We’re really excited to see what Luminar AI can do for creatives everywhere.”
Depending On The Image, Luminar AI Can Suggest a Template That Will Work Best
For example, if you have a person in your photo, it will suggest Templates that are most suitable for portraits or group photos. If you have a photo of your pet, it will suggest a Template best suited for animals or wildlife. And for landscapes, you will get a great Template recommendation that helps reveal all the details of the scene.
Luminar AI is designed for visual communicators, everyday people, and professional photographers alike. It’s made for those who rely on pictures to communicate their important messages and grow their opportunities or reputation: Bloggers, entrepreneurs, educators, marketers, small and medium-sized businesses, and many others.
