AI software is no different than a RAW converter - it gives you a starting point for your editing. Its utility is decided by how much more time you need to spend before getting a result you or your client likes. Many are happy just using Canon's JPEG-engine. Its no different (except in what it delivers).With toold like Lightroom or photoshop, the range of possibilities is almost limitless, with the new AI software, it sounds like there is much less control but it can work as a add-in, so you can still tweak images more after you edit them with Luminar AI. I like to edit individual images, but when I have 2000 originals along with carpal tunnel, I want to reduce editing to the minimum actually required. It will be interesting to try, but I don't hold much hope. If it produces 2000 sidecars, I'm going to be very frustrated.
