PHOTOLEMUR


We haven’t seen many big advancements in photo editing software in recent years, but AI based software like PHOTOLEMUR will likely be the future of photo editing for many. Especially high volume shooters that don’t want to wasting time editing images, but like the flexibility of RAW files.

The creators of PhotoLemur contacted us a few days ago to let us know about their software and to share it with our readers. I am going to put together a test post in a few days showing my edit vs photo lemur’s edit, but since they have a monthly fee model, that is ramping up in price, now might be a good time to sign up. The software is a little buggy for me at this time, but I’m testing the limits of what it can do.

PHOTOLEMUR — MAKING BEAUTIFUL PHOTO ENHANCEMENT AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE WITH THE HELP OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
From now on, making perfect photos requires a simple drag, drop & export

London, UK, April 4, 2017 — Photolemur team announces pre-order of Photolemur for Mac and PC. Photolemur is an automatic photo enhancement tool that runs on artificial intelligence. It analyzes the photo and applies appropriate improvements using 12 technologies. While it has an easy one-button interface for the user, it provides a result that can be expected from a professional photographer working on the photo in a manual photo editor. Almost one million photos have been analyzed to reach this quality of enhancement.

Photolemur vs photo editors
Unlike photo editors, Photolemur does everything automatically. It eliminates the need for manual adjustments and hours of complex learning. Photolemur doesn’t change the photo but enhances the parts of the photo that require enhancements. As the result, it bridges the gap between what our eyes see and what our cameras capture.

For a user, it’s as simple as drag and drop. Photolemur automatically processes a single image or multiple photos and lets users save or share the improved photo.

How does it work?
Photolemur uses artificial intelligence to analyze the image and apply targeted enhancements. Photolemur recognizes objects, faces, trees, sky, foliage and more; understands the type of photo (landscape, portrait, macro, etc) and applies the appropriate fix based on its knowledge of processing hundreds of thousands of photos in the past.

Unlike the Auto Enhance button in some editors, Photolemur doesn’t apply the same preset or a set of “hard-coded” settings onto the image. Photolemur is powered by a number of special technologies, each of which analyzes a certain part of the photo.

12 Photolemur technologies

  1. Color recovery – Restores brilliance of dazzling blues, yellows, and reds — as well as shades in between — by instantly adjusting colors so they pop beautifully.
  2. Sky enhancement – Separates clouds from the sky, restores their volume, accentuates detail.
  3. Exposure compensation – Detects and compensates for inaccurate exposure settings by slightly lightening or darkening the images.
  4. Natural light correction – Considers the time of the day in a photo and adjusts tones, exposure, and contrast to bring out the natural colors and lighting of mornings, evenings, dawn or dusk.
  5. Foliage enhancement – Compensates for the lost colors in nature shots. Picks out individual trees, leaves and any other kind of plant or shrub and adjusts colors, sharpness and other features.
  6. Noise reduction – Finds and removes unwanted digital noise that results from shooting at slow shutter speeds in low-light situations.
  7. Smart dehaze – Detects and removes unnatural haze, fog, mist, dust, smog, and other distracting elements.
  8. Tint perfection – Finds the best tint solution — warmer or cooler — depending on several variables.
  9. Face retouching – Detects faces, then works to clean up any imperfections or blemishes.
  10. JPG fix – Finds and corrects mistakes in JPEG images by suppressing compression artifacts.
  11. RAW processing – Analyzes the data in RAW files and provides the best results.
  12. Horizon straightening – Adjusts slightly off-kilter horizons or backgrounds.

  • I just tried it last night on 200 photos. It doesn’t quite live up to the hype, but it is worth the price and all of the edits it made were worthwhile. I wouldn’t reject any of its edited versions.

    It can’t replace a human with good Photoshop skills, but you can’t beat being able to bulk edit a huge batch of photos on auto-pilot.
