In this article and video, I’m excited to show you around inside the new Luminar AI! I have a beta copy and have been playing with it for a few days and I’m pretty impressed so far.
So if you’re still undecided about whether to upgrade from Luminar 4 (or another previous version) or to buy it for the first time – hopefully, this will answer some of your questions and concerns.
If you aren’t up on the announcement, watch this first: The New Luminar AI – the good, the bad, and is it for you?
UPDATE: Since publishing this post about Luminar AI, Skylum is now preparing to release Luminar Neo in early 2022. You can get up to speed on this new piece of image editing software by reading my review and follow along with updates. As well, I have a Luminar Neo Course available, as soon as the software is released to the public.
What’s new in Luminar AI
I can’t cover everything in one video, so in this one I’ll show you the following:
- Speed improvement importing and loading images
- Templates (which replace Looks)
- Some of the new Portrait AI tools (Body AI and Iris AI)
- Atmosphere AI
- Composition AI
Here’s a before and after that took me about a minute to do using a Template and a few quick tweaks.
Now watch the video below.
Sneak peek inside Luminar AI
Make sure to stick around until the end of the video to see all the above items demonstrated.
You will also see me import over 2700 raw Fuji images LIVE into Luminar AI in under 13 seconds (for real, you can hear me counting)!
Please keep a couple things in mind here.
First, this is a beta copy and as such it’s not yet 100% finished. So there will be things added or changed before the final release in December (I do not have an exact date on it yet).
Second, I am just showing you a few of the new things in Luminar AI that we’ve never seen before in past versions. There’s a lot more you can do with it so if you’re new to Luminar check out some of my previous tutorials on it.
More before and after images
Here are more of the before and after edited images from the video.
Note: Skylum is about to release their newest image editing software Luminar Neo, with a release date of early 2022, possibly even March. Read my review of Luminar Neo here, and keep up to date with all the details. I’m also developing a Luminar Neo course to get new users up to speed as soon as possible. Is Luminar AI dead? Do you need both Luminar AI and the new Luminar Neo? Is it a replacement for Photoshop? Watch my initial run-through of the latest “technical build” and my thoughts on who Luminar Neo is FOR and who it’s NOT for.
