Luminar Neo’s GenExpand lets AI expand your image beyond its borders
Skylum has added the third and final member of it trio of new AI-powered editing tools. After releasing GenErase in October and GenSwap in November, now’s the time for GenExpand. As the name suggests, this tool lets you expand your shots using generative technology.
GenExpand is a tool that helps you expand the boundaries of your photos. Whether you want to create panoramic landscapes out of square shots, or just give your images a bit more breathing room, this tool was made to enable it. Basically, it lets you paint the area outside the borders of your image, something like DALL-E’s Outpainting feature. It exists in photoshop, too, but it sometimes messes up even the simplest photos with clean backgrounds. I have yet to play with Skylum’s GenExpand, but I hope it will do an equally good job as it does in presentation and sample images.
