As a lens-slinging, RAW-shooting photography aficionado, I’ve always been skeptical about the JPEG format. Can any true professional embrace it, and if so, why? Ah, but let us not stray from our narrative’s true purpose – the artful finesse of editing RAW images to unveil their hidden splendor.

Enter Luminar Neo, AI powered photo editing app from Skylum. I thought I had everything I needed, but boy, was I mistaken!

First Impressions: Speed and Versatility

Upon installing Luminar Neo, I was immediately struck by its lightning-fast performance. Designed to function as both a standalone app and a plugin for Photoshop and Lightroom (which I haven’t dabbled in yet), this nifty piece of software seamlessly integrated with my existing workflow.

Taking the Plunge: Delving into Luminar Neo’s Features

My trusty new sidekick bore a striking resemblance to the Luminar I knew and loved, but with a fresh twist. I dove right in, uploading a folder of photos and watching them materialize in an instant.

I decided to edit photos made with my trusty Trioplan lens – Meyer Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100 f2.8 II for Nikon Z7, a marvel for capturing stunning soap bubble bokeh – oh, but I digress. So, I selected a recent snapshot set and embarked on my Luminar Neo escapade.

Exploring the Editing Wonderland in Luminar Neo

Overwhelmed by the smorgasbord of editing options, I sampled a few tantalizing tools like Enhance AI, Structure AI, Dramatic, and Mystical. But what really piqued my interest were the game-changing Noiseless AI and Supersharp AI features nestled within the Extras.

I exercised some patience with the AI-powered Noiseless extension, and despite multitasking with other apps and YouTube videos, it didn’t take long to execute.
