Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a significant player in photo editing. Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy finished product or a starting point for further stylization, Artificial Intelligence built into photo software can help.
Lightroom Classic CC’s Auto Tone with Adobe Sensei
Lightroom Classic‘s Auto Tone button uses Adobe Sensei technology to create better automatic adjustments. Adobe’s artificial intelligence analyzes your photo and compares it to thousands of professionally edited photos to create what it believes will be a pleasing image.
Luminar 2018 Accent-AI Filter
The Accent-AI filter in Luminar 2018 automatically analyzes your image and instantly corrects it using over a dozen controls at once, yielding natural results with one slider. Accent-AI can substitute for many traditional controls like shadows, highlights, contrast, tone, saturation, exposure, details and others.
Artificial Intelligence in Lightroom Classic vs Luminar 2018
The most notable difference is that Luminar‘s Accent-AI filter brought out much more detail in the shadows. There are also slight differences in the colors and highlight areas.
Whichever method you choose, the end goal is a better image with less work. In this instance Luminar 2018 brings me closer to that goal than Lightroom Classic, but both provide a good starting point for stylistic edits.
