    SKYLUM LAUNCHES AN EXCITING NEW UPDATE TO THE WORLD’S FIRST FULLY AI-DRIVEN PHOTO ENHANCEMENT TOOL

    With Photolemur, Skylum has taken the concept of photo enhancement back down to earth, bringing the complex process of photo editing to the hands of mass consumers all over the world. The software has been developed with regular folks in mind – camera users who might not have the time for or a good grasp of editing, from amateur and beginner photographers to moms, bloggers, and occasional shooters. 

    Designed as an intelligent automated photo assistant that enhances images in the same way a professional photographer would, but much quicker than any standard editing software, Photolemur only requires its users to drag and drop an image. It takes care of the rest by automatically making pro-level enhancements and adjustments to the image within minutes. Photolemur uses 14 different technologies to think for itself, analyzing what aspects of a photo need to be tweaked to bring the image to its best. It saves its users from going through the long editing process or relying on unintelligent filters that aren’t exactly tailor-made for that particular image. The software is proving to be a gamechanger in the photography space, allowing everyone from basic social media users and amateur bloggers to the more seasoned pros to create the perfect photo. Photolemur is transforming the photography industry, benefitting both casual photographers and professionals, reducing an hour of complex photo editing to mere minutes. 

    At the heart of Photolemur is a smart engine with powerful technology that has analyzed millions of photos to find editing patterns. It enhances each photo accordingly based on those patterns. It utilizes similar technology used in manual editing software, from color recovery and noise reduction to auto color temperature and exposure compensation. Both pro photographers and casual shooters can trust its AI technology to recognize the differences in objects and make smart decisions when choosing the correct adjustments. The software also allows users to batch enhance up to 200 photos at a time, making it a real time saver for users who don’t have a lot of hours to invest in photo editing. With this new update, Photolemur now fixes skin imperfections, whitens teeth, smoothes skin and hair, and sharpens and widens eyes, making it an ideal tool for casual photographers and social media enthusiasts. By simplifying the editing process, seamlessly creating pro-level adjustments to any photo without any effort from its users, Photolemur is sweeping not only the photography community but also the mass market. Photolemur is ahead of the trends in the photography industry, using its intuitive AI technology to make photo editing more accessible and to bring photography back to where it matters most, the millions of camera shooters who use it to capture memories and record important moments in their lives. 

    Until September 13, 2018, Photolemur 3 is available at a special pre-order price for $49 for a family licence (5 activations) with a collection of bonuses. The product will be released on September 14, 2018. 

    Photolemur 3.0 Regular Pricing (starting on September 14):

    • Current users may upgrade at a price of $19
    • New users can purchase Photolemur 3.0 Family at a price of $59
    • New users can purchase Photolemur 3.0 Single at a price of $39

    Photolemur 3 includes several updates across the software, from technology to user interface.

    • Automatic face enhancement with skin retouch and teeth whitening. This feature detects and clears skin imperfections as well as whitens teeth for a more glowing portrait.
    • Smart eyes enlarge. This feature analyzes your subjects’ eyes and makes eye enlargements accordingly.
    • Adding styles to photos. Six new, crazily creative styles are now available to really get the look you want.
    • New menu for opacity settings
    • Quick access menu for face enhancement, lens correction, and eyes enlarge
    • Apply settings from one image to all images in a batch, maximum 200 images
    • SmugMug export for Mac
    • Photolemur is the world’s first fully automated AI-driven photo enhancement software, available on Windows & Mac.
    • Winner of the 2018 Red Dot Award for High Design Quality
    • It is a leader in AI technology in the photography industry. This smart and intuitive software creates the perfect, pro-level photo in seconds without any help from users.
    • Founded in 2014, and officially launched in 2017, Photolemur now has over 130,000 users across the world.
    • Photolemur can be used as stand-alone photography software for the more inexperienced users, or as an add-on within Photos and Lightroom on Mac for professional photographers. It is the biggest time-saving tool in photography history, allowing users to enhance up to 200 photos per batch.
    • Created by the entrepreneurs behind Skylum (formerly Macphun), one of the fastest growing photo software companies in the world, to cater to everyone from the casual photography market and social media users to seasoned pros.
    • Social media sharing at the click of a button, with Facebook, Twitter & Flickr already aboard. Instagram and SmugMug to follow.

