It’s Black Friday at Skylum: Luminar Neo is available at huge discounts of up to 70% and more. Discount applies to all subscriptions and new extensions. until November 29, 2022. Luminar Neo is the latest version of a photo editing program based largely on artificial intelligence. The alternative to Lightroom and Photoshop is offered at a very low price until tomorrow so enjoy it.

A software for all photo enthusiasts

At the time, one of the biggest distinguishing features of the Luminar was the ability to replace the sky in photos with just a few clicks. This feature appeared in Luminar 4 in 2016 and already worked like magic back then.

This mechanism has gained so much popularity that Adobe has added it to Photoshop as well. Skylum, the developer of Luminar, didn’t rest on their laurels, however, as they constantly developed their own mechanism: Luminar Neo, which uses artificial intelligence to analyze and improve your photos.

Luminar Neo is a comprehensive photo editing tool with a focus on smart filters. Here we have a set of really unusual solutions based on artificial intelligence: many tools work with a single click, although the effects can be adjusted manually using various sliders.

This way you can for example remove the background behind a subject, automatically retouch the skin tone of portrait photos, hide selected photo fragments, or intelligently improve the contrast. Thought Adobe excels at AI filters? With Luminar Neo, you will understand that Photoshop does not set trends, but rather simply follows what the competition is doing.

The latest version of Luminar Neo may not be revolutionary, but it does introduce some new tools. Among the novelties, we will note the change of exposure on the individual plans of a photo. You can darken the background, lighten the foreground model, and increase the contrast of the midplane. All this without any masking or manual clipping. Other filters to try:

  • HDR Fusion: lets you easily create HDR images using up to 10 photos
  • AI Noise Free: Reduces noise in grainy photos
  • AI interpolation: increases the scale of a photo up to 6 times without altering its quality
  • AI Cutout: Allows you to remove the background behind the main subject of your photo with just one click, etc.

Luminar Neo works as a separate program, as well as a full plug-in for Lightroom, Photoshop, and the macOS Photos system app.
