LUMINAR NEO UPDATE 1.0.6

Luminar Neo update 1.0.6 was released today! NOW INCLUDED…the long-anticipated Mask AI feature!

Mask AI
The major feature of this update is the long-anticipated Mask AI technology. The powerful neural network behind Mask AI detects up to 9 separate elements in a photo: people, skies, architecture, transportation, water, flora, mountains, natural ground, and artificial ground.

What’s more impressive, is that you can automatically mask the desired area with just one click of a button. The AI will find the desired area and mask it up for you, without needing to spend time fussing over the details with a masking brush.

After applying a tool to the masked area, you can easily copy and paste the adjustments to other images, and the mask will apply adjustments only to the same masked area of the other image – be it a sky, a building, a person, and so on.

On top of that, you can enjoy the manual Gradient and Radial masks. Plus, the new interface makes it easier and more enjoyable to work with masking.

Histogram
The histogram is a tool that can be a great help while correcting colors or adjusting exposure, and we’re happy to announce that the Histogram is now available for all your images. A histogram is a graphical representation of the tonal values of your image. In other words, it shows the number of tones of a particular brightness found in your photograph, ranging from black (0% brightness) to white (100% brightness). It’s a great tool that will help you produce well-balanced images.

Now you can press the J hotkey to toggle clipping indicators on and off and see clipped pixels.

Of course, if you already own Neo, this is a FREE update!
