Luminar 4.2 Adds 'AI Augmented Sky' for Seamless Photo Manipulation


Skylum has released the latest version of the Luminar photo editor, and in addition to the expected performance enhancements and minor updates, Luminar 4.2 boasts a new feature called "AI Augmented Sky" that makes creating surreal photo composites the work of a few seconds. As the name suggests, AI Augmented Sky takes advantage of computer vision and machine learning technology to help you composite elements into the sky in your photos. Skylum claims that the feature will work seamlessly, even if your photo has "complex backgrounds" like trees or buildings, and there's "no need to involve masking or layers" to get the job done. Finally, the feature doesn't HAVE to be used to create surreal composites. More subtle edits are also possible, like moving the moon to a more "pleasing" position in the sky, or adding in some clouds without fully replacing the sky.
