AI Powered Image Masking
Just as the enthusiasm and popularity of NFT Photography started to grow, we are pleasantly distracted yet again, as Skylum software releases what can be considered the second most significant update since the launch of Luminar Neo back in February 2022.
Impressed with the recent re-introduction of Layers, Luminar Neo is most certainly cut out for becoming the definitive image editor for creative photo artists.
Luminar Neo’s AI masking feature uses advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to automatically detect and mask different elements in an image.
It allows you to easily separate the foreground subject from the background or make precise selections for specific areas of the image.
Here’s how the AI masking works in Luminar Neo:
The AI was clever enough to tell the difference between the sky and sign post and by just clicking the “Sky” suggestion highlights the masked area of your image.
After first analyzing your image, you are presented with a selection of masking options. In this case; Water, Mountains and Natural Ground.
Yes, the AI will actually attempt at suggesting which type of masking is appropriate for your image.
For example, in another image we played with, of a sky and sign post.
