I Know I’ve Been M.I.A. But….

Less than 48 hours to save $10 and snag those pre-order bonuses

I know I’ve been missing in action but I’ve been busy as ever!

I’m so excited about all the new photo editing software that has been coming out. So much so, I’ve rededicated myself to creating even better content on things besides Lightroom and Photoshop but don’t worry, I’m not abandoning Lightroom and Photoshop — on the contrary, my future videos will be better than ever.

First up is Luminar

I’m in the middle of creating a series of videos that will teach you Luminar from the ground up. Like all my videos, they’ll be FREE. My goal is to get all of them up on YouTube later in the week, in time for the official launch of Luminar 2018. I’ll also make the RAW files available along with a custom set of Morganti Luminar 2018 Presets and a humongous set of Morganti LUT files for Luminar 2018.

If you’re not familiar with Luminar, Luminar 2018 offers everything a modern photographer needs for photo editing, including new filters powered by artificial intelligence, major speed improvements, a dedicated RAW develop module and a forthcoming in 2018; digital asset management platform. Also, Luminar 2018 will work on both Mac and Window computers!

Users will also benefit from the new intelligent Sun Rays filterLUT support, and real-time noise removal. With workspaces that match different styles of editing, Luminar adapts to deliver a complete experience that avoids clutter and complexity.

Luminar 2018 has been re-built from the ground up for dramatic performance boosts. Existing filters deliver richer colors and depth in less time. A brand new streamlined user interface speeds up working with presets, filters, and masks. With the full support of pro options like layers, masks, and blending modes, complex repairs and photo composites can be easily accomplished.

Luminar 2018 will be available for pre-order on November 1, and released on November 16.

I’m undecided about what to do next

Next week, I’ll do the same treatment — Videos, RAW files and presets for either Aurora HDR or ON1 Photo RAW 2018. Let me know what you’d like me to do first with the other to follow a week or so later. After both Aurora HDR and ON1 Photo RAW 2018 are done, I’ll be doing the same thing for Topaz Studio. This should be fun!


Don’t fret Lightroom and Photoshop users

I’m not stretching each of the series out by doing one video a week — I’m going to record then post the entire series at once and when done, I’ll be doing the same thing for the new Lightroom Classic CC and the all-new Lightroom CC. I’ll also be continuing my Photoshop series.


But wait! That’s not all!

Because of your kindness — those of you that made donations or became my Patreon as well as those that use my affiliate links and discount codes or purchased my Lightroom presets, because of all of you, I’ve been able to purchase a camera gimbal, wireless microphone, and zoom sound recorder so that I can create photography how-to videos in the field. Pretty soon you’ll see videos of me explaining and demonstrating various photographic techniques. Thank you all who support me!
