How to Replace the Sky in a Photo With Luminar 4

Luminar 4 is incredible, they have just released the Beta version for us to test out and it is insane. The entire infrastructure got a new facelift, and it looks incredible. It is effortless to navigate, all the panels and nicely tucked in and when you open a new one, the old one closes. This helps keep things beautiful and organized.

The biggest thing about Luminar 4, at least the thing I have been waiting on is the AI sky replacement tool. I finally got to test it out, and it is incredible. It works so good it is hard to believe. They give you an excellent library of skies you can use, however, the best part about it is that you can use your own sky’s.

This is exciting because you can now use the sky from any other photograph and use it for any of your images, making it handy for those days you go out to shot, and the skies are flat. This new feature is great; now you can get more creative with your images without having to learn photoshop or make things super complicated.

Sure, for the purists out there, this feature will seem like a gimmick, they will also say that is not photography. But, look at this as simply another way to make high images and let your creative freedom flow.

In the video below, I will show you how easy it is to replace the sky in a photo using Luminar 4 AI Sky Replacement. Keep in mind this is the Beta version, and they are still working the kinks out. There are some improvements that could be done such as having complete control over the sky you are using to replace the old one. As of the making of this video you can only adjust it up and down and flip the sky. It would be nice to be able to move it around to taste. I am sure that’s coming in future releases.
