Successor to the legendary Luminar 4, Luminar Neo is the little novelty from Skylum, which already publishes Luminar AI. A software that has new technologies based on AI, allowing photographers and creators to edit their photos even faster without doing repetitive tasks.
Skylum has just announced the release of a new tool based on artificial intelligence: Luminar Neo, which notably helps to eliminate the tedious process of masking and removing the background in portraits. So, who is Luminar Neo for? How does Neo compare to Luminar AI? And what are the features of Neo 1.1?
What is Luminar Neo?
Luminar Neo is an AI-powered photo editing software from Skylum. Skylum said Neo is not a replacement for its flagship version, named Luminar AI. On the contrary: Neo sets out to solve some of the problems users have had with Luminar AI.
Skylum uses AI to streamline and simplify the photo editing process. The artificial intelligence tools Power Line and Sky Replacement allow, in particular, to carry out tedious and time-consuming tasks with a single click.
The software offers you dozens of features to improve your portraits, in addition to a dozen presets to make some easy touch-ups.
Luminar Neo’s artificial intelligence tools are particularly powerful: photographers or content creators, whether beginners or professionals, will love the software for sure.
A solid alternative to Adobe Lightroom
Obviously, the new tools offered by Luminar Neo are not lacking to support you in the post-production of your images.
Some examples ? You can automatically remove dust spots from a shot, hide objects, relight a scene, or use blending modes, create collages, add double exposure effects, and manage it all via layers. Plus, with the Luminar Share mobile app for iOS and Android, you can quickly and easily transfer all images from your smartphone to a computer.
In particular, there are several tools powered by a completely rewritten and accelerated RAW development engine, such as:
- Accent AI
- AI structure
- Face AI and Iris AI
- Skin AI
- Body AI
- Portrait Bokeh AI
- Atmosphere AI
Repositioning, depth adjustment, light mixing, lighting management… The software offers many particularly practical tools that Luminar 4 and Luminar AI users are familiar with.
The Mask AI tool, on the other hand, allows you to create masks using AI in the service of scene and subject recognition. It can identify hundreds of objects, portraits, skies, water, mountains, vegetation, etc. The Dust Removal AI tool allows him to remove dust from photos. Line Removal AI allows it to remove electrical wires from an image, useful for “failed” photos of landscapes, for example.
