TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2022
Skylum Luminar Neo
A growing trend in imaging software is the incorporation of artificial intelligence in creative imagery. TIPA members were impressed by the feature sets in Luminar Neo and how they help photographers invest more of their time in visual creativity than struggling with often complicated adjustments. Whether it’s combining images with multiple layers, “relighting” backlit or foreground subjects, background removal via masking, clearing sky of power or phone lines, enhancing bokeh, sky replacement, and, for those of us who neglect to clean their sensor prior to an important shoot, an amazing tool dubbed “Dust Removal AI”, Luminar Neo unlocks a host of tools that will make it easy to explore new paths of digital photo editing and expression. The software can be used as a standalone or plug-in and handles RAW files with ease.
