The editing capabilities are quite good. It has some filters and effects that would require significant work in other applications.

But they over-marketed and over-sold their digital asset mgmt (think catalog) in 2017. They failed to deliver it until a year later and even then it is not a true DAM. Users are very angry with Skylum, and many including me have gone to another product for DAM. I still use it as a plug in.

It is nice as you can use AI and get quite good result.
However the app is using too much marketing. For instance they promote a new revolution software called Luminar AI which in reality is a couple of new models added. So it s rather an update of luminar 4 than a big improvement. Same story is true from luinar3 to luminar4.
Another big issue is speed. Even with a recent machine it takes ages to save a picture and they do not use the gpu at all unless lightroom...

Fantastic alternative to PS and LR. For amateurs and professionals alike. Seriously, give it a try
