AI Software

Post by minniev » Fri Mar 15, 2019 8:06 pm

Several months ago I got a free copy of Photolemur bundled with something. Photolemur is AI software that analyzes photos and decides how they should be edited. You can tinker further with some controls of your own if you want. I hadn't done anything with it so gave it a run at this shot of a pelican that dropped down in front of me one morning. Have you ever used AI software to "decide" how your photos should look?

Any comments about the photo, or edits, or comments about AI software are all welcome.

it looks like it did a pretty good job. Do you get the feeling that it handles each image uniquely? Or do you feel that it does a similar thing for each (better contrast, sharpening, auto-color, etc)

It appears to handle each image based on exposure, color, contrast, noise and sharpening. It does best with photos that are dull like this slightly underexposed raw image, than photos that are way off base or involve some tricky lighting. I haven't fooled with it enough to be sure though.

Seems like it would be a real asset for people who hate processing. That would not be me! I love the fiddling.

While I'm not sure I would want to hand over complete editing to an AI I can only imagine that using AI to 'normalize' an image is a great place to start. Although Lightroom and Photoshop can each do this to a pretty good degree.

I took a look at the examples provided on the Photolemur site and the adjustments are pretty standard; color enhancement (saturation, vibrance), local contrast, exposure correction. I did notice that on the faces it slightly enlarged the eyes along with sharpening and color enhancing them. Not sure if purists would approve of that. Not to burst any bubbles but i don't see anything special about Photolemur that can't be done with other editing software. I suppose the benefit is the one click aspect. (?)

I’m with you Duck. I would rather develop my own from the raw file and tinker. It’s fun to me.

But I could see how it could benefit those folks who absolutely despise post processing. And there are a lot of folks who feel that way.
