text. I assumed the eye icon was for red-eye removal (a similar icon is used for that purpose in many other programs). Nope, don’t know what anything does without accessing and wading through the on-line manual / tutorial videos, or click and see what happens. Detailed online help is needed for complex tasks and understanding the intended flow of the program, but tool tips are so much faster!

    There’s no way to block out a subfolder and its contents from loading into the catalog. My main picture folder has lots of pictures to catalog, and many subfolders, some of which are quite large. I don’t want those large folders slowing down my navigation to other pictures. Also, their idea of organizing seems to be to throw everything into one large virtual folder. It took a while to figure out how to select one folder at a time. But, there’s no way to pick a folder and not its subfolders. So, to be efficient with this software I need to reorganize how my pics are stored. That has a big ripple through my disk backups and how all my other programs are “trained” to look in that top level folder.

    Also, there’s no UNDO button anywhere. Instead you need to open the Image menu, open the Adjustments sub menu and find something called “Reset Adjustments”. Or remember to press Ctrl-Shift-R. I still don’t know if I need to specifically save any adjustments I made, or do I need to be careful when trying things out to ALWAYS remember to reset the adjustments so as to avoid any permanent changes to the picture. I have no easy way to remember that this program behaves differently from most others, and what needs to done whenever I use it. Maybe if it was my only photo ajustment program, but I have many of them. Standards are there for a reason, and when programmers try to get cute and develop unusual ways to accomplish the usual things, it just gets confusing and frustrating. Maybe I should make a program that lets me create a text box to describe such things, and then, anytime I run a program it will display my text if it exists for that program. “Mr.Dave, remember to use Shift-Ctrl-R to reset any changes”. Anyway, I like the program overall. It does a few different things than Picassa, but Picassa is so much faster and easier to control.

    Reports in the second return letter the code, is installed, asks e-mail, you enter and everything!
    After installation, you browse 9 prompts, close yourself, restart, click File and immediately jump out the white window, after pressing OK or closing – immediately collapses the program, and after restart, already the third, in the File menu of the section Activation is no longer present!
    A whole lie about free registration, inflation and deception.

    Yes, it’s really a shame: for once, this was a software that deserves to be downloaded, far from the trifle offered these last few days here, and for lack of luck, impossible to obtain a license or to implement it .
    We hope we can take advantage of this offer again, and rightly this time.
