Skylum has come a long way since the Macphun days. Since breaking out of their Mac-only shell and expanding out into Windows, their software has come on leaps and bounds for both platforms in terms of both capabilities as well as performance. We caught up with Skylum CEO, Alex Tsepko, at PhotoPlus 2019 in New York last month to have a chat about the new features coming to Luminar 4.
Skylum Luminar has seen some pretty massive changes over the last couple of years. The latest version, Luminar 4, particularly so. It’s had a lot of cool new AI enhancements, like easy sky replacements, and the Structure tool which identifies the different parts of your image and enhances the most important bits.
More recently, they’ve also been showing off some new tools for portrait shooters, too, like the AI Skin Enhancer. We visited the Skylum stand at PhotoPlus 2019 in New York where Skylum’s Chief Growth Officer and founder of 500px, Evgeny Tchebotarev, gives us a walkthrough of processing a portrait in Luminar 4.
We teamed up with the leading brands in the world to give you a killer sweepstakes. We’ll be giving away over $1,500 of goodies to two lucky photographers.
Over the past few months, Skylum has teased a few key features of the upcoming Luminar 4. It’s all about making photo editing automated, easier and much faster than before. After showing you how its AI-powered features work, Skylum has now officially released Luminar 4 and it’s ready for preorders.
Luminar 4 is only days from being released, and Skylum is gradually revealing the AI-powered features it’s going to offer. After automatic sky replacement and smart background enhancement, Skylum is now showing off the automatic Skin Enhancer & Portrait Enhancer. They’re made to assist your retouching process and make it faster than ever before.
Luminar 4 is set to be released this fall, and Skylum is gradually revealing all the exciting features it’s going to offer. After showing off how its Sky Replacement feature works, Skylum now demonstrates its new AI Structure tool. It’s a smart content-aware tool that automatically adds detail to a photo, but without negatively affecting people or other subjects.
Sky replacements are fairly common in photography these days. Not everybody is shooting a camera with a wide enough dynamic range to always capture a well-exposed subject without a blown out sky. Or, perhaps the sky on the day you were shooting is just a bit boring. Typically, we take to Photoshop to do the sky replacement and blend it in with our foreground scene.
Luminar 4, though, is coming with a new AI Sky Replacement feature, first mentioned last month. Now, Skylum has released a video showing the sky replacement feature in action in the latest beta edition of Luminar 4.
Skylum has just announced the release of Luminar 4, which will feature the first automatic AI Sky Replacement tool. The company is focusing more and more on machine learning solutions, and the upcoming improvements all about making your workflow more automatized and thus faster and more efficient.
Skylum launched Luminar Flex plugin in April current year, and now the first major update is here. The Luminar Flex 1.1 update adds the new Accent AI 2.0 filter, the clever and “human-aware” editing tool that let you improve your images in a single click. Along with the Accent AI 2.0, Luminar Flex 1.1 brings a few more improvements that will speed up your editing process and provide you with new creative options. So let’s see what’s new and how you can update the software.
