Portrait Editing with Luminar 4 – Using Artificial Intelligence

In this video by Jacques Gaines, he looks at Portrait editing in Luminar 4 using the artificial intelligence features.

Luminar 4 is a stand-alone software or works as a plugin in Adobe Photoshop (which is great if you like working in Photoshop and don’t want to completely swap to new software).

This video uses the plugin version with Photoshop.

Jacques uses a retouched, flattened image in Photoshop and then opens the Luminar 4 plugin and does further editing work on his portrait.

He discusses the different portrait enhancement options that Luminar 4 offers.

Within Luminar, there is a section called “Portrait.”

This is the section that consists of:

  • AI Skin Enhancer
  • Portrait Enhancer
  • High Key
  • Orton Effect

AI Skin Enhancer

Smoothes out the skin on a portrait and does it realistically. You can decide how much you want to apply it from 0-100%.
If you don’t want it to apply to certain sections, you can also mask it out using a brush tool.

Portrait Enhancer

The Portrait Enhance panel consists of:

  • Face Light
  • Red Eye Removal
  • Eye Whitening
  • Eye Enhancer
  • Dark Circles Remover
  • Slim Face
  • Enlarge Eyes
  • Eyebrow Improve
  • Lips Saturation
  • Lips Redness
  • Lips Darkening
  • Teeth Whitening

Jared shows the effects these settings have on a portrait.

When you apply the changes in Luminar, it makes the image as a new Photoshop layer. You can then use a mask to paint out any areas in the image that you don’t want the effects applied to.
