Luminar 4 Sky Replacement PITFALLS

I cover two things in this video:

1.) How to use Luminar 4 as a Lightroom Plugin, when you want to replace the sky in an image.

2.) I've found, at times, when using my own sky image, Luminar does some funky things. In this video, I show everything that may happen and how to fix them.

In my next Luminar video, I'll demo how to replace a sky that must also get reflected in water. Look for that soon!
