At Skylum, we dedicate ourselves to making software that allows millions of photographers to make incredible images faster than ever before.

With Luminar 3 and its built-in machine-learning tools like Accent AI 2.0 and AI Sky Enhancer, we’ve made it easier than ever for users to create award-winning images.

And speaking of awards, this morning, the Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awarded Luminar an award for Best Photo Editing Software. EISA cited Luminar’s ability to automate time-consuming tasks through artificial intelligence.

Judged by 17 international photography magazines, the EISA award follows Luminar being awarded Best Imaging Software by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) earlier this year.

“Skylum’s Luminar 3, soon to witness an update to v4, is an image-editing program for Mac OS and Windows that allows photographers of all skill levels to optimise their pictures with just a few mouse clicks — and with stunning results,” reads the award citation. “This is made possible thanks to artificial intelligence technology. Editing, selecting and masking are all automated, and suddenly these tedious tasks that previously could only be done manually are now achieved within a second.”

We are also preparing to release Luminar 4 this fall, which will include several new features, such as the world’s first automated AI Sky Replacement tool.

“We’re so excited that EISA has chosen Luminar as ‘Best Photo Editing Software,” said Alex Tsepko, CEO of Skylum. “As we’ve developed Luminar over the past few years, we’ve built it into a piece of software that helps photographers enhance their images like never before, through innovative technologies that can’t be found anywhere else. With Luminar 4 on the horizon, we can’t wait to see the exciting new technologies we’ve developed be put to use.”

The machine-learning tools that Luminar 3 includes were developed in Skylum’s AI Lab. We’ve invested in the nascent field over the last several years, helping to bring photographers these one-of-a-kind tools that ease common image editing headaches. Developed in Skylum’s AI Lab, these tools allow a single smart slider to complete the work of several tools, saving time and enabling casual photographers to achieve pro-like results quickly and easily.

And don’t just take our word for it — our products are used by several well-known professional photographers, including Skylum Ambassadors like Marco Grassi, Ilya Nodia, Kah-Wai Lin, Trey Ratcliff, Niels Dam, Elena Liseykina, David Sarwono, Michele Grenier, Trace Hudson and many others.

With new features on the horizon for Luminar 4, and the continued advancements of machine-learning in the Luminar platform, now’s the perfect time to try it out. Click here to download your free trial today!
