The world of photography is constantly evolving, and a new element is reshaping the creative landscape: artificial intelligence. This technological innovation, often met with curiosity and a touch of concern, proves to be more than a passing trend; it is changing the game and redefining the way we capture, edit, and experience imagery. With the influence of AI continuing to grow, its potential in the field of photography is becoming increasingly evident.

In demonstration of this philosophy, Skylum unveils an impressive range of new AI-assisted tools designed to simplify photographers’ challenges in scene manipulation, object removal, and expanding the photographic canvas. Exploring these new photo editing techniques promises to be exciting for Luminar Neo users.

GenErase, the next-generation erasure

GenErase is a next-generation erasing tool that allows photographers to remove elements from their images while considering the content using artificial intelligence. This kind of tool has become almost a standard among software editors in the photography field, ensuring a significant time-saving for creators.

This new feature presented by Skylum preserves the integrity of your photos by intelligently filling gaps with textures and other elements matching the surrounding area. GenErase can remove objects such as litter, signage, vehicles, graffiti, etc., using either manually created masks or masks generated by AI, thus preserving the beauty of the composition.

SceneExpand & SceneSwap to compete with Adobe

SceneExpand is a new tool that allows users to push the boundaries of their photos and add a new dimension to their original compositions.

On the other hand, SceneSwap enables users to replace specific elements (such as the sky or foreground) with high-quality visuals generated by AI, seamlessly integrating with the rest of the photo. It’s now possible to transform a cloudy sky into a beautiful sunset with just a few clicks.

With these two new intelligent features, Skylum introduces indispensable assets for artists, directly competing with Adobe, which already offers such functionalities in its Photoshop Beta software.
