Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is LuminarAI?

    LuminarAI is an all-new application and plug-in that will be released during the holiday season. It is the first fully AI-powered image editing software in the world.


    While Skylum is well-known for building software that taps into artificial intelligence for great results, LuminarAI is entirely different. 


    We built LuminarAI with artificial intelligence at its core. Artificial intelligence saves you time and effort. Before, traditional editing software was outdated. It was time-consuming and hard to learn. It required effort and skills to get satisfying results. With LuminarAI, you can create great-looking photos much faster. It’s perfect for anyone, of any skill level. 


    While other companies use artificial intelligence as a catchphrase, LuminarAI is packed full of truly smart technology. LuminarAI features many AI tools that allow you to get more done in less time. Innovations like SkyAI, FaceAI, BodyAI, IrisAI, AtmosphereAI and more give your images a memorable style and a competitive edge. Without sacrificing quality, speed or creative options.

  • Who is LuminarAI for?

    When you use LuminarAI, the experience is totally different from any traditional photo editor. You will quickly discover it is unlike any other tool you ever used. You will immediately experience results.

      • If you want amazing photos quickly, without extra complexity or wasted time, LuminarAI is for you. 
      • If you want to solve problems, LuminarAI is for you.
      • If you care more about the results created, than the process used, LuminarAI is for you.

      LuminarAI helps you create high-quality photo content. It’s the perfect tool to help you create photos to tell your story in an engaging way. You can create pro-quality results without the need to hire a professional retoucher. You’ll find inspiration and creative guidance when editing your images. LuminarAI is an affordable way to get amazing photos.

    • When will LuminarAI be available?

      We expect LuminarAI to ship this holiday season for Mac and Windows. As we get closer to release, an expected date will be announced.

                              • Is LuminarAI the next version of Luminar 4?

                                LuminarAI is a brand new product. It is not an upgrade to Luminar 4. 


                                LuminarAI is an alternative to traditional photo editors in general. 


                                We offer a new approach to editing your images, powered by artificial intelligence. We believe that traditional photo editing is outdated and slow. It takes too much energy and time. Photo editing doesn’t have to be complex (even if you want professional results).


                                LuminarAI changes everything. When you first open a picture, your image is analyzed instantly. Choose from recommendations to improve your image. High-quality Templates offer suggestions from top photographers and retouchers. These can produce the results you want in just one or two clicks.


                                But you retain complete control thanks to the beautiful Interface and useful AI-powered tools. Solve problems and unlock new creativity to create a beautiful photo faster. LuminarAI is built from the perfect combination of artificial intelligence and expertise. LuminarAI has a lot of editing power and fun under the hood. 


                                We know that you’ll enjoy it. We can’t wait to start using it ourselves.
