This 7-day photo editing challenge is all about playing around and experimenting with photo editing, even if you've never tried it before!
Each day will have a different theme such as landscape, flowers, people, street photography, b/w, etc., the kind of things you might be shooting. You will get an email with a RAW file to work with, and a short video with some tips to help you get started.
Update January 2021: When this challenge was first released, a trial version of Luminar 4 was available for download for challenge participants to use while they follow along.
Recently however, Skylum released a new version of their software and called it Luminar AI. Due to this change, and without the trial version being available, this challenge will only be possible if you already own the Luminar 4 photo editing software.
If you already own Luminar 4 and want to follow along with our 3.5 hours of video tutorials to practice the techniques, then put in your name and email address and we can get you started immediately.
You'll be able to download the new file to work with each day, edit it to your taste and share it if you like in the comment section of the daily challenge pages.
For photographers who would like to participate using the new Luminar AI, we've got a brand new challenge available here, where you CAN download a trial and follow along.
The idea is for this to be inspirational and fun!
85% of participants rated their editing skills at a 3 or lower out of 5 and 80% reported back that their photo editing skills improved after the challenge was over.
