Skylum Software present: 100+ plugins for Photoshop

A guest posting by Skylum Software

Before launching Luminar Flex a few weeks ago, Skylum did a little research to see what plug-ins for Photoshop are currently available on the market. They’ve collected over 100 different plugins that might be useful for photographers, designers and anyone who works with Photoshop.
Based on it they’ve prepared an organised and numbered list of plug-ins from photo editing and noise reduction helpers, to those that work with icons, fonts or mockups. Please, feel free to share this list or give them a hint if they’ve forgotten to add any plug-in worthy of being on the list.

A review by Donny Yankellow (@rtteachr)

If you enjoy editing photos on your Mac, but Photos is not enough power for you, and you don’t like having to use an external editor to edit photos in, Luminar Flex might be what you are looking for. It has the power of Skylum’s Luminar in an extension that can be used in Photos. If you prefer Photoshop, Lightroom, or still use Aperture Luminar Flex installs a plugin for those apps too (yes, it even supports Aperture!).

Flex is very easy to set up and use for the most part. I would be remiss not to talk about an installation issue I had. The installer could not connect to the Skylum server (something with my router blocking it) and I ended up hotspotting to my phone to get the installation to work. Your mileage may vary, but I think this is worth bringing up. Through the installation plugins and extensions are installed for the apps you have installed on your computer in addition to the standalone app in your applications folder. For me, I only use Photos so I had to go into system preferences and enable the extension through the Extensions preference. After that I could easily use the software like any other extension in Photos.
