MacOS pkg files from Luminar by Skylum
« on: April 07, 2018, 10:23:47 pm »
Hello,

I just recently began using Luminar 2018 for most of my image editing and would like to open their native files (*.lmnr) right from Photo Mechanic. Unfortunately, those are MacOS pkg files which are really directory structures.

Photo Mechanic treats them as a directory and does not give me an option of opening the 'file' in Luminar. I tried changing it to .pkg (the Apple extension for package files) and PM still doesn't treat it as a file.

I can use Luminar to open files such as jpg and png with no problem because they are treated as normal files.

I would like to request a feature in PM to treat any *.lmnr directory as a filename and passed to Luminar for direct access from PM to Luminar.

Thanks!

Could you zip up one of these packages and post it here?  I'd like to take a look at it.

Thanks,

I didn't get an email notification of your reply (I didn't check the box) and failed to check back until now...

Thanks for the reply! I have attached a zip file of a Luminar 'file' as seen on MacOS.

Hi, just wanted to follow up and ask if there is anything else I can provide.

It has been a long time since I developed on a Mac (System 7 days) but I'm hoping that you could just pass the entire pkg filename to Luminar (or Aurora) when "Open With..." is used and they do everything else...

Thanks,
Lee
