NEWS: Skylum Launches AirMagic, A Photo Editor for Drone Images
This is a really good idea, and as far as I know it’s an original one. The folks at Skylum, who have given us the Luminar and Aurora image editors, are today offering AirMagic, a Mac or PC app designed to apply AI (artificial intelligence) to any drone or aerial-based image you drop into the app, either a single image or a bunch of images. The app will be released March 21, but I got an early review copy and I’ll share my impressions below.
AirMagic works by first detecting the drone camera used to produce an image and analysing its lens and colour profile. From there, it makes automatic lens corrections and other camera-specific optimisations. AirMagic uses smart algorithms and AI to evaluate each photograph, applying modifications such as colour reveal, haze removal, sky enhancement, and other finely tuned adjustments to make each photo look just as it was intended.
