Luminar is a photo editor developed by Skylum. It can run as a standalone application as well as a plug-in for Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.

We have previously seen Luminar4, which has some incredible AI features but now Skylum has released Luminar AIwhich is powered 100% by artificial intelligence.

LUMINAR-AI  is Skylum latest and most powerful photo editing software yet!


Are You a Fine Art Photographer?

Luminar will take your photo editing to the next level making complex edits a breeze!

Usually, when you are editing images some of the adjustments are global, meaning that they affect the whole image. If you want to make local adjustments it can often take a lot of work such as masking. What is different about Luminar is that it allows you to skip a lot of those steps making it possible to do a job that might take a couple of hours in just a few minutes.

Luminar uses AI (Artificial Intelligence), which is a way for the software to analyze the image. It can tell the difference between the ground, the sky, water, or a human being and is able to identify features in the face.

On the right hand of the screen, you will find the tools to make all the adjustments.

Luminar offers “Looks” at the bottom of the screen which is the equivalent of presets on other photo editors, and can be a starting point when editing.

The true power of Luminar is in the panels on the right-hand side, which contain submenus with amazing options. Here is the breakdown:
