I’ve just finished Darlene’s Luminar Neo Class. I consider myself a beginner/Intermediate photographer. I have some experience with using Lightroom and Photoshop. The reality is both those softwares are amazing, but much too deep for my needs. In essence I only use a fraction of their capabilities. In a very short time Darlene’s class got me from a person that has never used any Skylum product… into a person that believes that Luminar Neo was meant for me. The classes were concise, not about how great her photography was, and packed with useable information to you up and running in no time. The tools within the software were very intuitive to use. Darlene’s Zoom presentations dissected each lesson into easy to understand language, complete with collaboration with with peers to gain a better understanding the Luminar Neo software. Darlene’s FaceBook site, is another invaluable tool… a place to upload you work, and receive valuable, one-on-one input from Darlene and also your peers! On a scale of 1 to 10… this class far exceeded expectations, and yes, it was way off the charts, meaning way over a 10!!! Thanks for a most positive learning opportunity.

This has been a great course and I love the teaching style with the videos and the live with questions. The live edits make learning so much easier for me. Thanks Darlene

The Luminar Neo software is an amazing package to enhance your images. Darlene takes you through all of the tools in depth, showing the strength and pitfalls of each tool. After each lesson Darlene immediately answers any and all questions for as long as it takes.
The most useful aspect of the course is where she takes her own and student images live and edits them in real time explaining what she is looking for and what to watch out for while the students interactively ask questions. The recorded lessons and question and answer sessions remain online for you to refer to in the future should you need a refresher.

This course was so helpful to me. I had experience with Luminar 4, Luminar AI, and now Luminar Neo, but I learned something new about Luminar Neo (and photography in general) with every lesson. Even better, I can go back and review any lesson at any time. Darlene and Rob make it clear that they want all of us to improve from wherever we are in our photography journey, and understand that we will do that at our own pace. They have the heart of a teacher. I love the interaction, because (even when I couldn’t participate in a live session) others frequently had the same questions I have. Highly recommend this course!

The Luminar Neo: The Complete Course is the best value photo editing course I invested in. If anyone hesitates to sign up; do it you won’t be disappointed.

Yes, this course gives you insight as to how Luminar Neo tools work in a very clear way and you will get extra information as she interacts with the participants and the problems they bring up. Where this course really stands apart is Darlene’s teaching style. I have taken courses with a lot of good information but I find myself drifting off and then having to rewind as I don’t know what has been said. I found Darlene’s teaching style to be engaging, clear and quite often fun.

Darlene is a skilled photographer and instructor. Learning a new tool such as Luminar NEO AND learning to edit photos at the same time is not brain dead simple. She carefully weaves the editing process in with the use of the tool in a simple, clear method. It is true you could attempt to learn this on your own through various snippets of on-line information but most of this is disorganized without real examples that you can practice on. DPM provides all the materials you need to really learn the subject and of course you will get add-ons as they develop the product. This really is worth the investment. No regrets in buying this course at all.

I’ve really enjoyed this course. Darlene’s insights into both NEO and editing tricks have helped me figure out how to into my workflow. I do start with Lightroom but I now understand how NEO can make many editing chores easier and quicker. Thanks Darlene.

I have been a photographer for several years migrating from negative to digital with enthusiasm. My goal was to take pictures that needed a little if any editing. I worked my way through photo and subsequent Apple products but nothing was giving me the right edge. I followed Darlene and others where I gleaned what I could. I was not at all interested in Photoshop the learning curve is very steep. I thought that light room would fit the bill but didn’t wanna pay a monthly subscription, so I purchased the last version of Lightroom classic. Well I enjoyed using that software I wasn’t completely happy.
And then one day the opportunity came from DPM to have a look at Luminar AI. Wow, that opened my eyes and I could see how I could enhance the context of my photographs from replacing blown out skies to control; over specific items that were not quite right in my minds eye.
But now, NEO came along and double WOW it opens another level of imagination of what your post processing could look like.
But again, I wondered if I could handle the intricacies of learning another software system. Darlene said to the masses “walk with me. I will show you the way” and boy did she ever.
Darlene dealt with all the nuances in such a manner that OLD MINDS could follow and understand. For that I say thank you very much.

This is an excellent course – I would never have used half the tools if they hadn’t been explained to me. Darlene explains everything so well and is open to questions. You get the course to keep forever so you can refer back when needed. Definitely recommend this course.

I hesitated to purchase this course initially because there are so many clips and videos online for Luminar Neo and that this would only be an extension of those. WRONG! The course covered everything from start to finish, in a very precise and understandable way. Darlene also showed us some of her tricks, which were truly incredible. A very in depth course, I would highly recommend it.

Darlene is excellent in what she does. Her course in Luminar Neo is excellent. I’m 71 years old and new to photography and Darlene explains everything so well. Time well spent! I like the fact that I can come back to a particular lesson if I forget what to do. I’ve taken other courses but they don’t take the time that Darlene does. They assume that you know things already. Very happy that I took this course.

This course is a complete and logical step by step process to learn Neo with additional updates as features and tools are added or modified. I looked around for other resources and they were mostly incomplete or scattered lessons rather than building your knowledge in a logical progression. So nicely laid out and simple to return to any lesson for a refresher. Darlene’s teaching style matches they way I learn. She is very prepared and the classes stay on target. In addition, she has many important handouts included throughout the course. I give this course an enthusiastic thumbs up. You won’t be disappointed

I just finished Darlene’s Luminar Neo course tonight. I have been a Lightroom / Photoshop user for many years now and have a collection of over 100,000 photos. I am currently semi-professional shooting tropical islands, like Hawaii, Bahamas and Dominican Republic. I been hearing for a while about the new Luminar Neo product and was looking for a way to learn it quickly, but thoroughly. This class did just that, less than one week and I’m turning out great edits with ease. Darlene’s training methods are straightforward, to the point, and easy to grasp, even for a person that has never used this product before. I was having some difficulty figuring a a workflow to go from Lightroom, through Photoshop, to Luminar Neo and return all the way back to Lightroom totally seem-less. One or two quick question to Darlene on her Facebook site solved the problem for me and she even did a video sample of the workflow for me. This is definitely “going the extra mile”. To anyone thinking of a training class Darlene is the best!

I found this course extremely helpful. Darlene does a great job of both explaining and illustrating all of NEO’S many features. Having completed the course I have successfully integrated NEO into my workflow. I start in Lightroom but often jump to NEO to take advantage of many of its features.

This was a most valuable learning experience, Darlene’s idea of how to teach people of all experience how to learn a new skill is just amazing. No question is rubbish, she has patience & understanding in how she delivers. She is just so anxious that each student understands as much she does. The way the classes are divided into different sections makes it so easy to follow along. I think if I bought Luminar Neo & didn’t do the course I wouldn’t have used half of the utilities that this wonderful program has. I had never used a layer or a texture in my life now I have a layering a lot of my photos. The fact that the program is for life & that one can keep referring to the lessons is game changer.
I am so delighted I did this course, it was an invaluable resource for me.
Thank you Darlene & Rob an inspirational team .

Teaching is a difficult thing to do because not all minds absorb information in the same way. At first I struggled with how this is presented but I know this is me not Darlene. So I thought about her years of experience, and the knowledge this has given her. Then I relaxed and just paid attention. She is the teacher I am the student. At that point this became a very wonderful experience. She thoroughly explains things in a logical manner and never talks as if she is the most knowledgeable person while sharing a wealth of knowledge. We might not know why she does all her moves but her photos are excellent and after 50yr mine have also improved through her teaching. Worth the money and a very good investment in time. I hope to meet you some day soon.
