MacVoices #20110: Jeff Carlson On Luminar 4 From a Photographer’s Perspective (Part 1)

Jeff Carlson is back to discuss photo editing from a different perspective. In his The Photographer’s Guide to Luminar 4, we get a look at a new way to enhance our photos. While Luminar has all the usual capabilities, Jeff explains how it uses slider controls to simplify what, in other programs, might take multiple difficult and time-consuming steps. In Luminar 4, AI isn’t just a buzzword, but is integrated to improve your experience and results. In Part 1, Jeff uses the portrait and sky improvements as examples of what you can accomplish.
