What is Bokeh AI?

If you are reading this early, the Luminar AI update 4 is due for release on the 27th of July, which will include the dedicated Bokeh AI Tool for the first time.

Bokeh AI provides a simple way to create that hazy background effect you can achieve from taking photos with a shallow depth of field

For example, where the subject matter may be in sharp focus, whilst the background is blurred or has out-of-focus spots of light. 

Bokeh AI will give your photos that authentic “high-quality lens at maximum aperture” effect.

Luminar AI Update 4 - FAQ

The term bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke (暈け or ボケ), meaning haze (halo) or blurred.

Communicators and visual story tellers use Luminar to create great looking, professional content in less time. Luminar AI is ideal, for anyone looking to produce aesthetic imagery for any form of content faster.

Bokeh is often described as the aesthetically pleasing way in which a camera lens produces out-of-focus points of light. Affected by aperture shape and lens aberrations, different bokeh effects are formed.

There are a number of things that Luminar AI can do, that both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom cannot. However, to mention every aspect concerning what Luminar AI can do, that Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom can’t, may not be a worthwhile exercise. Especially as there are always new developments from both Skylum software and Adobe.

However, there are perhaps 2 things worth knowing; 

Firstly, Luminar AI is non-destructive, meaning; it will always retain your original image, whereas to date, this is not the case with Adobe’s offerings.. 

Secondly, Luminar AI is built on the premise of making complexity simple. Unlike most tools and methods of editing using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Luminar AI allows you to achieve edits by simply selecting a tool and adjusting its intensity with the use a simple slider. 

This makes editing  much faster than with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. But here’s, the great news; Luminar AI works as both a standalone or plugin / extension app with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
