Sky Replacement

One of the first most notable and popular innovations I can recall in Luminar Neo in the previous years, has been the introduction of the AI-powered SkyAI 2.0. ( the Sky Replacement tool).

This feature allows photographers to easily replace or enhance skies in their photos with just a few clicks. With an extensive library of sky presets and the ability to fine-tune the results, photographers can now achieve stunning sky replacements in a matter of seconds.

Portrait Tools

Another groundbreaking feature is the AI Portrait Enhancer. This tool leverages the power of artificial intelligence to automatically detect and enhance facial features, resulting in professional-looking portraits with minimal effort. 

From skin smoothing and blemish removal to eye and teeth enhancements, the AI Portrait Enhancer takes portrait editing to a whole new level. I love the way it’s able to detect lips, eyes and brows without affecting other areas in a negative way.

AI Structure tool for detail enhancement

Luminar Neo also introduces the AI Structure tool, which intelligently enhances details and textures in images while preserving a natural look. Whether it’s bringing out intricate patterns in landscapes or adding depth to architectural shots, the AI Structure tool allows photographers to achieve stunning results with ease.


The GenTech Era

Now this is something else, almost like magic retouch images with text prompts; remove or ad objects and even change the aspect ratio of your photo without abrupt cropping.

This is where Luminar Neo really pushes the boundaries of image editing providing the tools for creative photographers and “story tellers” to visually bring their ideas to life.
