Face AI works wonders to recover exposure in portraits.

Take advantage of LuminarAI tools

Tools like EnhanceAI, StructureAI and FaceAI are huge time-savers. They automatically recognize the scene and make them pop. I really like that I get to decide which amount is appropriate for the vibe I’m going for. It’s the best of both worlds: AI makes our lives easier and WE get the last word.

Landscape is one of my favorite tool to add a warm vibe (and not only in landscapes!)

Heat it up

Summer rhymes with heat and thankfully, LuminarAI has more than one trick up its sleeve to help us achieve just that. Besides the traditional Temperature slider (found under the Light panel), other tools such as Toning and Golden Hour (found under the Landscape panel) are two of my favorite ways to add natural-looking and warm vibe.

Fun fact: Sunrays is great for pictures with … and without sun!

Final touches to the ultimate summer-centric style

Once the image has a great base and has a great vibe, tools Sunrays, LUTs (found under the Mood panel) and Color Harmony are the cherries on top. To create an interesting style I’ve decided to add sunrays to this picture, even if the sun was out of the frame!
