The Effect Of AI On Photo Reprocessing: Below are three pics of a subject initially photographed in 2018. Immediately below is how the photo looked when processed from RAW back then. Below is how it looked on my run through an AI photo editor (e.g., Luminar AI) using a selected setting. The effort consisted of selecting a change template (i.e., Scenery) and pressing one of the presets (i.e., Clear Skies) and the work was done. You can, of course, fine tune any number of the various aspects of the image. In comparing the two, the initial photo is somewhat dingy and lifeless by comparison while the second "pops." In judging the second above, it is perhaps a little over the top in terms of what the eye might see but maybe more visually interesting without being as false looking as the HDR renderings folks used to do. The most realistic view is just about in the middle between the two views, which is shown below. My objective here is to make the ride pics as visually interesting as possible without going too far afield of what they really look like. Given that people's eyes and color perception are different, that's not an easy goal.
