High-performance software for editing the pictures I take in my work

Photolemur is one of the easiest photo-editing software I've ever gotten on the market and is an excellent complement to other more advanced photo-editing software or one that relies on superior knowledge to use it. Not to recommend Photolemur would be to ignore all the positive features that this software can offer.

Pros

In addition to designing, I also work with photographs. As a sports journalist, it is very important for me not only to capture the precise moment of the sports event I am covering, but also to have the best quality in the photographs I take, this is where photolemur becomes essential. This software allows me to edit the photographs I take by providing excellent quality elements such as shadow removal, image lightening, automatic image correction, which is quite good indeed, the saturation of the images is simply great, the approaches are quite acceptable, the contrast of the image is intensified, offering quality results. Another of the positive features that photolemur offers me is its split screen, where I can observe step by step the process of editing the image and see the real result of its editing. And finally I would like to mention that the resulting format of the edition is RAW, that is to say, one of the most complete, even better than JPG, offering edited photographs of high quality and aesthetic excellence.

Cons

In this software I find two shortcomings or characteristics that limit photography editing quite a bit. On the one hand, even though I mentioned earlier that intuitive editing was acceptable, this element detracts from the creativity of photo editing, as you cannot add layers, colors, textures and other features to the photo as you can with other software. The second disadvantage I find in the software is that for the photographs that I process in RAW format, it takes a long time to process them completely and present their final results, delaying the processing of the final product that I must deliver to my clients.

Improved photo quality made easy

I'm forced to work with a lot of sub-par photos shot by staff in the field. These photos are featured on our website and in printed materials, so they need to be at a higher standard. Photo lemur makes it possible to use the images I receive in far more cases than I normally would and eliminates the need to engage a pro for simple things.

Pros

Photo lemur is an app that takes up very little space, uses little memory and quickly improves both the color and crispness of photos that come in from amateur sources.

Cons

It could do what it does to a higher degree, but otherwise, it's about perfect. In future updates, I'd like to see an ability to process larger images effectively, but not a major issue.

Reasons for Choosing LuminarAI

While I still think I may eventually move to inPixio, the cost for Photo lemur made early adoption a no-brainer.

An excellent software for retouching photographs

Pros

Photolemur has been my ideal complement for the retouching of photographs and images that I receive firsthand. This interesting software has options that allow you to retouch images without modifying, that is, to clean images that for one reason or another do not look very clear or deserve more detail. In a way, Phottolemur allows me to correct images without altering the essence of it, saving me a lot of time working, since I do not have to use photo editing software. On the other hand, this software has a high sense of success and intelligence when it comes to cleaning photographs and images, which is why it is very useful when working with strips of images, or, images that have slight flaws that can be corrected without the need to use the full potential of vector editing software

Cons

As I said before, this program is an image corrector that uses an intuitive interface, however, it is not advisable to use it for the entire editing process since the most advanced photo editing software fulfills the creative role of looking for the desired image . Another problem that I find is that, sometimes, when the photos come in RAW format, just loading them in Photolemur takes a long time, reducing the productivity that is sought.

It is a software that facilitates my exploration in the design and retouching of photos

A software with amateur operability but with professional results. I highly recommend it for those design enthusiasts who are starting to work in this beautiful world of design and photography

Pros

It is a program VERY EASY TO USE. As an enthusiast of graphic design and photography I have been learning to use different types of programs that improve the quality of photos, backgrounds, additions and editions, however, sometimes it costs me a bit to use all the tools of other software, however, photolemur has made my editing experience much easier since it has artificial intelligence, and recognizes the details of the photos by making corrections of light, improves the foliage, retouches the faces, removes the natural imperfections of the photos such as haze or smoke, recovers the color and other positive features that make it a head program when editing or retouching images.

Cons

From my perspective, this program does not have cons, since it serves as a complement to more complex design software such as adobe ilustrator, photoshop and corel draw. Using any of these programs with photolemur you get quality results.

