Artificial intelligence is quickly becoming an integral part of photo editing software, and Adobe seems to be following the trends. The latest version of Photoshop has been released for desktop and iPad, and it contains an AI-powered feature that lets you tweak your subject’s age, gaze, and facial expression in just a few clicks. But there are a few more new AI-based improvements, so let’s jump in and see what’s new in Photoshop.
Skylum keeps teasing the new features that are coming to Luminar AI. The latest novelty is a new and improved Sky Replacement that is now more accurate than before. Sky Replacement 2.0 now automatically adds water reflections to your landscape photos. Along with some other enhanced details, Luminar AI will now make your composite images more realistic and believable.
Adobe seems to rely on AI more and more, and it’s constantly adding helpful new features to its software. Photoshop Elements 2021 and Premiere Elements 2021 have just been announced, and they’re full of AI-powered features that are both useful and fun.
Recently, we’ve seen a bunch of upscaled and colorized historic footage: from 1911 New York to 1972 Apollo 16 Lunar Rover ride. Even videos as old as the iconic 1896 The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station are possible to upscale to 4K and get a splash of color. While many of us find them inspiring and exciting, historians don’t seem to share the opinion. In fact, they argue that the whole process is “nonsense” and they’d like YouTubers to stop doing it.
When announcing Luminar AI, Skylum revealed that Templates would be the core of the new AI-based editing software. Today, the company has revealed more details about Templates, announcing that it relies both on artificial and human intelligence. It’s kinda like presets on steroids, so let’s dive in and see how the new feature works and what it brings to the table.
Google Photos is getting powerful new updates to its auto-enhance editor. The tool will soon rely on artificial intelligence, making every edit suitable for the particular photo that you work on.

After Skylum, Adobe has decided to join the party and give us an AI-powered sky replacement feature. Soon, you’ll be able to automatically replace the sky in Photoshop in only a couple of clicks. Adobe has shared a sneak peek at a new feature, and I have to admit that it looks quite impressive!
After Adobe and Jigsaw, Microsoft is also joining the game of detecting and labeling fake photos and videos with the help of AI. The company has introduced Microsoft Video Authenticator which analyzes videos in real-time and lets you know if they have been manipulated. According to Microsoft, the main goal of the new tech is to combat misinformation
Skylum has introduced Luminar AI, a new tool that aims to make professional photo editing much faster and available to more than photographers and retouchers. It’s designed for anyone who relies on photos to tell their story. It can be photographers, of course, but also bloggers, entrepreneurs, educators, business owners… you name it. As the name suggests, it relies heavily on artificial intelligence, and Skylum says that it’s focused on the result rather than the process of editing. So, let’s dive in and see what Luminar AI has to offer.
