Deconstructing Luminar's New Accent AI Filter

This is a seriously powerful filter, and it's just a single slider!

I am all about ease of use and saving time when editing. I take a lot of photos, and I always do some sort of editing to them, so I want to move through them without spending too much time on any single photo. That is one of the reasons why I have created so many presets. They are time-savers (plus, it's fun to experiment with different looks).

So when I first got to experiment with the new Accent AI filter, I was pretty excited, and then after experimenting with it I was BLOWN AWAY. It's pretty incredible.

It does what it would normally take several other filters to accomplish, all in a single slider. But I got curious about which filters it could theoretically replace, so I took a photo and did a comparison. I edited it with just the Accent AI filter, and then I did it again with other filters except for Accent AI. It was a fun exercise, and proved just how powerful Accent AI really is.

Here's the video. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions!

Being a curious sort, I wanted to see if I could figure out which other filters sort of make up Accent AI, so I take a single photo and edit it once with Accent AI, and then separately with other filters, not including Accent AI. How did it go?
