Earlier this fall, Skylum introduced the new AI-powered tools within Luminar Neo. After GenErase, now’s the time to welcome GenSwap to its family of tools. As the name suggests, it lets you swap objects in your shot for something prettier or more enjoyable, blurring the line between AI and photography further.
As it was probably expected, Skylum has jumped on the generative AI bandwagon. Its first-ever generative AI tools for Luminar Neo are coming, and they will let you erase objects, expand images and replace elements in three clicks. The tools are called GenErase, GenExpand, and GenSwap, and let’s see what they have to offer.
Skylum is launching a major update to its signature editing software, Luminar Neo. As we’re already used to, it packs a bunch of generative AI technologies, and this time we’re seeing quite a lot of new features. So, let’s jump right in and see what’s new!
Skylum has just released its newest extension for Luminar NEO: Panorama Stitching. The company promises it will make your panoramic photo editing a breeze, so let’s see what’s in it for you.
In the second update this month, Luminar Neo got an important functionality: Undo/Redo. It’s hard to believe that it hasn’t been there so far, but it’s there now to make your editing process so much more convenient.
The 1.9.0 update also brings a few more improvements and bug fixes, so let’s see what the latest additions to Luminar Neo are.
Skylum has launched a new update for its photo editing app Luminar Neo. Although Neo brags about its AI capabilities, photographers still find it important to have control over the final editing results. This is why the 1.8.0 update lets you fine-tune the presets and other edits you make. It also packs some other improvements to the program, so let’s see what’s new.
AI is here to make our lives easier while getting stronger editing. And it’s improving on a day-to-day basis. So far, we’ve compared AI Upscaling, AI Sharpening, and AI Noise Removal. The results have been quite interesting. AI is driven by Machine Learning (ML), which is in a constant state of flux. The algorithm is constantly evolving as more training data flows in. Usually, it changes for the better, but as with any development, they sometimes just break and have to start all over again. This means that our results vary across tests and types of “retouching”. And today is no different.
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.
It’s time for another software battle! So far, we’ve compared AI photo sharpening and AI photo noise reduction. Next up, is AI photo upscaling, and we’re putting Adobe Photoshop, Topaz Gigapixel AI, Skylum Luminar Neo Upscale AI, and ON1 Resize AI 2023 up against each other. Upscaling images is important for print purposes, and it even slips in with pro-stock shooters who need to create images at specific resolutions. Having AI helps us by upscaling whilst preserving details and filling in the blanks sounds great, but which software does it best?
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are all around us. I firmly believe the future of photography is computational, and we currently have a whole range of companies fighting to make the best progress in AI. Here at DIYPhotography, we’re putting various elements of AI head-to-head to determine the best software on the market. We recently covered AI Noise Reduction, and today we move on to Sharpening.
