BELLEVUE, WA โ€“ September 17, 2019 -- Today, Skylum has announced two major new features coming to Luminar 4, set to be released this fall.

These tools use machine learning to speed up the process, but contain detailed controls for even the most demanding photo editor.

Skylum Luminar AI Launches with AI at the Core of the Experience


Skylum has officially launched Luminar AI which comes packed with multiple AI-Powered editing tools including an enhanced sky replacer and several new ways to reshape and change the human body or face. Skylum has heavily hyped this latest software release with months of teasers and online chatter. The company says that with the launch of Luminar AI, it hopes to offer an alternative to the approach that traditional photo editors present and give creatives a workflow driven by artificial intelligence. Skylum says its goal was to remove tedious tasks and eliminate learning curves. The first step in this goal is realized through the new Templates system that automatically scans each photo for subject and problem areas and then recommends a Template that Skyulum says "challenges an artist's creativity while also helping them achieve common tasks."

Over the course of the last few years, Skylum made a name for itself with a set of photo-editing apps like Aurora HDR and Luminar. With Luminar AI, it is now launching a brand-new photo editor, starting at $79. The new application, available as a standalone product for Mac and Windows and as a plug-in for Lightroom and Photos for MacOS, was built from the ground up and offers many of the traditional photo-editing features you're probably familiar with from the likes of Lightroom. The focus, though, is on its new AI-based tools, with a special focus on editing landscapes (and skies in general) and portrait shoots. In total, Skylum added 13 AI features to the application.
