Skylum releases Luminar 2018 with AI Sky Enhancer filter.

Skylum releases Luminar 2018 with AI Sky Enhancer filter.

Skylum Software today released a free update to its award-winning Luminar photo editor and presented the AI Sky Enhancer filter. Developed in the company’s AI Lab, AI Sky Enhancer adds depth, definition, and detail to any sky almost instantly, with only a swipe of a slider. 

AI Sky Enhancer is a revolutionary new tool for automatically enhancing skies and making them beautiful without the need for masks and layers. This will save photographers an enormous amount of time in post-processing while allowing photographers of any skill level to achieve dramatic skies.  

Hundreds of thousands of photos incorporating varying degrees of tonal skies were used to train a deep neural network that powers the AI Sky Enhancer filter and allow Luminar to analyze each image and detect (and adjust) only the sky. The result is complete automated control of the sky. AI Sky Enhancer works with sunsets, blue skies, partly sunny skies, storm clouds, and virtually any other sky scene imaginable. 

“And while this update is great by itself, it’s just the beginning. Luminar now includes an innovative core neural processing engine that enables all Luminar users to harness the power of AI. This will give the Skylum team the possibility to introduce more smart and automated tools more frequently,” explains Dima Sytnik, CTO and co-founder of Skylum. “Expect more innovative AI-powered features in Luminar in the near future.”

 The new AI-powered filter comes ahead of Luminar 3 with Libraries, which will start being rolled out to Luminar owners on December 18. Skylum has made the unprecedented decision to include every new feature of Luminar — big and small — at no additional cost to current Luminar 2018 owners until late 2019. This will include Luminar 3 with Libraries, which will allow photographers to organize, browse, and edit images on the fly. Additionally, Luminar customers don’t have to pay an annual subscription fee. New and current users of Luminar will also receive a value-added promotional package including a three-month Pro Membership to ViewBug ($42 value), a two-month Pro Membership to KelbyOne ($40 value), a choice of any ebook from Rocky Nook ($40 value), the Awesome Landscapes Tutorial from Daniel Kordan ($80 value), and a $20 gift card toward the purchase of any Manfrotto/Gitzo product valued at $120 or more. 

Luminar is available to new customers for just $59/€59/£53. Current users of other Skylum software including Aurora HDR, Photolemur, and Skylum legacy products can purchase Luminar for the special price of $49/€49/£44.

ON1 announces ON1 Photo Raw 2019

ON1 announces ON1 Photo Raw 2019

ON1 Photo RAW 2019, an all­ new photo editing experience and a major upgrade to ON1 Photo RAW, will be available this November.

ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will include an abundance of new features and technologies along with a streamlined workflow that is elegant, powerful, and easy to learn. Notable new features include a new non­destructive workflow for layers, auto­alignment of layers, focus stacking, a new portrait module, a new AI­powered masking tool, a new text tool, new digital asset management updates and more. ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will include the tools photographers need in a single well thought out photography workflow application.

Dan Harlacher, VP for Products at ON1 states, “ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will give photographers the features they use the most from the Lightroom® and Photoshop® worlds in a single application. This is what we mean by an all­new photo editing experience. We want to keep the photographer’s workflow fast and efficient.”

 ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will also include significant enhancements to the migration process for customers looking to switch from Lightroom®. Version 2019 will be one of the first solutions to utilize AI­powered algorithms to transfer and display Lightroom edited photos in ON1 Photo RAW 2019. The transferred settings will also remain non­destructive and be re­editable inside ON1 Photo RAW 2019. 

“A big hurdle for customers looking to adopt a new workflow is the fear of losing years and years of work. We want to remove that hurdle by giving them the ability to keep their edited photos and more importantly keep them in a non­destructive workflow when making the switch to Photo RAW,” says Craig Keudell, President of ON1.

The ON1 community continues to drive the development of ON1 Photo RAW based on what’s most important for their photo editing needs.  Every new feature and improvement made in version 2019 is a direct result of community input through the ON1 Photo RAW Project.

