Luminar from Skylum is an advanced photo editing program, or more precisely, an image editing program that has emerged several times in new and radically different directions in recent years. Once introduced as a potential replacement for Lightroom, it was recently (February 2022) re-released as Luminar Neo for easier image processing/editing. The program relies on artificial intelligence (AI) for many of its functions, most of which have been added and will continue to be added. In March 2024, “Lminar for iPad” was released, a simple version for Apple tablets with a user interface optimized for touch operation (Fotointern reported).
