Luminar Neo Line Removal

Oh I bet you know the pain of having to remove items such as power lines from what would otherwise be the perfect photo.

Like magic, save time removing power cables from your landscape photo skylines. No more messing with clone tools and layers. This new tool can be used with SkyAI or separately.

The Luminar line removal tool is perfect for editing  wedding, landscape, or other popular sightseeing photos, where there is little choice for capturing your intended composition.

 

Overlays (layers)

At this point of its developement, Skylum has already revealed RelightAI and Portrait Background RemovalAI, two tools that use Layers and the new MaskAI feature to help artists move beyond photo editing and explore compositing as a tool for creative expression. 

Now, Overlaying, graphic and photographic elements with a transparency channel, are yet another way for artists to break out of the photographic box.

To light the creative fire, Luminar Neo includes a rich library of free overlay content. 

Their community of artists and ambassadors regularly add new overlay content to the Luminar Marketplace, which is directly accessible from within Luminar Neo. 

Finally, using MaskAI, creators can create and save custom overlays to be used across their body of work.

Luminar Share

 

The fun doesn’t stop when all your editing is done. The next step in your image editing workflow is exporting your beautiful  images. Which may require transferring from desktop to mobile in order to share them more efficiently or whilst on the move.

Luminar Share Desktop Editing to Mobile Device Integration....

Whilst sharing small regular files and images, where quality is not a concern, may be fairly simple and straight forward. Sharing quality images on the other hand may require a more complicated process and the use of third-party services.

For example, Syncing to cloud drives can be a really  useful feature for both storing and providing sharing access to images.

However, what creators really need is an all-round experience that fully integrates mobile devices with desktop editing.

Allowing artists the possibility to share their work in one click directly from the desktop. Luminar Share aims at completely removing the complications often associated with exporting  images 

Similar to using WhatsApp, as a native mobile app, Luminar Share connects your photo library on Android and iOS mobile devices directly to Luminar Neo using a QR code pairing tool.

Luminar Share creates a secure link between a mobile photo library and Luminar Neo. Advantages include:

●  A completely secure and private connection

●  Automatic, round-trip synchronization of photos and edits

●  Direct sharing from Luminar Neo to social networks (e.g. Instagram)

●  No additional cost for cloud storage

 

Skylum is looking forward to growing and developing in the mobile field, and Luminar Share is the first big step towards that goal. 

From photographers sharing their work to influencers sharing a new look or a new adventure, visual storytellers of every stripe will find Luminar Share to be a great resource. 

At launch, it will be available for Android and iOS mobile devices.

Questions about Luminar Neo?

Can I use both Luminar AI and Luminar Neo?

Currently, whilst both applications can be installed on the same computer. However, both applications cannot exchange editing data and convert libraries, due to the different engine build for Luminar Neo.

Typically, there will be a utility for converting Luminar AI Templates for use with Luminar Neo…

Yes, you can use both Luminar Neo and Luminar AI with the following:

1. Lightroom Classic (starting from version 6)

2. Photoshop (from version CS5)

3. Photos for macOS

4. Microsoft Photos (coming soon in an update relates to Windows 11)

 

Based on a new AI technology engine and designed for creative tasks with maximum performance and flexibility. Luminar Neo is the creative image editor for creators seeking high-quality editing results with the same level of satisfaction you get with Luminar AI.

Luminar AI is for your typical professional photographer, who is not necessarily skilled with photo editing, at least not the practice of creating masks, layers and all the other technical preparatory actions that need to be in place before even committing the actual desired editing…

Meanwhile, Luminar Neo is the extended sibling  to Luminar AI, and includes tools for more intricate image editing … 

For example, Syncing to cloud drives can be a really  useful feature for both storing and providing sharing access to images.
