You can backup your photos by exporting them. Saving them as JPEG files creates smaller easier to manage files, however, there will be a quality loss due to compression. Saving them as TIFF images create archival-quality files. These files will be much larger than if they had been saved as JPEGs.As you work in Luminar, your edits are stored in a catalog file. This catalog tracks your image library and the edits made to those images. Luminar lets you create multiple catalogs to better manage your photos. You could have catalogs for different clients and events, a catalog just for family photos, the sky’s the limit. Using smaller catalogs can also speed up your work significantly.