Too easy to use, and I get great results in correcting photographs

Buy it without fear of being wrong, photolemur far surpasses similar software

Pros

An editorial line without a good design of photographs would be a total failure, we could not insert ourselves in the complicated world market, therefore, in our review of software for the edition of photographs, we could find photolemur, a software that has greatly facilitated our presentation of editorial products. Without having extensive knowledge in the field of image editing and photography, you can use photolemur obtaining excellent results thanks to its fascinating intuitiveness, which predicts the best corrections to the selected images, providing innovative and sometimes amazing aesthetic elements, since it achieves very professional results without the need for an image editor. Anyone in our organization can use it, obtaining quality results, not recommend it would ignore the benefits of this software, unique in the market.

Cons

After having used it many times, putting it to the test with the photographs that most deserved modifications due to excess light or shade, I realized that this software has no apparent defects. Although we are not professionals in the area of design and editing of photographs, we have been able to obtain in photolemur the possibility of satisfying these technical limitations and producing quality photographs. I will not detract from this software

A software that applies artificial intelligence in the design.

An ideal software for those who go into the field of design esta´n, very easy to use, simple tools to use that allow you to optimize the working time in an image. For the most skilled in design, it is a very useful and practical tool for photos that require retouching for brightness, opacity, contrast and other basic editions. I highly recommend this software

Pros

Among its positive aspects I can highlight that it is very easy to use, helping me to optimize my time in the design. It has a wide variety of tools that allow me to optimize my photos with a couple of clicks, without having to resort to more creative visual programs such as Illustrator and Photoshop. Ideal for working on retouching, brightness and contrast in descriptive photos.

Cons

As I mentioned in the pros, I only use it for "descriptive" cut-out images, making adjustments to brightness, contrast, or delineation, but I can't work creatively with this software as I only use it as a plug-in. When having JPG images, it has many problems for the demarcation of the shadows, since the jpg files do not have much information of the image, this added to the fact that the program works with "artificial intelligence", important details are lost that if they can be handled with programs of greater precision of design and digitalization tools.

Photolemur is fantastic! This improves your photographs in two steps.

The pictures for your post will improve them a lot; as if he were a professional of design and photography! ... and in a minute!

Pros

It is a very simple software, since you started; you only import your photographs and then he does all the work alone. It's amazing you only have to calibrate between Realistic and Vivid and you're ready! ... you can export the photo directly to social networks Facebook or Twitter, send it by mail or save it on your computer. Also, I really like the lemur icon.

Cons

The AI does it all, so it does not have many parameters of configuration sometimes they are necessary.

Speed and simplicity for complex solutions. Simply excellent.

Pros

Editing photographs is usually a headache in my work, often having to retouch an image in limited time can be a nightmare, tools such as Photo Lemur can give you time to work on other details since its automated editing helps to correct elements Simple that doing it manually can take a long time. I recommend it 100%

Cons

Although very simple they should start working on adding more options, it is also a great application.

Easy to use and with great features for short-time photo editing.

Pros

A very, very simple program, with a limited keypad, but with a fairly acceptable picture adjustment system. As a photography enthusiast I like to be able to take a picture and not spend a lot of time on `editing programs with an overwhelming amount of buttons that I will never learn to use. On the other hand, Photolemur offers me simplicity and speed in the correction of my photographs. Automatically corrects light, color, lines and the best thing is that you do it without having to indicate where you should do it.

Cons

The program rarely interprets wrongly what to do, but I speak of 1% of the corrections I have applied. For the rest it is an excellent programn

A fully automated photo app that uses artificial intelligence to deliver a photo enhancement output.

I was initially disappointed by how basic and simple the app was. But, PhotoLemur turned out to be the surprisingly agile solution for a specialized, automatic batch image procession. It is simple, fast and delivers passable results. It is not a replacement for Photoshop, though there is a plugin available. PhotoLemur uses an AI technology to analyze images based on the series of complex algorithms. It then calculates for things such as color recovery, sky enhancement, exposure compensation, smart dehaze, natural light correction, foliage enhancement, noise reduction, tint perfection, face retouching, the overall quality of JPEG images, horizon straightening and RAW improving. All this sound impressive and promising. In actual use, I find it performing decently in not too demanding situations such as improving social media pictures. Although not detailed in-depth professional editing solution, it is sufficient enough for some quick, and or batch image processing needs.

