Skylum Luminar 4

The upcoming Skylum Luminar 4 seems to become a pretty powerful photo editing software.

After unveiling a preview of the AI Sky Replacement feature, Skylum teases another Luminar 4 feature powered by artificial intelligence algorithms, AI Structure. The 1 minute video below introduces the feature.

You can pre-order Skylum Luminar 4 at a special early bird price.

The actual version, Luminar 3, can be purchased with an exclusive $10 discount by using code WATCH at checkout.
