Black & White in LUMINAR 4


In this video, I demonstrate my Black & White processing workflow when using Luminar 4. Along the way I give tips on how to adjust the white and black point, noise reduction, detail, and numerous other sliders.

I encourage you to try Luminar 4 out first before you purchase it. Visit Skylum’s website at the link below:

At the top of the page, hover over the word “Luminar” – a menu should open and you can download the trial version from there. It is a fully working trial that expires in 15 days.
