Relight backlit photos or darkened images in a click with the RelightAI feature. Luminar Neo calculates the depth of a photo and creates a 3D map, making it possible to spread light naturally in 3D space across a 2D image.

You can also relight the background and foreground separately — meaning you can darken parts of the image as well. This opens up an opportunity for creative relighting in order to bring your artistic vision to life.

Use both MaskAI and Layers for limitless creativity. MaskAI automates the masking process by identifying objects in the image and creating precise masks. You can always manually refine those masks with a brush if you choose to.

Layers open up a whole new level of creative expression, with endless possibilities for adding objects, textures, watermarks, and any other graphics to your images.
