Fall Colors Are Popping in Columbia County!

This article was updated on November 12th, 2020

I challenge myself outside of my comfort zone and will cull, organize and edit these photos from the Columbia County area, all of them from Luminar 4 without Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. I'm sure that will be interesting!

Skylum has incorporated the power of artificial intelligence into Luminar 4 with the new AI Structure Tool, making it content-conscious, and the new tool can automatically recognize people against other objects, allowing it to selectively enhance your photo without over-processing people.

Watch how it automatically recognizes people in a photo and doesn’t over-process them, making faces and skin look natural while the objects around them look deeper and richer.
