Photolemur. A short review

Photolemur. A short review

Photolemur is a very simple application to instantly get the most from any image. It uses AI to analyze your image and correct exposure, contrast, saturation, and clarity

Photolemur naturally knows just what to do for images. From faces to objects, to the sky — it analyzes and adjusts different aspects of your photo to achieve the best possible result. With a completely automated system, Photolemur gets you that epic end result faster than any human being.

Bulk picture enhancement.
Photolemur is designed to dramatically simplify batch image editing: enhance any amount of images at once, process RAW files, work with any volume of images. It takes care of the hard work, so you can enjoy the rest.
Photo Enhancement on Autopilot
The interface is the most simple ever. One screen to drop your images, and that’s all. No other control or sliders.
 Photolemur offers you the option to just drag & drop your photos and let the whole process of the photo editing be done by the technology itself. Only after Photolemur has finished the correction, yo have access to one opacity slider to select the amount od enhancement you want.

Final thoughts

This is a perfect app for any photographer that doesn’t nee any strong post-processing. The app does all the basic job and allows to export the file to any format.

For those in need or stronger, more complex post-processing, this can be a little frustrating. One solution is to configure the app as Lightroom or Photoshop plugins, and use Photolemur for the basic editing, re-import the image to Lightroom or Photoshop and do the adjustments you want.

Skylum is now working with Photolemur for their AI Lab That will for sure announce future improvements for the Luminar AI filter.

For a retail price of $34,99, it is a little expensive.;;

Affinity Photo for iPad got strong improvements

Affinity Photo for iPad got strong improvements

Apple’s reigning ‘App of the Year’, Affinity Photo for iPad, now includes even more powerful professional features.

Developer Serif has issued the third substantial free update to the app since June when Affinity Photo for iPad was launched on stage at WWDC2017. To celebrate, for a limited time, buyers can also claim three bonus content packs made specially to harness the creativity of the app on iOS.  Designed to be the first complete, professional photo editing app for iPad, Affinity Photo was selected as the 2017 ‘App of the Year’ by Apple, as well as featuring in countless ‘best of’ end-of-year lists. The latest version, 1.6.7, includes a raft of enhancements which make it even more capable of handling a full professional workflow on the go:

New Features

  • Save overwrites back to the same location, without needing to create a copy
  • Shoot direct in RAW or HDR from within the app
  • Major upgrades for RAW processing including adjusting shadows, highlights and clarity on RAW images
  • Ability to add your own fonts
  • Opening and editing files in place directly from the iOS Files app
  • A new ‘Solo Layer View’ mode, allowing you to isolate individual layers instantly
  • Further enhancements to the handy Drag & Drop functions introduced with iOS11
  • A new ‘Show Touches’ option to create more detailed screen captures – great for users who create tutorials
Serif Managing Director Ashley Hewson says: “These latest additions will make working life simpler than ever for photographers who have embraced Affinity Photo and the iPad as the core of their professional workflow.

“Affinity Photo was created to take full advantage of the amazing technology the latest iPads offer, and our developers continue to work tirelessly to cement its reputation as the benchmark for creative apps on iOS.”

Ashley Hewson adds: “Improved RAW editing and the added convenience of using Files and Drag & Drop are further steps forward. And we’re delighted to see so many users are already publishing their own tutorials, so the ‘show touches’ screen-recording capability is really big news for them.
“Meanwhile Solo Layer View means you can instantly isolate a particular layer to work on, even in the most complex multi-layered documents. It all adds up to a faster, smoother workflow than ever, to take wherever you go.”

To celebrate the latest update, for two weeks Affinity Photo for iPad is being offered with two free brush packs and a macro pack, together worth almost as much as the app itself (offer ends 8 March).

They are:

  • Luminance Brush Pack (value £9.99 / $9.99): A vibrant collection of 13 breath taking light effect brushes
  • Retouch Brush Pack (value £9.99 / $9.99): 20 studio quality retouch brushes for enhancing portraits
  • Live Filters Macro Pack: Harness the full power of 28 non-destructive live filter layers

Affinity Photo for iPad is priced £19.99 / US$19.99 / 21,99€ (subject to regional currency variations) with no subscription from the App Store.

Affinity Photo for iPad is compatible with the iPad Pro 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch

, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, and optimised for Apple Pencil. For more information go to affinity.serif.com/ipad-update. Existing users should claim the free update by following the prompts in the app.
