AI Sky Replacement tool

Luminar 4, set to ship this Autumn, will feature an  AI Sky Replacement tool, along with more machine learning tools, to make it easier to edit photos. 

Instead of using tools such as SmartSelection, Luminosity Masking, Overlaying, Layers, Masking, Smart Brush, ColorRange etc., AI Sky Replacement works by automatically detecting not only the sky but also objects in a photograph's scene. This helps make sure the photo ends up being as realistic as possible once you insert a new sky. It removes things like halos, artifacts and edges of transition problems that often were present in existing sky replacement techniques and AI Sky Replacement also correctly detects the horizon line and the orientation of the sky to replace so that it looks as realistic as possible.

With the AI SkyReplacement, which automatically creates a mask for the sky, you will also be able to adjust the sky to fit the rest of an image - things like depth of field, tone, exposure and colour. Plus, with scene relight technology, you’ll see the rest of your photo change in terms of light and colour when you select your sky of choice so the rest of the image and sky match. 

Pricing for Luminar 4 will be announced at a later time.