    Skylum adds four globe-trotting landscape photographers to its ambassador team

    World-famous landscape photographers Iurie Belegurschi, Daniel Kordan, Max Rive, and Dr. Kah-Wai Lin join Skylum’s ambassador team

    Skylum has teamed up with four all-star landscape photographers from around the globe to help hone its software vision and make Luminar and Aurora HDR the best post-production solutions for landscape photography. 

    Iurie Belegurschi, Daniel Kordan, Max Rive, and Dr. Kah-Wai Lin join Jerry Ghionis, Matthew Jordan Smith, Joel Grimes, and Dixie Dixon to bring Skylum’s ambassador team to a total of eight photographers. The four new Skylum ambassadors live and travel around the globe, capturing the most beautiful and unique photographs of nature our world has to offer. 

    Ambassadors Belegurschi, Kordan, Rive, and Lin are working alongside Skylum to make products better fit the needs of landscape and travel photographers around the globe and judge an awesome collection of photography contests, including those currently taking place, for which the grand prize is a free trip with Iceland Photo Tours. There will also be various speaking engagements put on by the ambassadors, as well as future photowalks and meet ups with the photography community to help spread the word about how Luminar and Aurora HDR are changing the world of post-production in landscape photography.

    Iurie Belegurschi

    Although born in Moldova, Iurie Belegurschi has spent the last twelve years calling the Nordic countryside of Iceland his home. Inspired by the incredible light and landscapes, Belegurschi has spent over a decade capturing the beautiful scenes and seascapes, resulting in photos that have won international accolades, and adorned the pages of leading publications and exhibitions. In 2012, Iurie founded Iceland Photo Tours, which serves as a way for Iurie to share his expertise of Iceland and its terrain with passionate photographers from around the world.  

    “I’m beyond excited to join Skylum’s talented team of ambassadors to help shape the programs that ensure I spend less time in front of a computer and more time behind a camera on a photo adventure.” — Iurie Belegurschi

    Daniel Kordan

    Even if the name Daniel Kordan fails to ring a bell, don’t be surprised if you recognize a photograph or two of his. Known for incredible landscapes, Kordan’s work has been published in National Geographic, Discovery, and Photography Week — not to mention Skylum’s own product page a time or two. His growing list of clients including Apple and Red Bull, and as of late Kordan also teaches courses to photographers from all over the world on how to find their unique style and inspiration in nature. 

    “It’s great to be a part of Skylum alongside an incredible lineup of photographers from around the world. I’m excited to bring my vision and expertise to the table to help Skylum develop its software to better suit the needs of landscape photographers.” — Daniel Kordan

    Max Rive

    It wasn’t until 2008, when Max Rive first picked up a camera to document a mountain trip, that he became ingrained in the world of photography. In the decade since, Rive has won International Landscape Photographer of the Year in 2017 and travelled the world capturing beautiful landscape shots in Chile, Argentina, Greenland, Sweden, Scotland, Norway, New Zealand, and beyond. 

    “Luminar is great in that it enables me to process my photos exactly how I envision them in my head through the cleverly curated toolset and growing collection of filters. It’s great to be a part of the Skylum team and I’m excited to help push the programs further and connect with the Skylum community.” — Max Rive

    Kah-Wai Lin

    As if an M.D. degree from Lviv National Medical University in Ukraine and a Ph.D. degree in medical science from Karolinska Institute in Sweden wasn’t enough, Kah-Wai Lin can also add an award-winning portfolio of incredible landscapes photographs to the resume. Dr. Lin has explored and photographed some of the most diverse and remote places on Earth, visiting over 30 countries and winning more than 200 awards, along the way. His accolades include 1st place at the International Photography Award 2015 and being named one of the top 10 exhibitors in the world by Photographic Society of America in both 2015 and 2016.

    “I’m very much looking forward to join the Skylum team of ambassadors. It’ll serves as a great opportunity to connect with Skylum users spanning the globe. Luminar has quickly become my go-to photo editing software by taking the stress out of post-processing, making it faster and easier than any other program I’ve used.” — Kah-Wai Lin
