Skylum has released its seventh and final Luminar Neo Extension for 2022. It’s called Magic Light AI and it’s here just in time for the holidays! The tool lets you adjust light sources in your photos and give them shiny, glowing light beams. You know, to get that little extra sparkle in your Christmas trees and fairy lights.
Skylum has revealed a new Extension coming to Luminar Neo for Pro Plan subscribers and owners of the 2022 Extensions Pack next month. Several Extensions have been released already, including HDR merge, Noiseless AI, Upscale AI, AI Background Removal, and Focus Stacking. Following on with the theme of tackling some of the most common and frustrating problems, the new one takes aim at blur.
The new Supersharp AI Extension challenges both focus blur and motion blur head-on in order to try to create as sharp an image as possible. Judging from the sample images Skylum sent us, it looks like it does a pretty good job, too. Impressively, the neural engine used by Supersharp AI also appears to be able to distinguish between a simple misfocus and intentional depth of field blur.
If you’re a Luminar Neo user, I’m sure you know that Skylum has been launching extensions since July this year. Four out of seven are already out, and now the fifth one in the row is here: Focus Stacking.
As with most of Luminar Neo’s tools, the Focus Stacking extension is also AI-based. It lets you focus-stack up to 100 source images and create super-sharp macro photos, portraits, landscapes… Or anything else you want.
After HDR Merge and Noiseless AI, Skylum has revealed the next two extensions for Luminar Neo. Upscale AI and AI Background Removal are next to come to the extension package. Skylum refers to Luminar Neo as a “platform,” and these extensions are a step towards its growth. So, let’s dive right in and see what this means for you as a photographer and a Skylum’s customer.
If you’ve used any of Skylum’s products, you know that they also work as extensions for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. But now, for the first time, the Ukrainian company has now released its very own paid extension for Luminar Neo.
It’s designed for anyone who’s into HDR photography… Or those are you who aren’t, but you’d like to give it a shot. HDR Merge compiles multiple exposure-bracketed images into a single HDR photo, merging up to 10 photos.
Two years ago, Apple ditched its photo-editing app iPhoto for the redesigned and newly-named Photos app. As part of that transition, the Cupertino-based company announced its new Photos app would support third-party extensions to help make it more powerful and customizable for users.
Known photo app developer MacPhun recently decided to take advantage of this new functionality with its app Filters for Photos. Now, along with the app, MacPhun has announced that it will include 30 free filters to go along use inside the app.[Read More…]
