Introducing PhotoLemur

I recently came across this nice little photograph processing engine called PhotoLemur.

What does it do? it uses an artificial intelligence system to analyse and process your photographs.

It does  not allow creative work to be done. this, you can do later, by taking the photograph into Macphun, Photoshop or anything else.

The picture on the left was processed using Photolemur, and the picture on the right is the original image.

Now, why would a person like me use this? Let me give you an example. I went for a family holiday, and I don’t want to spend a whole lot of time processing loads of photographs.

So, I loaded them into PhotoLemur, and batch processed them. The results, I must say, were quite acceptable!

Similarly, I go to a group  meeting every Thursday, and they ask me to take photographs. these are pictures I don’t want to process. So, once again, PhotoLemur becomes the saviour!

It is very neat indeed, to use an American expression. It works fast, and the results are good. Even for portrait work.

So, give it a shot!


  1. Looks like nice software. I see a drawback. I use Lightroom and if I use that product it won’t sync with Lightroom. Does it create a sidecar file for the RAW file that LR can read? I have presets in Lightroom that work on a set of images shot the same way.

    1. Nope. I have only tried this on jpegs. Not RAW. And, it seems to be a standalone programme. However, as I mentioned, it is very good in situations where you don’t want to go into LR or PS, and go through all the various adjustments.

      It is superb for batch processing. So, to process those photos of the meetings that I have been asked to photograph, this is fantastic. Saves at least 2-3 hours of work per week for me

      1. Photolemur can be used as a plugin in LR. When I have time I’ll try that. It works on RAW files. Interested to see if LR reads the sidecar file.

    1. Which is why I will use this from time to time. I edit fewer photos these days, as I take more time per photo. So when I don’t have time and there are a bunch that need correction, this comes in handy

  2. Interesting, Rajiv. At first I thought I’d never use it, but you make a good argument for times when it would make the workflow speed up tremendously.
