what i have seen so far barely justifies the word "library".....

maybe they surprise me at the last minute but what i have seen so far it´s not even close to LR digital asset management features.

Do they have a mobile version? I just upgraded my tablet to the iPad Pro for Lightroom CC on the go. Liking it so far, but I recommend getting a wireless drive

This is their very first version which I think they will admit is not even close to Lr's DAM and they admit this is not a DAM system yet. Skylum has released a time table of future capabilities. I for one am going to wait and see how this develops.

With 90,000 images in my LR library, a new DAM system is going to have to do my laundry and make me breakfast in bed before I seriously consider the task of moving to something else. This certainly isn't it. I can access Luminar from within LR and PS if I decide the tools are better.

Luminar 3 is a great software. Just processed my first album. DAM was a reason I bought Luminar 2 and boy waiting was worth it:). I have 77226 pictures on my catalog and managing or even selecting pictures for processing is not easy without DAM. I recommend Luminar 3 for anyone looking RAW processor with DAM.
