Luminar Neo Unveils a New Look and Next-Level Features This Spring

Skylum announces a major update to Luminar Neo, featuring a suite of cutting-edge new tools and a fresh look coming later this month.

The upcoming update includes the following key features aimed at streamlining the photo editing experience and will be available on April 25:

  • Twilight Enhancer AI: Replicate the ethereal ambiance of the blue and golden hours around dawn and dusk, enhancing your landscape and outdoor photographs with creative color effects. Using a single slider, you can adjust a sunrise scene to accentuate that mesmerizing pink-blue spectrum of light.

    • Water Enhancer AI: Transform a muddy pond into a shimmering turquoise pool with a few simple adjustments. This tool allows you to change the color of the water and modify other qualities like texture and depth with unprecedented ease and precision.

      • Batch HDR: Streamline your workflow with simultaneous batch processing, allowing for efficient editing of up to 1000 images using dynamic bracket creation and drag-and-drop organization.

        • Object Select AI: Quickly create masks with a single click for specific subjects, objects, and details in images for precision edits and faster workflow. Whether you want to brighten someone’s eyes in a portrait or enhance the details of a bird in flight, Object Select allows you to focus your edits anywhere in the photo with ease.

          • Luminosity Masking: Target specific areas of an image based on brightness levels with this versatile feature, enabling selective adjustments to highlights, midtones, and shadows.Waiting Statuses: Introducing new waiting status animations, which keep you informed of how far along the app is during image loading and processing.

          Alongside these advancements, Skylum is revamping the look and feel of Luminar Neo to better reflect its vision for the brand and the ecosystem of applications.

          This encompasses a redesigned logo and product icon, a refreshed color palette, and subtle stylistic changes within the Luminar Neo desktop application.

          In addition, we’re introducing Landscape, a new category dedicated to landscape photography that showcases all the essential tools in one place, including some familiar features such as Sky AI and Atmosphere. With this specialized collection,  photographers have everything they need to bring their landscape scenes to life.

          The new features and a new visual identity will be implemented with the next product update on April 25 for all Luminar Neo customers, immediately and at no extra cost. Batch HDR will be available to the owners of the HDR Merge Extension (either purchased separately in the past, as a part of a subscription, or as part of a Lifetime purchase starting from July 1, 2023).
