    Hi Timothy!

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Stay tuned!

    In my case the whole program crashes!

    In which version is this problem handled?

    Has this problem been assigned increased priority?

    friendly greetings and a nice start to the week :-)

    Hi Val, hi Michael!


    Michael the bug isn't fixed as such in the new version. It's just been moved deeper into the program. The code logic under the hood is still not great.

    From my experience PL is unstable when batching say 100s of images (I am using it on Tiffs).

    I find the best workaround is to: 

    - use a piece of software called FolderAxe (or similar) to divide up large #s of images into smaller segments. I usually make it 200 images / batch.

    - after hitting Apply To Apply images in PL, I use TaskManager in Windows to wait until PL has gone back to 0% CPU, before hitting Export (usually 10 minutes of so).

    It then works.

    There is some unwieldy coding going on under the bonet of PL but the above workarounds allow you to use the software, albeit in a frustrating manner.



    Hope it helps & I hope Skylum gets there act together. I won't be buying the new Luminar until I have tested it. If they can't get the very simple PL gui working, I have little hope for Luminar 2019 being any good.

    But here's hoping...

    Cheers, Timothy
