Macphun has introduced Neptune, a free update to the company’s award-winning image editor Luminar. Among its cool new features is Accent AI, a photo filter based on Artificial Intelligence technology that allows photographers to make image enhancements with a single slider rather than through multiple adjustments. Designed by Macphun developers, the filter analyzes elements of a photo, then syncs that information with the other Luminar filters as it adapts to your photo style, to help photographers create their best version of an image.
The California-based company is all about making photo editing a simpler and more enjoyable process, and in addition to Accent AI, photographers should see increased speed and performance. There are many more features, but a few additional ones include:
- The Quick & Awesome workspace, where in addition to Accent AI, the Saturation & Vibrance and Clarity filters are found
- Creative Kit and Aurora HDR 2017 plug-in integration, which works seamlessly with Macphun’s other photo-editing tools
- The Vignette filter adds Vignette Styles, Place Center and Pre-Crop and Post-Crop modes
Currently, Luminar Neptune is Mac only, but Macphun will launch a public beta for PC in July, for Luminar and Aurora HDR. Get more info here.
If you already own Luminar via direct purchase from Macphun, just launch the app and get prompted to update for free, or check for updates from the Luminar menu. Otherwise, Luminar is available for $69, or download a free trial here, where you also can get more information on Neptune.