Pros

No complicated adjustments. It works on both PC and Mac. Plugins for Photoshop and Lightroom. Very simple drag or import operation. Imports images in BMP, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, PSD, TIFF and RAW. Exports images in JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and PDF. The unlimited trial, but with the watermark in the lower right corner. The output is acceptable for the quick, not-too-demanding results. The simple image enhancement amount slider. The comparison slider for before and after an image. Enhance sharpness on well-lighted images. Acceptable color restoration on the darker colors/areas of images. The image output size is smaller than an original. Exports and shares to Facebook, Twitter, and a hard drive. Good how-to and blog sections on the website. Supports many camera models. Relatively inexpensive and no subscription. Family license for five devices. 30 days money back guarantee. The Batch processing mode. Fixes images from cell phones and cameras. Support available in 16 languages. Regularly updated.

Cons

No online, phone or tablet app version. No Linux compatibility. Beyond a single slider no further, manual or detailed correction options. Visible raster artifacts on a white and off-white large contrast surface of the image. Visible green artifacts on the darker areas of the image in low light situations. No before and after feature in the batch mode. Not a replacement for Photoshop or similar software. There are free online and offline solutions that are more powerful. The initial setup took over 5 minutes.

A software that we discovered recently, but we do not stop praising it

Pros

And we do not stop praising this software in our Foundation because it has an intuitive editing system very great, which saves us a lot of the time in the edition of photos, retouching, elimination of shadows, adds light to the photos. Unlike a software for editing photographs and images by vectors, it can be used with just one click, and the results, unlike other similar programs, are of high quality. This software has allowed many photographic records of our activities to be uploaded to social networks very quickly improving considerably our productivity and efficiency with the use of networks and the exposure of projects to our bosses. I quite recommend this software.

Cons

This software only serves to retouch the photos, although a fairly complete result is obtained, when higher editions are required, for example, to attach several layers to a photograph, if a more complete software is necessary to do so.

Image enhancements in an almost one click solution

A great go-to application for quick and easy and often impressive results with processing photos.

Pros

This application makes enhancing many types of images extremely easy. The ability to batch edit and batch export these days is also good, as is the integration with 3rd party applications.

Cons

Sometimes the available controls means you cannot get a desirable output with it and you can be left wishing for more localised controls or a greater range of things to 'tweak' it.

Automatic Photo Enhancement

This seems to be useful software. I will be purchasing the full version to see what else the program can do.

Pros

The software does a good job of adding adjustments to your photos as necessary for a variety of different types of images which have a variety of different problems with them. The slider in the middle of the photo is helpful to see a side by side before and after.

Cons

It is difficult to tell from the free trial how much control the user has over the editing tools.

Photo enhancing has never been so fast and easy!

Photolemur brings professional enhancing capabilities of the non-knowledgeable, non-designer. It really brings out the BEST in the images i have thrown at it. I cannot ask for more value than the speed and convenience it brings to the table.

Pros

Photolemur is like a Photo enhancer on Autopilot. It is the epitomy of the simples of photo enhancing tools, with just 3 steps to a BETTER LOOKING photo! Choose a photo, and Photolemur does the rest, it is just that simple! It even shows you the before and after of the photo / image chosen. I have not uploaded a photo that the program has not enhanced.

Cons

I really love this app and it will probably be for the next coming years.

Photolemur makes your photos look like shots by a professional photographer!

Improve your photographs as if you were an expert photographer without knowledge of the subject. That's what Photolemur does, and it does it very well!

Pros

The best thing about Phtolemur is its ease of use, it is a powerful tool to improve images. You do not make any effort, it's great. As easy as grabbing your photo, you release it in the window, run a bar over the photo and you're done; the results are impressive! ... I really like the user interfaces and the icon.

Cons

the bad thing is that it only works on Mac and is an expensive application; If you are an expert photographer, it will not be your best option.

One-Step Processing

I'm very pleased with the single-step results I get using it with my aerial photos. I use it in combination with other tools and it gets the job done.

Pros

Very fast and simple to use for new users. Drag-and-drop functionality with a strength-of-effects effect slider makes it simple to start using. Great way to make aerial photos "pop".

Cons

Had trouble initially getting it to run on Windows 10, but got it going.

Reasons for Choosing LuminarAI

Very inexpensive and simple to use. I didn't want to have to take a class to process my photos.
