Perfect skies with AI Sky Replacement in Luminar 4

The AI Sky Replacement filter is one of the major new tools in Luminar 4 and has been enhanced in version 4.1. It does a job that photographers have been doing manually for a very long time, and it does it so effectively that it almost feels like cheating.

You can replace skies in Photoshop and other image editors, of course, but it often requires a good deal of skill, patience and expertise. If you have a nice, uncomplicated horizon line it’s not too difficult, but if you have a highly detailed treeline or city skyline, with lots of fine edges, gaps and ‘holes’, making a perfect selection can be so time-consuming that eventually it’s easier to give up.
