What is the Generase tool in Luminar Neo?


What is the Generase tool in Lmunar Neo? Well, it is the answer to many photographer’s prayers. Not only does it do a clone stamp style erase, but it also generates content to fill in the area that has just been replaced by the erase tool. Join me in this video as I put Luminar Neo GenErase to the test!


Here is the definition of GenErase on the Skylum Luminar site

A next-generation Erase tool that not only removes unwanted distractions from your images, but also intelligently replaces those areas using content-aware AI tools, offering a focused and distraction-free composition. This feature preserves the integrity of your photos by filling in the gaps with textures and other elements using AI to match the surrounding area. GenErase can seamlessly remove objects such as trash, street signs, utility poles, vehicles, graffiti, crowds, and more to preserve the beauty of the composition.

I took Generase to the test and was very impressed on my first try. Generase worked well with lens flare. By using just the basic functions, I was able to erase a man from a photo. It did this quite well. In fact, I was shocked when I saw it know the difference between a man and his reflection. Wow!

All you need to do now is to tell Luminar what to work with by letting it know the content you want to erase. After that, Luminar does a content-aware erase by removing what you do not want in your image and making content that fills the empty spaces.
