Photolemur 3.0 Review – The Fastest & Easiest Way To Make All Of Your Photos Great
What is Photolemur?
Photolemur is an easy-to-use application for editing your photos. It automatically analyzes and perfects your images and doesn’t require any manual input from you.
Photolemur doesn’t have any hard-coded filters. Instead, it applies specific targeted enhancements to every pixel and object in your photo. Photolemur is powered by an Artificial Intelligence algorithm that recognizes objects, faces, trees, sky, foliage, and more. It distinguishes between portraits, landscapes, and macro photographs and applies the appropriate enhancements for each type of image.
Photolemur corrects camera flaws and imperfections to make your photos even better. All you have to do is drag and drop your image to the app, and let Photolemur work its magic.
The full version of Photolemur supports:
● Batch processing
● Setting the intensity of Photolemur adjustments with the Boost slider
● Photolemur plugins for Photoshop and Lightroom
● Using Photolemur as a Photos extension
● Saving enhanced photos to your computer in a desired format and

Technologies inside Photolemur
While it’s simple on the outside, Photolemur is extremely complicated on the inside. Its engine uses 12 different technologies to make your images look great.
● Color Recovery
Automatic Color Recovery technology makes sure your photos retain the bright, vivid colors of real life. It instantly adjusts colors to pop beautifully on the screen.
● JPEG Fix
JPEG Fix finds and corrects mistakes in JPEG images by suppressing compression artifacts to quickly improve the quality of images.
● Foliage Enhancement
Foliage Enhancement automatically picks out individual trees, leaves, and any other kind of plant or shrub and adjusts colors, sharpness, and other settings to bring the stunning natural beauty back to your image.
● Auto Color Temperature
This technology automatically adjusts the colors of objects to match their colors in real life.
● Auto Lens Correction
Distortion usually appears in images taken with wide lenses, causing objects to look different in size and shape from how they look in real life. Photolemur’s Auto
Lens Correction automatically fixes distortion as well as chromatic aberration and vignetting to make your images looks natural.
● Smart Dehaze
Smart Dehaze automatically detects and removes unnatural haze, fog, mist, dust, smog, or distracting unpleasantries in order to enhance the colors and overall beauty of your photos.
● RAW Processing
With support for the RAW format and the rest of Photolemur’s technologies, you won’t need to worry about how to improve photo quality ever again.
● Sky Enhancement
Sky Enhancement brings head-turning, striking colors back to your skies, giving the whites of the clouds a lift and enhancing the blues.
● Exposure Compensation
Photolemur provides automatic Exposure Compensation, making dark images brighter and overexposed images darker. This technology automatically detects and compensates for inaccurate exposure settings. Exposure compensation fixes issues with exposure by slightly lightening or darkening images to make up for inconsistencies.
● Natural Light Correction
Natural Light Correction technology keeps the appropriate warm or cool tones to best represent the time of day. Photolemur Daylight Correction takes into account the time of day in your photos and adjusts tones, exposure, and contrast to bring out the natural colors and lighting of your real-life moments.
● Noise Reduction
Noise Reduction automatically finds and removes unwanted digital noise that’s most often created by slow shutter speeds in low light situations.
● Tint Perfection
Tint Perfection automatically analyzes your photos to find the best tint — whether warmer or cooler — depending on several variables.
● Face Retouching
Photolemur’s Face Enhancement detects faces in your photos, regardless of the number, then removes any imperfections and blemishes, and it does all that automatically with pleasing, natural-looking results. You’ll never get better and more effortless skin retouching, whether it’s for portraits, groups shots, or selfies.
Photolemur 3.0 Review – Using as a standalone app
Importing photos to Photolemur
To start using Photolemur, you first need to upload a photo. If you want to see how Photolemur works, you may want to open a sample image first. To do that, click on Open Sample Image at the bottom of the Photolemur window.
To start enhancing your own photos, either:
● Click the Open button in the Photolemur window, which will open a Finder window where you can select photos to upload; or
● Drag and drop an image to the hotolemur window. You can drag your photos from any Finder location (e.g. Pictures or Downloads) or from your Photos app. You can also drag and drop a whole folder with images to start batch processing.
Note: Photolemur supports RAW, JPEG, TIFF, and PNG files that are at least 800×600 px.
If you have a single image open in Photolemur and want to replace it with a different one, you can drag a new image to Photolemur while holding the Command ( ⌘) on your keyboard. This will replace the open image with the new one.
If you drag a new photo to Photolemur without holding Command ( ⌘), the new image will be added alongside the one that was already open and the Photolemur batch window will open.
Processing a single image in Photolemur
In the single image processing window you can see the difference between the original image and the Photolemur result using the Before & After slider. You can use the Boost slider to change the intensity of the adjustments. To open the Boost slider, click the brush icon next to the Export button.
By default, the slider is set to maximum Boost. If you move it all the way to the left, you’ll see your original photo. To save the enhanced image, click Export and select where you want to save it.
Batch processing in Photolemur allows you to process an unlimited number of photos at the same time. You can upload your photos to Photolemur in the following ways:
● Click the Open button in the Photolemur window, which will open a Finder window where you can select photos to upload
● Drag and drop images to the Photolemur window. You can drag your photos from any Finder location (e.g. Pictures or Downloads) or from your Photos app
● Drag and drop a whole folder with images to start batch processing After you upload photos, you’ll see their thumbnails in the Photolemur gallery.
To process all of them with the default Boost slider setting, simply click on Export # photos and choose your export preferences. All the adjustments will be applied on export. If you’ve uploaded several photos to the Photolemur gallery and you want to
change the Boost setting for some of them, you need to open those photos one by one to adjust the Boost slider.
Once you’ve changed the intensity of the adjustments for an image, you can close that image window and go back to the Photolemur gallery. Photolemur will remember the Boost setting for each individual image.
If you find your favorite settings and want to apply them to all images, just right-click anywhere in the Photolemur window and simply select Apply settings to all images. This option is only available during batch processing on the image selection screen.
If you’re done with the Boost slider, click on Export # photos and choose your export preferences. All the adjustments will be applied on export.
Using Face enhancement and Eyes enlargement
To enable face enhancement, just click on the Boost slider and then click on the face icon to the left.
After you’ve enabled Face Enhancement, you can also play with the Eyes Enlargement feature. To turn it on or off, simply click the Boost slider one more time and then click on the eye icon next to the face.
Styles are presets of carefully selected settings — temperature, saturation, contrast, and more — that add a thematic touch to your images. Starting with Photolemur 3.0, you can select among default styles created by the AI engine or visit our Skylum marketplace to get more styles.
How to start using styles

6 styles selected by AI
True to the Photolemur mindset, all built-in styles were created using artificial intelligence. At the beginning, we started with more than 200 styles and tested them on thousands of images. From there, with the help of folks who were eager to see these specific styles come to life, we narrowed our list down to six of the very best photo enhancement-worthy styles.
These six styles outperformed all others in the number of test images they were successful with, meaning that these styles themselves truly were chosen by artificial intelligence.
