Professional editing of
newborn photos

Get a deep gaze, smooth skin, and expressive facial features with AI-powered tools in Luminar Neo. Using face recognition technology, the Face AI tool selectively targets the skin, eyes, and mouth in a photo and makes them vivid, bright, and smooth in less than five minutes — instead of 40 minutes with classic retouching textures and brushes.

Skin AI

The Skin AI tool analyzes your image and can automatically enhance and retouch a person’s skin to make it smoother and remove glare, pimples, and pores. You get complete control over how the content-aware adjustments are applied.

Body AI

Body AI shapes a subject’s torso and abdomen. AI contours the human body and its individual proportions, so there’s no need to select the shape manually. This tool easily compensates for lens issues or unflattering angles.

Glow

The Glow tool adds luminescence and focus to your photos, producing a unique look that’s both sharp and blurry at the same time. It’s perfect for objects with smooth surfaces and portraits, and you can even choose the type of Soft Focus.

Photographing children is tricky, but we know the trick

Portrait Background RemovalAI is a powerful feature created on the basis of MaskAI, the smart AI technology that quickly detects and selects the objects in the photo. Forget about time-consuming manual selections.

Highlight the tender moments of a newborn to match any mood you want to create

Mood

The Mood tool uses professional lookup tables (LUTs) to quickly change the tone of your photo. Choose from film stocks and black and white looks — or create color grades to unlock a new style in seconds.

Black & White

The Black & White tool converts a color photo to black and white so you can accentuate highlights and shadows. It also contains a number of controls to manipulate the monochrome look. Select Luminance to control the brightness of the Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, and Magenta channels and adjust their saturation.

Film Grain

Frequently Asked Questions

What is photo masking?

Masking is a convenient way to hide parts of an image that should remain untouched and select objects for enhancement.

Which keyboard shortcut is used with the masking tool?

In Luminar Neo’s intuitive workflow, you don’t have to memorize shortcuts. Click the name of an object from the menu to mask it in your photo.

Select and mask do not work!

It’s common that a traditional photo editing app with a masking tool can only select human figures automatically. Luminar Neo automatically masks nine objects that are recognized by the AI at its core.

Can I copy a mask to another layer?

If you duplicate a layer, the mask is duplicated too.

What is LuminarAI?

LuminarAI is an all-new application and plug-in and the first fully AI-powered image editing software in the world.


While Skylum is well-known for building software that taps into artificial intelligence for great results, LuminarAI is entirely different. 


We built LuminarAI with artificial intelligence at its core. Artificial intelligence saves you time and effort. Before, traditional editing software was outdated. It was time-consuming and hard to learn. It required effort and skills to get satisfying results. With LuminarAI, you can create great-looking photos much faster. It’s perfect for anyone, of any skill level. 


While other companies use artificial intelligence as a catchphrase, LuminarAI is packed full of truly smart technology. LuminarAI features many AI tools that allow you to get more done in less time. Innovations like SkyAI, FaceAI, BodyAI, IrisAI, AtmosphereAI and more give your images a memorable style and a competitive edge. Without sacrificing quality, speed or creative options.

What are the system requirements for LuminarAI?

LuminarAI should work on your computer as long as it meets the following minimum system requirements. 


For Mac:

    • MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro, Mac mini, early 2010 or newer

      • CPU Intel® Core™ i5 or better

        • Memory 8 GB RAM or more (16+ GB RAM is recommended)

          • macOS 10.13.6 or higher. IMPORTANT: macOS 10.12 is not supported.

            • Hard disk 10 GB free space; SSD for best performance

              • Display 1280x768 size or better

              Starting from Update 3, LuminarAI runs natively on the M1 chip.


              For Windows:

                • Windows-based hardware PC with mouse or similar input device

                  • CPU Intel® Core™ i5 or better, AMD Ryzen™ 5 or better

                    • Open GL 3.3 or later compatible Graphics Cards

                      • Memory 8 GB RAM or more (16+ GB RAM is recommended)

                        • Operating System Windows 10 (only 64-bit OS) or higher. IMPORTANT: Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are not supported.

                          • Hard disk 10 GB free space; SSD for best performance

                            • Display 1280x768 size or better

                            Are third-party plug-ins supported? (including Aurora HDR and Luminar 4)

                            In our other applications, third-party plug-ins are supported and send back the processed image as a new layer. 


                            One of the changes in LuminarAI is the switch from layers to a Local Adjustments tool and smart segmentation of our AI-powered tools. This is why there will be no third-party plugin support in LuminarAI. If you need to merge bracketed photos, we suggest using Aurora HDR in its standalone mode.

                            Can I use LuminarAI as a plug-in?

                            LuminarAI is a universal solution that can function both as a standalone editor and a plug-in.

                            Using LuminarAI as a plug-in, you’ll be able to bring creative and timesaving workflow to your host application. LuminarAI allows you to revolutionize the way you enhance photos but conveniently fits into your current workflow. 


                            LuminarAI can be used as a plug-in or extension for: 


                              • Lightroom Classic (starting from version 6)

                                • Photoshop (from version CS5)

                                  • Photos for macOS


                                  Does LuminarAI handle RAW files?

                                  Of course! LuminarAI RAW processing is based on our own powerful RAW engine. We regularly update our library and make our own improvements to provide perfect support for new cameras. You can check the full list of supported cameras here.

                                  Can I use other skies/textures/objects in LuminarAI?

                                  Yes, you can use your own sky textures and objects in LuminarAI.


                                  SkyAI will work with your own photos if they are in one of the following formats: JPEG, PNG and TIFF. Here are guidelines on preparing skies for best results. Augmented SkyAI will work with your own objects if they are in PNG format with the Alpha channel or JPG format with a fully black background.
