From the press text :
Skylum continues to lead the market with innovative approaches and advanced technologies designed to improve the image editing process. Luminar Neo continues Skylum’s commitment to eliminate boring and repetitive tasks and help artists achieve results often seen as difficult.
- Transform photos with new relighting options. Luminar Neo analyzes each image to recognize the depth of a scene and its subject which allows precise control over exposure and tone.
- Remove blemishes and distracting elements. Luminar Neo automatically recognizes and removes artifacts caused by a dirty camera sensor or lens. New tools make removing unwanted background elements easier than ever before.
- Powerful background replacement. Take full control of the background for portrait photos by quickly replacing it with an all-new image or background.
- Round-trip mobile image management. Our new companion mobile app makes it simple to add pictures captured on a mobile device to your Luminar Catalog. Once edited in Luminar Neo, results can be sent back to the mobile device for easy social sharing or viewing on the go.
Precise control with flexible editing
We designed Luminar Neo with input from working photographers, artists, and colorists. With this guidance, we built Luminar Neo to help artists break new creative ground with an image editor that allows precise control over every aspect of the final image while providing artists a flexible toolset that can be tailored to their unique creative workflow. These capabilities include:
- Smart, AI-based masking easily isolates elements in individual images.
- Add numerous images as layers to create entirely new art.
- Apply any tool and any mask … to any layer, in any order, multiple times.
- Use creative blending modes, guided by AI, to achieve clean, precise, composite images.
Improved Ease of Use
- Users can save their photos as well as presets for easy reuse.
- All editing steps remain editable for complete control over the final image.
- With a minimalist user interface, the whole process is enjoyable and easy.
An all-new editing engine drives Luminar Neo, making it possible to apply multiple tools to an image without significant performance loss. Luminar Neo allows for complex layering of several raw images. Our new Luminar engine enables Skylum to further optimize and refine the entire image-processing pipeline.
While built atop an efficient new engine, Luminar Neo inherits the proven, AI-driven technologies which made LuminarAI a ground-breaking image editor.
“The goal of Luminar has always been to help everyone create images they truly love. With Luminar Neo, we empower even more artists and photographers to achieve their full creative vision,” said Ivan Kutanin, CEO of Skylum. “With new tools and a flexible editing workflow, they’ll find powerful new ways to create while being inspired to explore new ways to do so. We can’t wait to see what our creative community comes up with.”
