Skylum has released Luminar 4, a major upgrade to its AI-powered photo editing app that brings an updated user interface and four new tools. The AI Sky Replacement tool automatically detects both the sky and objects within a scene and removes halos, artifacts, and edges of transitions. The AI Structure tool identifies objects like people and their faces, skin, sky, and buildings, and adjusts fine details in just those objects. Luminar 4 also features a Skin Enhancer tool to remove various skin imperfections automatically and a Portrait Enhancer to make facial features more expressive. Luminar 4 also works as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, and Photoshop Elements, as well as Photos and Aperture. The app costs $89, and previous license holders can upgrade for $74. You can activate Luminar 4 on two devices in a household, and a free trial is available to download ($89 new, $74 upgrade, 18.8 MB, release notes, macOS 10.12+)
