Tutorial Thursday April 29

Today I did a “Coffee Chat” with the Luminar Insiders group. If you have Luminar AI you are welcome to join the group!

I had a few extra projects ready to go – here’s one I showed the finished image of, but not all of the steps.

I began with this image of an old truck:

I began with a Template (one from a purchased group) > Monochrome Vision Group > Sepia Basic

I then went to the Edit tab and made the following adjustments:

  1. Light > Exposure = .66
  2. Details > Small = 16

I then went to the Local Masking Tab > +Add Texture

I brought in my first texture. Place Texture (resize to the image by using the arrows and move tool). Blending mode = Multiply; Opacity 93%; Brightness = -20; Contrast = 15

+Add Texture – 2nd texture settings: Blending Mode = Soft Light; Opacity 32%; Saturation = -40

And here is the finished image:

Tutorial Thursday April 22

WEBINAR Q&A

For Tutorial Thursday I will answer some questions from Tuesday’s Webinar.

Q: I appears when I added Luminar AI to my already owned Luminar 4 I lost the masking capability when adding a sky. And there are more masking options in Luminar 4 as opposed to Luminar AI. Am I missing something?

A: You did not lose the masking capability in Luminar AI. The difference with masking (with any tool) in Luminar AI is that you have to have made a change to that tool to SEE the masking option (see photos below). Once you actually select a new sky, the masking tool appears. Three masking options – Brush, Radial, and Gradient – are in both programs. Luminosity masking is in Luminar 4 but not Luminar AI, so that is the only option that is different.

Q: I purchased templates to add to my Luminar AI but it didn’t add. How do I do that?

A: To add templates from the Luminar Marketplace to your Luminar program, go to the Templates tab. Over in the right hand panel you will see this area – Favorites, My Templates, Purchased, Legacy Templates.

Next to Purchased there is +Add – click this button and go to the folder you saved your purchased templates in. Double click the file and it will add to the Purchased section. Open this section to see your purchased templates.

Q: Is there a Luminar User Manual?

A: Yep! It’s over 250 pages!!! You can find the manual here: https://manual.skylum.com/?uid=B963C41C-AC4F-5DAA-B05A-68D60791BA81. Once on that page you can read the section you need, or at the bottom, you can download the PDF file. This is updated with every new release/update of the program.

Q: If you add a mask to one tool, is there a way to copy the same mask to another tool?

A: YES! Once you have a mask applied, click the “3 dots” to the right of the Paint Mask box and select Copy. Then go to your new tool, open the mask function, click the 3 dots and Paste.

Q: If you had to choose between Luminar and Topaz, which one would you choose?

A: That’s a very hard question as I use both regularly! It depends on what I’m looking to do with my image. For quickly perfecting an image or replacing a sky, I go to Luminar. If I’m looking for creative effects, I’ll go to Topaz Studio 2 (I love Impression and textures and often start with a “Look” in Studio 2).

Sunday Sampler April 18

Today’s Sunday Sampler was an old image I found – and I’m not sure what it started as! I named it Confetti Green…so I took it into Studio 2 and did some Impression on it first. I then took THAT image into Smart Photo Editor and created 3 more versions. Enjoy!

Tutorial Thursday April 15

I saw this tutorial this morning on Abduzeedo.com called “Deliciously Fat Gradients in Photoshop”. I was intrigued and kept reading. This looks like a fun tutorial to create a unique gradient. I could see this being use to accent a sunrise in one of my images (try making this with different colors too). Check it out HERE! There are both written directions and a video.
