AI Augmented Sky
Use Luminar’s new AI Augmented Sky tool to create stunning visual effects.

With new features such as the new AI Augmented Sky tool, the award-winning photo editing software expands into a creative powerhouse, allowing both photographers and digital artists to express themselves through new ways of editing images. The revolutionary feature enables you to place different objects directly in the sky. Creatives can choose objects from the Luminar database or use their own. This way, you can either create a realistic landscape or transform it into a surreal artwork. Even images with detailed backgrounds like trees or buildings are suitable without masking or layering. The AI Augmented Sky tool automatically detects a photo’s sky and adds the chosen object to the area. It’s fun to see how the objects seamlessly fit into the photograph. Foreground objects are taken into account automatically by content-aware technologies, making them blend naturally with the sky. Learn more about other features below or click on the following link to try the software on your own.

Equipped with a new architecture of the Face Features Detection Neural Network, Luminar 4.2 provides even better automation when it comes to enhancing portraits. The technology detects different faces in all sorts of positions. It can detect people of any hue of skin or age as well as spotting all the faces in a group photo.

  1. Well, fair play for doing this, I know this tool is classy for sky design, and a few cool features though, but I just couldn’t keep up. Way too creative for me!
