Using Luminar 4 to Edit Landscape Photos

Luminar 4 brings with it lots of interesting capabilities, including some fantastic AI tools. This great video examines what you can accomplish with it when working on landscape images.

Coming to you from Landscape Photography IQ, this great video will show you how you can use Luminar 4 to edit landscape photos. I have been using Luminar 4 for about half a year now, and I really enjoy it. I generally use Lightroom for my cataloging and jump into Photoshop for more localized edits, but I find myself using Luminar as a plug-in for more creative work. I have found it to be a ton of fun to play with. In particular, the AI capabilities are pretty impressive and can enable a lot of fun creative directions without the normal expense of significant time and effort that would be required when trying them manually. This is great because it enables you to explore different edits quite quickly. Furthermore, now is a great time go back through your catalog and edit photos you previously passed over or even re-edit finished images you were not satisfied with. Check out the video above for more on the program.

Lightroom is great enough in terms of interface

Lightroom was pretty close to Aperture when it came out. Why didn't Adobe start from scratch and think fo something better? I'm guessing the interface just makes sense regardless of the program. I use On1, Exposure, Affinity, Lightroom and used to use Aperture, and they're. all pretty much the same for basic edits. The only one that seems substantially different is Capture One - and it's so different that I haven't been willing to try it, even though it's probably the best for tethering my camera.
