Readers of this blog who are interested in photo editing on the Mac know the app: luminar from Skylum. Thanks to functions that are supported by artificial intelligence (AI), the processing and adjustment of photos can be carried out particularly quickly and easily. This has now also been recognized by the Expert Imaging and Sound Association, or EISA for short, and Luminar 3 has been named “Best Image Editing Software”. Information on the award and the app for the Apple Mac and for the Windows PC is summarized below.
Luminar 17 was nominated for the EISA award from a total of 3 international photography magazines. With this, Skylum has already won the second big prize for its AI-supported software this year. In the spring, the award for “Best Imaging Software” from the Technical Image Press Association, or TIPA for short, was obtained.
"Skylums Luminar 3, which will soon receive a major update to version 4, is an image editing program for Mac and Windows that enables photographers of all skill levels to optimize their images with just a few clicks - and with impressive results“, It says in the official explanation. "This is made possible by the technology of artificial intelligence. Editing, selecting and masking work fully automatically. And suddenly these tasks, which previously could only be done manually, are done within seconds."
Luminar 4 will come with the AI Sky Replacement Tool out that a further development of the AI Sky Enhancer represents. The quick and easy processing of the sky, taking into account the adaptation of the foreground, shows the potential of AI-supported image processing. The developers are visibly proud that this is recognized by the trade press:
"We are proud that EISA selected Luminar as the best photo editing software“Said Alex Tsepko, CEO of Skylum. "For the past few years we have Luminar developed into software that perfectly supports photographers in improving their images and getting the best out of them - through innovative technologies that are not available anywhere else. And with the imminent release of Luminar 4, we can hardly wait for the exciting technologies we have newly developed to be used."
