Elevate Your Travel Photos

Now that you know how to remove unwanted stuff from your travel pictures, let's make them even more eye-catching with Luminar Neo. We'll also talk about two special tools, Sky AI and Enhance AI!

Sky AI

Sometimes, the sky in your travel photos isn't as pretty as you want it to be. No worries! Sky AI can swap it out with a better one. Turn a gloomy day into a stunning sunset or a clear blue sky with fluffy clouds!

This feature isn't just a simple photo filter—it's a fusion of machine learning and advanced algorithms. But what does that mean, you ask? Think of machine learning as a computer teaching itself. Over time, it has studied thousands of photos, learning what skies look like, how they blend with various landscapes, and how to seamlessly merge them into your pictures.

When you decide to switch out a sky in your photo, Sky AI gets to work. First, it spots the sky area and distinguishes it from trees, buildings, people, and other objects. It's clever enough to tackle tricky parts, like gaps between leaves or reflections in water.

Next, when you choose a new sky, the algorithm goes to work. It meticulously analyzes both your original photo and the new sky selection. It matches the lighting, colors, and perspective, ensuring that the replacement sky looks completely natural, not like it was pasted on.

Step-by-Step Guide to Sky AI:

  1. Launch Luminar Neo on your computer. Click "Add Photos" in the "Catalog" menu, then go to the "Edit" menu.

  2. On the right side, you'll find various editing tools. Click on "Favorites" and choose "Sky AI." You'll see a list of different skies—pick the one you like.

  3. After selecting a sky, use the sliders below to adjust the sky's orientation or make changes for reflections if there's water in your photo.

  4. Make sure the sky's lighting and color match the rest of your photo. The "Sky Adjustments" tab will help you with this.

  5. Sometimes, it helps to see a before-and-after view. Click the "Before/After" button to compare your edits to the original.

  6. Once you're happy with your edits, go to the "Share to" menu and save your masterpiece in your preferred format and location.
