It doesn’t take too much of an effort to predict that software trends for the future will include those that employ artificial intelligence technology and machine learning.

Here’s why creative photographers and digital artist can benefit from the use of Artificial Intelligence in creativity…



What is AI Technology in Photography?

Let’s start from the beginning and briefly explain what, Artificial Intelligence is and why it is a useful innovation for creative photographers and photo artists.

In a nutshell, Artificial Intelligence comprises of a numbers of ‘branches’ or areas of study within computer science and machine learning. 

This includes fields such as:

• pattern recognition
• image processing
• symbolic learning
• statistical learning, etc

Now, through machine learning and combining different layers of data, patterns can be observed and measured in order to predict the results of specific outcomes.

Which is why artificial intelligence has also become a useful technology within the general content and marketing arena in some way or another.

And it’s not just software that uses AI technology. There are cameras that also use AI for simplifying complex tasks.

Take the Alice Camera for creators, for example. The Alice Camera is a good example of also making artificial intelligence available to camera phone users.

Whilst it works as a standalone camera, the Alice Camera can also be attached to a smartphone.

Or, there is the Olympus OM-D, where deep learning technology, allows the camera to record what makes satisfactory photos under certain conditions, based on the data it has already learned from.

Of course there’ll always be the odd photo, for which Luminar doesn’t quite get things right, without a little extra encouragement. However, in general, you can always be sure that you’ll have a way of achieving your editing intentions faster than before.

Luminar Neo Demo

After launching Luminar Neo for the very first time, well at least this technical ‘demo’ version. So let’s see what’s so cool about the new tools you get with Luminar Neo.

Dust Removal AI

Save memories and salvage ruined photos of distracting dust and spots easily.
Unsightly artifacts due to dust on your camera lens or sensors can easily ruin a photo. Fortunately most photo editors, with a few tweaks and tinkering will help clean up your images. But why mess around with blurs tools, clone tools, layers and whatever other tools it might take, when AI will automatically detect these artifacts and with the Dust Removal AI tools instantly remove them to provide a spotless result.

Line Removal AI

Now, whilst you might agree with the usefulness of an easy way of removing dust from your photos. Well how about a tool that automatically removes unwanted power lines and phone lines from those, what would otherwise be stunning landscape photos.

This tool can be particularly handy for editing photos of auspicious occasions such as weddings, or even dramatic landscapes and popular sightseeing landmarks.


AI-enabled compositing

Sharing your photos between devices and social media...

After editing comes another important yet sometimes tedious step in the artist’s workflow, sharing:

Okay, so the process of sharing process can be complicated and often requires third-party services, you know how it is.

Anyway, whilst having the ability to sync to cloud drives is helpful for storing and maybe sharing photos, but what if you had a software that fully integrates mobile devices with your desktop editing? How cool is that?

Well, Luminar Share does exactly that.

With Luminar Share, bypass the complications with exporting and share your work from your desktop, in a single click.

Using a QR code pairing tool Luminar Share creates a secure link between your mobile photo library and Luminar Neo.

Advantages include:

● A completely secure and private connection
● Automatic, round-trip synchronisation of photos and edits
● Direct sharing from Luminar Neo to social networks (e.g. Instagram)
● No additional cost for cloud storage
