Revisiting some old pics with Luminar 4

Upgraded to Luminar 4 and having a play with auto sky replacement. Does a pretty good job.

Quick test with few jpeg images from MP and M2P using only sky replacment tool. I personally thought it might have struggled with the wind turbines.


This is crazy…

I’m never going to believe a single photo anyone enters to a Challenge ever again :rofl:


I must admit, I do have a problem with photos that have been ‘shopped’ not just tweaked for colour and brightness for example. However, I try to look at it as artistry. Someone who has ‘shopped’ a photo is using a palette of tools and colours to produce something visually beautiful rather like a painter who takes a blank canvas and puts into the picture a little bit of his self, so the photographer uses tools on his/her computer to take a fairly bland photo and put a little bit of their self creating a stunning work of art. The old days of ‘dodging and burning’ in the dark room to enhance photos are long gone, this is modern equivalent.
Slightly off subject, I was lucky,many many years ago to do some work for a lovely old lady at ‘Fairy Dell’ a house where 2 naughty little girls took a photo showing fairies at the bottom of the garden, this photo fooled even the great Arthur Conan Doyle who declared them to be genuine. The old lady was the little girl who fooled the world until just prior to her death she admitted how she and her sister had faked the photos.

Them results are bloody impressive Callum !.
Does Luminar 4 run in 32 bit? or 64 bit?

Think its x64 only mate.

Replacing a blown out sky in a drone shot is time consuming using Lightroom or Photoshop, so I bought Luminar 4 and Im amazed how easy it can do the job Here is an image of the Oman desert I used to work in and an edited version using Luminar 4 Its great full and easy to use so anyone thinking of buying it go for it.

Moved your post to existing thread on the excellent capabilities of Luminar 4

Pretty amazed myself, especially how it manages intricate details above the horizon.

Think it also helps that it re-lights the scene to the new sky

Stunning viaduct!!


Just a grabbed shot from a panorama (below) I was playing with, need to mess with the settings or find a better sky set to lose the very obvious stitch line
