Hello, this is E-M-W.
Skylum's Luminar Neo has many high-performance and unique features not found in existing photo editing software.
This time, I will introduce Sky Enhancer AI.
What is Sky Enhancer AI
Sky Enhancer AI is a function that beautifully corrects only the sky part of a photo.
To correct only the sky using traditional photo editing software, it was necessary to create a layer, select only the sky part using a masking tool, and correct it.
However, using Sky Enhancer AI, you don't need layers or masking tools; you can instantly correct just the sky part.
Sky Enhancer AI has artificial intelligence that analyzes the sky range from the entire photo and makes the optimal correction.
How to Use Sky Enhancer AI
To use Sky Enhancer AI, access Sky Enhancer AI in Essential Tools.
Sky Enhancer AI is a simple feature that requires only one slider to adjust. Still, when you move the slider, artificial intelligence recognizes the area of the sky in the photo, and it makes adjustments to improve the texture of the sky and clouds, as well as brightness, contrast, and colour saturation to the optimum condition.
In other words, the sky will be beautifully corrected as you watch by moving the slider.
Even after hearing this explanation, many might wonder if correcting only the sky area so quickly without masking or layers is possible. You may not be able to believe it.
Let's use Sky Enhancer AI to correct only the sky area.
Sky Enhancer AI example
First, let's use Sky Enhancer AI to correct this photo of Hawaii's beautiful ocean, modern buildings, and vast sky. The photo below has been edited using Sky Enhancer AI at 60. Just by moving the Sky Enhancer AI slider, the pale sky changed to a deep blue, and the flat white clouds became more three-dimensional, creating a dynamic sky.
Instead of just filling the sky with blue, it applies a correction that uses a gradation so that the colour density at the bottom of the sky becomes gradually lighter than the colour density at the top. The sky has a natural finish.
Another advantage of Sky Enhancer AI is that it accurately recognizes and corrects only the sky area without making any corrections for the sea, which has a similar colour to the sky.
Now, move to the next photo.
This one has a complex intertwining of trees and powerlines in the sky in the background, so masking techniques and time would be required to correct the sky using other photo editing software. The photo above uses Sky Enhancer AI at 60.

However, with Sky Enhancer AI, fixing a sky with complex objects is effortless. A simple slider adjustment is all it takes, and it only takes a few seconds.
Next, let's correct this photo of the five-storied pagoda. Is it possible to correct such an extremely overexposed sky? Let’s try.
When I set the amount of Sky Enhancer AI to the maximum amount of 100, it corrected the blue sky even though it was significantly overexposed. I'm satisfied with this, but some people may want to make the sky bluer and the clouds more toned.
It will be a push in a case like this, but let's add another Sky Enhancer AI. You can layer effects by closing the AI tool panel and applying Sky Enhancer again.
The photo above shows Sky Enhancer AI applied twice at 100 and 30.
By applying Sky Enhancer AI twice, the effect has been enhanced, making the sky even bluer and the gradations of the clouds more distinct.

Easy Correction with Accent AI
Sky Enhancer AI is even more effective when combined with other tools.
The combination with Accent AI is excellent; you can finish editing landscape photos quickly.Use Accent AI from Essential Tools to make basic corrections to the photo. I was able to adjust the exposure, saturation, and contrast instantly by moving the slider to 50. However, more than Accent AI was needed to correct the sky. So, I decided to apply Sky Enhancer AI as well.
Use Sky Enhancer AI to correct only the sky. I moved the slider to 50, and it was completed in just a moment.
This time, photo editing was completed by simply moving two sliders of two tools: Sky Enhancer AI and Accent AI.

With Sky Enhancer AI, you can get a beautiful sky by moving the slider.
You can use Sky Enhancer AI on landscape photos you have taken in the past. By making the sky more beautiful, you can turn them into splendid photos.
