Luminar is a modern image editor for both Mac and PC platforms. It provides photographers with the tools they need to creatively edit their images quickly and easily.
- [Instructor] We definitely need tone…in our filters toolbox.…Yes, we can make tonal adjustments…when we do the raw develop,…but what happens is as you start to work…with some of these other filters,…then those effects could change a little bit,…and you might want to go back…and open up shadows a bit more,…recover a few highlights,…things like that.…So you need another tool for that,…and tone is perfect for it…because it has an exposure slider…which deals with this part of the histogram,…the really bright areas.…
It has a contrast slider which,…when you move it,…it pushes out both ends of the histogram…at the same time.…That's how contrast is increased.…It has a smart tone slider,…which is very nice.…This is based on an algorithm that analyzes your image…and creates a tonal adjustment based on its analysis.…You have highlights and shadows.…So highlights helps you recover detail in the bright areas,…shadows helps you recover detail in the darker areas.…
And then whites and blacks,…which just help you set sort of the baseline look…
