About this deal

***Please be PATIENT - do NOT expire the deal if the emailed code takes longer than expected to arrive***
Their similar Luminar deal was on for 30 days last year, I have posted this only a day after it went live on 11.12.22.

Well, last Dec2021 it was their previous version Luminar 4 for free - this time it's their newer version Luminar AI (Update 5), via the German PC/Tech magazine CHIP.de just like last year...

Click the main 'Get deal' link or follow this link, enter your details & click on Submit: skylum.com/l/c…-ai

Main website to view more info, features, etc: skylum.com/lum…-ai

Download links for PC & MAC are included in the email you receive with your unique registration code (every unique email address seems to receive a unique code)
If you need to install it more than once - as in a 2nd system & activated on both simultaneously - then you will need to request a 2nd code with a different email address (& so on...)

    Not a heavy video editor but have had GIMP for a while, which is free. How much better is this than GIMP?
    Perhaps read / watch a review or two, best way to compare is to try it out yourself.
    It is being offered for free for a limited time, so grab the licence & download for now & try it sometime later if you don't have the time at present.

    Longterm review...

    I think the Luminar software is excellent, been using it a while including the version 4 and this AI version. Their development is now on the NEO version, hence I guess why they are giving this away free. Despite being slightly older, I would say that this software will easily exceed what most people would want from a photo editing package.

    Its very under-rated software this. Thanks for posting, I use 4 currently but didn't know about this offer.
    This offer has only existed since yesterday
    I delayed posting it as there seemed to be a glitch on the offer page - it was not accepting one's details, seems to be ok today.

    How long was it taking for people to get the link emailed through?
    Same here - waiting several hours.
    Checked spam/junk folder - nothing.

    This is a really nice gesture from Skylum for a fantastic but of software, but I think it's worth mentioning that the team is based in Ukraine so while it is being offered for free, please consider buying/donating!!!

    Did you get the email straight away or you had to wait a bit before receiving it? It's been more than 30 minutes and still nothing...
    I had an issue where I wasn't getting anything through to my gmail address, tried it with my outlook email address and it came through within about 30 seconds.

    Definitely worth trying an alternate email address if you're having issues.

    I guess Anna is manually sending out codes when she is in office. Got mine today morning too.

    The only email I get is from Olga at Skylum who offers me Neo for £6 a month. She didn't reply to my Gmail account.

    I did get last years offer of Luminar 4 for free so maybe Olga knows I'm trying for another freebie.

    I think this should be expired, a couple of lucky people managed to get it, but it's dead in the water as things stand

    Got the last version luminar 4 for drone pictures and it's an amazing bit of kit. The fact they dump ai for free to move onto pastures new I've requested a key again. Amazing software and very very simple to use

    I got it thank you
    Did you use an email other than Gmail? Did you opt in (tick box) for their promos on the sign up page?
    I've tried Gmail / Hotmail, opt in / out, but nada

    Thank you.
    I have just recieved my code. Does it have any expiry date? I will need to buy a new laptop with minimum 8GB Ram so that I can download this on it. OR will it allow me to download it again later on my new laptop?
    No, the code doesn't expire, but carefully note it down for the future or save it in your email client or online emails for future retrieval. You can also take a screenshot of the code in the email & save it that way
    Download the file & transfer it to your new laptop if you buy one - use a USB flashdrive / external hard drive if you have one. (edited)

    Got the email and code within minutes thanks! am I being really thick and can't figure out how to activate it?!

    Not sure, please use the download link in the email & it should be fine.
    For activation instructions please see hotukdeals.com/com…835

    Great software. Especially for low light pictures. Easy to use and brighten them up without making them look unnatural

    Worked, thanks!
    I got Luminar 4 last year and now AI, very nice!

    Bought this last year when it was on offer, for something like £18. Had the intention of buying a proper camera again or editing my old photos.

    I have done none of those things and now it's free.
