I use the gradient mask to apply it, the eraser to fix a part of it, and the transform tool to align it perfectly.

Amazing Sky Replacement Technique in Luminar 2018 - The Silhouette Method

Thank you! ********************************************************************** COMPLICATED HORIZONS ARE NO PROBLEM AT ALL! Are you interested in replacing a sky in Luminar 2018? This video will show you how! In past videos, I have shown how to replace a sky when there is a flat horizon. It's quick and easy, and I cover that here briefly. But what about when the horizon is NOT flat? What about when the horizon is really crooked, like a city skyline? It would take FOREVER to brush mask around everything and get it accurate - if you could even do it. Thankfully, you do not have to do that. This technique will cover those situations in detail. I call this the "Silhouette Method", and you will know why after watching this. It's quick and easy, and requires just a few minutes, even for really complicated horizon lines. Just use 2 filters and a quick, automatic mask and you just got it done. Seriously. Dive in and see how this works! You'll be glad you did! This technique was used by my friend and excellent photographer Nicole S. Young (aka Nicolesy) in a video she did about 2 months ago, using Luminar 2017. I wanted to create a video showing this in Luminar 2018, and just wanted to make sure that I mention it was inspired by her video. Excellent idea, Nicole - thanks! I highly recommend you follow her because she is very talented and creative! Go check out her work! Her blog: https://nicolesyblog.com/ Her video about this: https://nicolesyblog.com/2017/10/18/luminar-masking/ Her YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/NicolesyPhotography ********************************************************************** My Gear for Photography, Post Processing, Vlogging, Tutorial Videos and more: Software: Skylum Luminar: http://bit.ly/2hWBNZ5 (Coupon Code JIMNIX to save $10) Skylum Aurora HDR: https://bit.ly/2N3av7b (Coupon Code JIMNIX to save $10) Topaz Studio: https://bit.ly/2t76txE (Coupon Code JIMNIX to save 15%) Hardware: Sony A7II (main camera): https://amzn.to/2E4yJHU 16-35mm wide angle: https://amzn.to/2WXBG4A 24-70mm midrange zoom: https://amzn.to/2E6VjzL 24-240mm super zoom: https://amzn.to/2GHF0uK 28mm prime: https://amzn.to/2I8nkeb 50mm prime: https://amzn.to/2MZzPYf Lensbaby Trio 28: https://amzn.to/2SOu9pk Lensbaby Burnside: https://amzn.to/2E5hpT2 Sony A6500 (vlogging camera): https://amzn.to/2I46Bsn Microphone: https://amzn.to/2E6VzyJ Gorilla Pod: https://amzn.to/2GCQ2Sf MeFoto Tripod: https://amzn.to/2E51jci Best backpack ever: https://amzn.to/2GAjYhE Fun sling bag: https://amzn.to/2GDtqAR Street photography shoulder bag: https://amzn.to/2I9uSNT Memory card holder: https://amzn.to/2GDpKPR Best external hard drives ever: https://amzn.to/2SK7b2G Desktop microphone: https://amzn.to/2GHFJvY Webcam: https://amzn.to/2I99p7E ********************************************************************** Follow Me: Blog: https://nomadicpursuits.com/ Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jimnix/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jimnixaustin Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jimnix/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JimNix17 ********************************************************************** The links I use for Skylum Software and Amazon are affiliate links.
