Do you want to help shape Luminar Neo’s future?
Skylum’s goal is to guarantee the best possible product quality and ensure that all Luminar artists are satisfied with Luminar Neo when it’s released in February. That’s why it’s time to share some exciting news with you.
On December 28, 2021, we launched an exclusive Early Access version of Luminar Neo that showcases new features. If you’ve bought Luminar Neo and agree to actively participate in shaping its future, we invite you to download the Early Access version. On January 13, we released the first update to it.
You will be able to influence the product’s development by providing feedback within the Luminar Neo Early Access app. The Skylum Team will be collecting feedback until January 20, 2022. The most helpful, insightful, and active users will receive thank you gifts for their input.
The Early Access version will include the new engine and the following four features:
At the release in February, all users will receive most of the functionality currently available in Luminar AI, Presets and Layers functionality, and a version of the new engine that delivers even better performance. Portrait Background Removal AI and Mask AI will be available in the first free update to Luminar Neo.
Please keep in mind that the Early Access version of Luminar Neo is still in progress. You will receive updates to this version throughout January. To make sure that your feedback is valuable and relevant, we’d be grateful if you focused on the three new features and kept in mind that some functionality is absent and will be added later in the main release.