 

  • A New Workflow for Layers – ON1 Layers will no longer be a separate module. Instead, the power of layers will be accessible within the non­destructive workflow inside of Develop and Effects. This will allow for creating or editing multi­layered files, including raw files, and keep the non­destructive settings for each photo Customers will also be able to move, size, and mask each layer. More importantly, and a new concept, each layer has its non­destructive settings, all the way back to the original file. What’s most exciting is if you are working with raw files, powerful adjustments like exposure, highlights, shadows, and camera profiles can now be processed using the raw data in a layered photo workflow. All without having to change modules or applications.
  • New Lightroom Photo Settings Migration – New AI­powered algorithms will give customers the ability to transfer Lightroom edited photos, keep the non­destructive settings, and move them into ON1 Photo The updated Lightroom Migration Tool in

version 2019 will transfer almost every edit you can make in Lightroom including raw processing, crop, retouching, and local adjustments along with folders, photos, albums, and metadata.

  • New Focus Stacking – Automatically blend a series of photos at different focus distances to increase depth­of­field. It’s so fast, you can adjust the focus in real­time, just like changing the focus on your lenses. Think of it like HDR, but for focus instead of exposure.
  • New Auto­Align Layers – Easily combine multiple photos as layers, then automatically align them based on image content, making it easy to mask and blend them
  • New AI Masking Tool (coming in December) – This new tool, powered by AI, will allow customers to easily identify areas of your photo to create a selection or mask and the AI technology detects your subject matter and automatically creates a beautiful
  • New Portrait Module – The new Portrait module will automatically detect faces in your photo allowing you to easily retouch, smooth skin, brighten and sharpen eyes, and whiten
  • New Text Tool – The new text tool will be perfect for creating posters, adding your byline or adding editing annotations. Easily control font size, color, position, and more and then save a preset to add the same text overlay to a batch of photos
  • New Master Keyword List – Now you can see every keyword you use in a single, searchable list. You can quickly apply, clear, edit, or delete
  • Improved Local Adjustments – Local adjustments will be updated to use the raw processing data. This allows for more highlight and shadow details with more tonal range.
  • New Layered HDR Workflow – With the powerful new non­destructive live layers you can combine other photos, text or alternate exposures with your HDR photos. Use the powerful masking tools to combine multiple HDR renditions
  • New Filter Options in Effects ­ We have added dedicated film grain, curves, color adjustment filters to Effects. This lets you add film grain to color photos and make advanced, targeted color and tone adjustments faster. There’s even a new filter selector that allows you to search for filters, learn what they do and even view a sample before you add
  • New User Interface – The new user interface will have a fresh and modern feel. Overall contrast has been reduced to make photos stand out along with a new font to help increase readability. Updated, icons, tabs, and sliders will also take up less visual
  • New Cameras and Lenses – Added support for the latest cameras and

All of it is easy to follow along and fun.  A 30­day free trial of ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will be available when the product officially arrives this November. A single purchase of ON1 Photo RAW 2019 includes both macOS and Windows installers and activation for up to five computers.

The first free update will arrive soon after the initial release (in December) and include a new AI­powered tool for creating masks.  

Craig Keudell states, “You will see AI­powered technologies manifest into Photo RAW where it makes sense. We aren’t looking to use these technologies to take anything away from the creative process, but to enhance it and make it much more efficient.”

ON1 is also working on solving additional problems for customers who share files across multiple computers or work environments as well as those customers who are shooting video as part of their photography process. 

“As we peek into the not so distant future, we have much bigger plans at ON1. We will continue to be a transparent company when it comes to what we are building, but we are not quite ready to unveil what we have in store for the photography community just yet. Rest assured, ON1 is researching and building exciting new features and products to benefit all levels of photographers for years to come,” says Craig.

Alien Skin Software Announces Exposure X4, Advanced RAW Photo Editor 

Exposure X4 includes improved highlight/shadow recovery – fully adjustable light effects – perspective and keystone correction – monitored folders for tethered shooting – smart collections – speed boosts 

Alien Skin Software announced the release of Exposure X4, the latest version of their award-winning RAW photo editor and organizer. Exposure is a non-destructive photo editor that enables photographers to create beautiful images and complete their full workflow. It is a subscription-free solution that is the choice of today’s most accomplished creative photographers.  Exposure continues to grow, with Exposure X4 giving photographers more creative control over their edits, and enabling them to achieve the very best quality possible from their RAW files,” said Alien Skin CEO Finley Lee. “It’s the fastest, most intuitive way for photographers to create beautiful images.”

