Improve your photos in a single click: why Luminar Neo is our new favourite tool

Luminar Neo offers a killer combination of easy-to-use software with sophisticated, AI-powered photo editing features, all available at the click of a button.

When it comes to editing photos, time is a precious commodity. Whether you're a professional photographer, a graphic designer dealing with many images, or an enthusiastic amateur, you don't want to spend all your hours tweaking your images. Because ultimately, that's time you could be spending on a shoot.

But at the same time, even the most expertly captured photos often need a bit of love to raise them from good to great.

You might have been shooting in dull or dismal conditions. Random passers-by might have veered into your field of view, ruining an otherwise perfect image. An otherwise beautiful scene could have been marred by power lines trailing across the landscape. All these, plus a million other possibilities, mean that, in truth, few photographers can ever realise the perfect image without a little tweaking in photo editing software.

The key, though, is the word 'little'. We're all leading such busy lives that we no longer have the time to spend hours fiddling with software. But the good news is that you no longer have to, thanks to AI technology!

There are many new tools popping up that allow you to make everything from subtle to dramatic tweaks to your photos in just a couple of clicks. And for our money, one of the best is Luminar Neo.

Why Luminar Neo?

So why are we recommending this particular tool? Well, as we've raised the issue of time-saving, we'll keep things brief and to the point.

Firstly, Luminar Neo has a super-simple interface, which means that even if you've never used photo editing software, you'll be able to pick it up in no time at all. (Conversely, if you're already a Photoshop whizz, you can use it as a Photoshop plugin and speed up your workflow considerably).

Secondly, within that super-simple interface lie some incredibly powerful tools. Luminar Neo's core strength is its harnessing artificial intelligence (AI) to automate repetitive tasks and simplify complex editing processes. This intelligent approach eliminates the need for manual adjustments and fine-tuning, allowing you to focus on the creative aspects of your editing.

Consequently, this revolutionary photo editing software will streamline your workflow, save you valuable time and enhance your creative freedom. Read on as we show you what that looks like in practice by exploring just a few of Luminar Neo's powerful tools.

2. Change the sky
