Atmospheric haze

 

A month after its initial release, Luminar 4 receives an update with new and improved tools, performance upgrades and more


The Luminar 4.1 update includes updates to AI Sky Replacement, the Erase tool, Portrait Enhancer and more.
 

New Atmospheric Haze For AI Sky Replacement 

AI Sky Replacement gets a feature update in Luminar 4.1, letting photographers naturally add atmospheric haze that is usually seen during the day, to their images. 

Atmospheric Haze is the perfect addition when dealing with harsh daylight photos with clear blue skies. If you have an oversaturated sky or if the brightness of your sky doesn’t match the foreground, it will add haze to make for a more accurate image. 

 

Erase Tool Technology 

The Erase tool has been upgraded, using an all-new technology for precise object removal. Removing unwanted pixels is easier than ever, even with complicated backgrounds or complex gradients. Edges on the Erase tool are much softer, and the new algorithm means smarter selections for area replacement.

 

Portrait Enhancer Improvements

Introduced with Luminar 4, Portrait Enhancer has also received improvements. The tool can now be used on even more images, including those with smaller faces like groups or environmental portraits.

Adjustments Amount Slider

If you ever need to tone down an adjustment slightly, the new Adjustments Amount slider has you covered. It’s the perfect option to help you blend your tools with the original image. Just use the Layers tool to dial back the Adjustments Amount slider. You’ll find this new control for all image and adjustment layers. Traditional opacity controls remain available.

The Adjustments Amount slider works with all tools except for transform options like Lens Correction, Slim Face and Enlarge Eyes.

 

Additional Improvements

Luminar 4.1 brings full support for Adobe Photoshop 2020, allowing you to use Luminar 4.1 as a plugin or as a Smart Filter with Smart Objects. Thanks to Luminar users, several performance improvements have been made, including memory management, user experience, and stability. 

 

How To Update

Luminar 4.1 is a free update to current Luminar 4 users. On a Mac, click in the Top Menu Bar and choose Luminar 4 > Check for updates. On Windows, in the Top Menu Bar choose Help > Check for updates. If you are running Luminar as a plugin with Photoshop, Lightroom Classic or Photoshop Elements, it’s also recommended you rerun the plugin installer. An expanded user manual has also been added.
