Skylum Software Releases Luminar AI

Skylum Luminar AI

This week, Skylum Software released their newest version of the Luminar image editing application, Luminar AI. Available as a standalone product for Mac and Windows and as a plug-in for Lightroom, Photoshop, and Photos for MacOS, Luminar AI added 13 AI features to the previous version. Luminar AI includes all the most powerful tools for professionals but also makes image editing easy for beginners. It makes editing so easy, in fact, that advanced photographers might think it’s more of the toy than a professional image-editing tool. They would be wrong.

Technically, Luminar AI is not an upgrade to Luminar 4. It’s a completely new product although there is enough familiarity with the layout and tools that it might feel like “Luminar 5.”

Luminar AI

Luminar AI is intended to help photographers reduce editing time behind the computer and allow them to focus solely on the results and not necessarily the process. A big addition is the Templates module for one-click processing based on a series of editing recipes for various types of photographs. The Edit Module is similar to Luminar 4 but with quite a few additions including Composition AI which gives recommendations on cropping and the amount of negative space. I’m proud to say I contributed with this particular feature as a Global Ambassador for Skylum Software.

Other AI features – in addition to Composition AI – include Body AI, Atmosphere AI, Augmented Sky AI, Accent AI, Sky AI, Bokeh AI (coming very soon), and Iris AI. The intelligent features are meant to help you make your images look their very best while spending the least amount of time behind the computer.

Luminar AI is now available as either a one-time purchase that you own forever or as a Luminar X Membership which comes with photography courses, new and fresh templates and skies, and more.

Richard Named Global Ambassador for Skylum Software

Skylum Global Ambassador

Skylum Software

Richard Bernabe was recently named one of Skylum Software’s Global Ambassadors. Skylum, a software company based in Bellevue, Washington, is best known for the photo editing software programs Aurora HDR and Luminar.

Luminar in particular has become one of Richard’s favorite image editing tools. Available as a stand-alone product or a Photoshop or Lightroom plug-in, it’s a powerful, feature-rich, one-time purchase (no subscriptions) for professional raw and jpeg image editing and asset management solution.

Richard’s Thoughts

Luminar is a great stand-alone raw converter and image editing tool that requires no monthly subscription. You buy it, you own it. It also couples seamlessly as a plug-in for both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop so you use these powerful tools to augment what editing tools you’re already accustomed to using and your existing libraries and organization.

My favorite feature in Luminar 4 is the AI Accent slider, a tool not found in Lightroom or Photoshop. AI Accent uses artificial intelligence to evaluate the image then “fix” any possible editing problems I might have missed. Too much contrast? Shadows too dark? Colors oversaturated? AI Accent makes changes based on its inelligent evaluation with a slider you control. You apply as little or as much as you like or you can ignore its recommendations altogether. I’ve found that if an image isn’t quite right and I can’t put my finger on why, AI Accent will find the fix for me.
