Going the Step Beyond
By now, you probably know that Luminar has some fantastic editing tools (both basic and advanced), but what you may not know is that you can also use Luminar for photo retouching as well. Where editing deals with global adjustments (white balance, contrast, exposure, etc.) photo retouching consists of very localized changes that allow you to get rid of elements in your frame that distract from the subject of your photo or simply just don’t look good.
For pictures of people, this can be anything from acne or wrinkles on the face to blood vessels in the whites of the eyes. In a landscape, there could be a house that is marring an otherwise pristine nature shot, power lines running across your sky, or tourists in the background of an otherwise iconic shot. Regardless of what the unwanted element is, you know your photo would look better without it. That’s when it’s time to use Luminar’s photo retouching tools.