This release of Exposure X4 introduces significant new enhancements. Improved shadow and highlight recovery enable photographers to extract the maximum amount of detail from their RAW images, and faster photo processing times speed up their editing. Photographers now have complete control of the placement and rotation of Exposure’s high-quality light effects. This makes it possible to precisely place natural-looking effects like sun rays and light leaks in an image, enabling gorgeous new creative looks. The new transform tools enable photographers to easily correct tilted or skewed perspective, such as key stoning of buildings in architectural photography. The addition of monitored folders for tethered shooting is great news for studio photographers, who can now edit, cull, and share images from Exposure during a shoot. Smart collections make use of Exposure’s robust metadata handling to automatically populate collections based on camera metadata and criteria that photographers specify. Keywords, ratings, folder location, and shutter speed are among the metadata that Exposure can query to build a smart collection. This helps to automate the process of image organization, enabling photographers to focus on creative choices. Exposure’s already considerable speed gets a boost with several ways: file exports are now up to 60% faster, image rendering is up to 30% faster, and launch times have been reduced by a third.  

Exposure began in 2005 as a film simulation plug-in for Photoshop and was immediately embraced by digital photographers of all genres seeking to recapture the organic look of film. Over the years, Exposure became a legend among plug-ins and evolved into a standalone full-featured editing and organizing solution. Today, Exposure provides photographers with a complete selection of creative editing and retouching tools, including hundreds of customizable presets that encompass analog film and other styles. Outstanding RAW processing quality helps photographers achieve exceptional image quality in their edits. Exposure also includes advanced special effects that deliver striking looks like bokeh, vignette, and film grain. 

Exposure’s full-featured organizing tools – collections, keywords, virtual copies, and more – make it the ideal photo management solution. Its catalog-free approach provides photographers with a faster, more intuitive approach to their organizing work. Exposure also streamlines the photography workflow. Photographers browse directly to their photos, skipping the unnecessary step of importing into a catalog. This enables them to start culling, organizing, and editing their shoots without delay. An intuitive, highly customizable interface puts everything on screen, without the need to switch between browsing and editing modules. Refinements like multi-monitor support and a complete set of keyboard shortcuts enable efficient workflows. Photographers can also use Exposure as a creative editing plug-in with other editors such as Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. No subscription is required. Today’s best photographers use Exposure to create beautiful images. Among them is the master photographer and educator Sue Bryce. “Exposure is every look I’ve ever wanted, all in one software product. It truly replicates every type of film you could possibly imagine, and helps me bring a painterly, Old Masters-feel to my images,” she said.

Additional enhancements include the following:

  • New print presets for standard paper sizes, making it easy to print photos directly from Exposure
  • A Lightroom migration tool that brings Lightroom organizational metadata such as keywords and ratings into Exposure, helping those who want to use existing photo libraries with Exposure
  • Ability to inspect RGB values at any position in a photo, for accurate color correction and color grading
  • Expanded workflow options for image copying and exporting
  • Support for additional cameras and lenses, including popular models from Fujifilm, Canon, Sigma, Sony, Nikon, and Olympus

 Pricing and Availability

Exposure X4 is available now from www.alienskin.com for $149. Upgrade pricing is available to owners of previous versions of Exposure for $99.  

Exposure X4 is also available in the Exposure X4 Bundle. This integrated collection bundles Exposure with Alien Skin’s award-winning Blow-Up and Snap Art tools to add high-quality upsizing and natural media special effects. It is available for $199. Owners of one or more of the current apps in the Exposure X3 Bundle can purchase for $119. A 30-day fully-featured free trial of Exposure is available. Visit www.alienskin.com/exposure to learn more and download the trial. 

Exposure X4 may be used as a standalone program or as a set of plug-ins. When used as a set of plug-ins, it requires one of the following host applications:         

  • Adobe Photoshop CS6 or Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 or newer
  • Adobe Lightroom 6 or Adobe Lightroom CC 2015 or newer

    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.
