Luminar AI Discussionon: December 24, 2020 at 12:42 am
I am a Luminar AI Insider. I do NOT work for Skylum. I’m just a photograher looking for the best results I can get. For those who want to dive deeper into the product you can watch the 2Hr video with photographers and Skylum experts you can watch the YouTube video of the session.
If you prefer Vimeo for better video quality…
I have and use Adobe LrC and PS. I also use DXO Nik collection. I shoot Fuji X-Trans so I also use Iridient X-Transformer because Adobe isn’t as good for bringing out details in my RAF files.
I use all those pieces of software and maybe a couple more to get to the results I want and doing it in a reasonable amount of time. Yes, I can probably use PS alone because we all know that with enough layers and time we can likely do whatever I want while building humongous files.
Luminar AI is easy to use… no Phd required and I can get to the result I want much, much faster. I must end by saying YOU are in control of the results. Just about everything in Luminar AI can be adjusted or not used. Its up to you.Re: Luminar AI Demo by Kevin RaberReply #1 on: December 21, 2020 at 10:20 pm
I’ve been using Skylum products since their CK line of stuff. When Skylum Luminar 4 was released I started using that and found it quite a boon. Yes, I have LrC and PS and have had for a long time and my processing always starts in LrC. I also use DXO Nik Collection. I use Iridient X-Transformer for max detail for RAF files from my Fuji X-series cameras. Adobe lags behind in that regard.
I’ve enjoyed using Luminar 4 and for me Luminar AI is a significant advancement in their product line. IMHO the AI aspects get me to where I want to go much quicker than PS. I always feel in control though and its amazing what can be achieved in a modest amount of time. I always feel like the results are mine not the AI’s.
The announced Luminar AI features to be added in 2021 will be another boost to the product and a boon for photographers.
I do NOT believe that Skylum has targeted their product as a nose to nose competitor to PS or LrC. As Kevin has pointed out it lacks the library (data base) and the ability to flag, color code or star photos. We all know that PS can do anything with enough time and layers 🙂 but life is short..Re: Autumn ViewsReply #2 on: November 3, 2020 at 9:11 pm
