Skylum Luminar 4 is a powerful AI photo editor, which offers endless creative possibilities. Capable of spectacular effects for all kinds of photography, Luminar 4’s toolset places a particular focus on portraits. And the recent Luminar 4.2 update adds even more impressive features, including a new Shine Removal tool.
Luminar’s dedicated Portrait workspace houses all of its powerful AI enhancement tools, with two key panels: AI Skin Enhancer and AI Portrait Enhancer. Both use Skylum’s AI Neural Network technology to recognise and select human faces and individual facial features, allowing for highly targeted adjustments.
Luminar 4’s enhancement tools have been developed to work alongside your portraits, keeping photography true to the subject and always maintaining a level of authenticity. Effective but not overpowering, here are five ways Luminar 4 AI enhancement features can help take your portrait photography to new heights…
01. AI Skin Enhancer
A brilliant first step to enhance your portrait if needed. This tool automatically identifies and selects your subject’s face, which you can then apply various effects to. These include skin smoothing and shine removal.
02. AI Skin Defects Removal
If the project you’re working on requires clear, flawless skin, then Luminar 4 has the solution. Its AI Skin Defect Removal tool can automatically detect small skin blemishes and remove them seamlessly.
03. Eye whitening and Eye enhancer
Two very simple but highly effective tools. The eye whitener and enhancer sliders need little adjusting to achieve great, very natural-looking improvements.
04. Face Light
Don’t have a reflector? No problem. This simple Face Light slider brightens faces naturally and subtly, without affecting the rest of the image.
05. Luminar Looks
Want to give your image a specific, stylised look? Luminar has a whole library of Looks that can be applied directly to portraits. Plus you can keep them on a totally separate layer so as to not affect any existing enhancements.
