TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST IMAGING SOFTWARE ENTHUSIAST

Skylum Luminar Neo

This latest version builds on the company’s award-winning software by incorporating new AI-powered tools. New items include GenErase, GenExpand, and GenSwap, which, respectively, removes unwanted objects, expands a canvas, and replaces and then adds specific elements into a photo. The company points out that their AI tools are there to serve the photographer’s vision, not replace it, a sentiment widely praised by TIPA editors. Other new features include Neon and Glow, a visually striking manipulation that delivers dramatic nightscapes or adds a glowing, futuristic look to any scene, and Tilt/Shift Blur, that transforms “real” locations into miniature scale model representations. The software can be used as a standalone or Photoshop and Lightroom Classic plug-in, and is now available in an iPad version as well.
