Using the AI Enhancement tools in Luminar 4

Skylum Luminar 4 can produce spectacular effects for all kinds of photography, but it has a set of tools dedicated to portrait photography and enhancing human faces. These tools have been improved in the Luminar 4.2 update, which adds a new Shine Removal tool and a more sophisticated Slim Face feature.

The tools live in Luminar’s dedicated Portrait workspace, where you’ll find two key panels: AI Skin Enhancer and AI Portrait Enhancer. Both use Skylum’s AI Neural Network technology to recognise and select human faces and their individual features, such as eyes, brows, lips and teeth. This means that the adjustments you make target these areas and leave the rest of the image untouched. If you prefer, you can use manual masking tools to select areas for enhancement yourself.
