This $29 Adobe Lightroom alternative uses AI to perfect photo edits

Whether you're an aspiring Instagram influencer or just someone who's really passionate about what they're eating for lunch, there are plenty of reasons to pick up photography. And, while shooting images is intuitive enough, editing them is a different story. In a market saturated with complex image editing platforms, Luminar 3 offers an easy alternative.

This award-winning photography software utilizes AI to make editing faster and more intuitive, without compromising your creative vision. Available on Mac and Windows, the app is currently available to download for only $29 via the AlterNet Store.

In most photography apps, you can spend hours pushing around individual sliders to achieve your desired results. In contrast, Luminar 3 has a feature called Accent AI 2.0 which combines many adjustments into a single slider. This smart technology allows you to enhance skies and add punch to your RAW files in seconds.

With the basic edits completed, Luminar 3 provides you with a selection of 70 instant looks. Crafted by professional photographers, these one-click presets should help your images stand out from the crowd.

If you prefer to take full creative control, you can do that, too. Luminar 3 has all the features you would expect from a pro-level photo editor, including RAW conversion, exposure fine tuning, and even custom lighting effects.

Luminar 3 is normally priced at $69. With this deal, you can get the software on a lifetime license for just $29.
