Fuji X-T2 - Before and After

Macphun Luminar

I keep meaning to write an article on my Post Processing workflow... trouble is that it keeps changing as interesting new software arrives to play with.

I took a RAW photo that I took on a recent trip to Westonbirt Arboretum and have shown the 'Before' un-edited RAW and the 'After' quick process with Luminar

I opened the same Fuji X-T2 RAW file in the stand-alone Luminar Application and made some small tweaks in the 'Landscape' workflow:

  • Warmed Color Temp
  • Added Vignette (-51 strength and -38 Feather)
  • Foliage Enhancement Filter - Set Blend Mode to 'Soft Light'
  • Top/Bottom Filter (burned in the base a little)

All of these tweaks took a about a minute and I adjusted sliders until I had a pleasing image. The UI is really intuitive (I have not looked at any instruction in the software as yet!)

I think the result is quite pleasing and punchy.
