Luminar Neo Price.

The price of Neo hasn’t been announced as of yet but I would suspect it will be very close to €89.-  for a single seat, now it could well be €79.- for a single seat which would be great when you consider my discount code for skylum products HAYES10 will give you €10.- off the price. Skylum were kind enough to give me the discount code for my clients and visitors to my websites so thank you Skylum. Luminar Neo Promotional code or promo code HAYES10 please note my discount code will not work on the pre-launch prices. 

I have a demo video below of the Neo Beta copy in action below if you would like to watch it….

Is Luminar Neo replacing Luminar AI

The simple answer is no it’s not, these are two different bits of software, Neo is for Image editing and AI is for photography editing. That in a nutshell is the difference. My video below explains it better so please do have a look and if you have any questions then please do feel free to ask them.

Precise control with flexible editing.

We designed Luminar Neo with input from working photographers, artists, and colorists.
With this guidance, we built Neo to help artists break new creative ground with an image editor that allows precise control over every aspect of the final image while providing artists a flexible toolset that can be tailored to their unique creative workflow. These capabilities include…
AI-Driven Compositing 
● Smart, AI-based masking easily isolates elements in individual images.
● Add numerous images as layers to create entirely new art.
● Apply any tool and any mask … to any layer, in any order, multiple times.
● Use creative blending modes, guided by AI, to achieve clean, precise, composite images.
● Improved Ease of Use 
● Users can save their photos as well as presets for easy reuse.
● All editing steps remain editable for complete control over the final image.
● With a minimalist user interface, the whole process is enjoyable and easy.
● High performance
An all-new editing engine drives Neo, making it possible to apply multiple tools to an image without significant performance loss.  Neo allows for complex layering of several raw images. Our new engine enables Skylum to further optimize and refine the entire image-processing pipeline.
