Re: Adobe Photoshop 2021 vs Luminar 4 - Sky Replacement

I tried Photoshop 2021 on a 'tricky' scene this afternoon. Luminar 4 often struggles to replace skies when there are existing clouds that are fairly prominent.

Photoshop did a much better job and didn't produce the odd artifacts that Luminar sometimes generates. No amount of tweaking the sliders can remove all of the artifacts.

The tricky scene for sky replacement

Luminar 4 Sky Replacement - Note the odd behavior with the new sky and existing clouds. The masking has been confused.

Photoshop 2021 has done a better 'out of the box' replacement for this scene.
